Carter’s Story

Our son, Carter Wax, was diagnosed with stage IV, high-risk, Neuroblastoma in Feb. 2008. Nine months of aggressive treatment followed before he was diagnosed as terminally ill. At that time we brought him home to live & experience the remainder of his short life surrounded by love. Our son died on Jan. 5, 2009, while sleeping between us. Carter was 21 months old.


Donations are always welcome to offset the medical costs incurred from Carter's treatment.  You can make financial contributions to:

The Cancer Fund for Carter Wax at any branch of US Bank 

Thank you for your special gift.

Happy Birthday Sweet Boy

Carter would be 7 today.  It is hard to believe so much time has passed since we lost our monkey.  As usual, we will celebrate his birthday by doing random acts of kindness, releasing balloons, eating a dinner centered around his favorite foods, and keeping him in our hearts and thoughts.  We hope you will too.

We will post a longer update in a few weeks when our emotions aren't quite so raw. 

Be kind to yourselves,
Maudy & Chris
