Alisa, Taylor, Jayden & Logan Cunningham's Journal
Written May 27, 2013 8:44pm by Dawn LeeHello everyone and HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY! It has been a BEAUTIFUL weekend here in San Diego.This Friday, May 31st, there will be a Dance Fundraiser for the Cunningham Family being held at Cathedral Catholic High School from 5-9pm for $50/person. See the attached flyer for more info. Contact KC Hellenkamp to pre-register or if you have any questions. Helly15@aol.comHere is one of the most recent updates from Alisa:One of the things that I pray that everyone would learn from our experience is that life, as you know it, can change in the blink of an eye! A little over 2 months ago I didn't know many that were busier than me! I was quite proud of my ability to work hard, multi task and keep my kids, the house and my job in decent working order and a good rhythm. Taylor Cunningham and I were just talking tonight about how 2 months ago her main focus was on Prom, SATs and basic high school social drama! We now know first hand how quickly life can change and priorities can readjust. A good night's sleep is something to Praise! Recalling a special memory from early 2013 is something that Tay and I cheer about (short term memory has generally been pretty much wiped). Reestablishing daily morning and evening routines for chores and such are resisted by children but insisted by me, the mom!
I will never look at my children, my husband or my extended family the same ever again. My friendships have ALWAYS been important to this only child but are now cherished at a whole 'nother level! My Walk with my Lord and my Faith in general have grown faster and stronger than a teenage boy's growth spurt!!
I will continue to lean on my Lord and grow in my Faith. I will continue to lean on my family and friends because it 'takes a village'. I will forever praise God for helping me grow during this special, challenging time!Thanks again for all of your SUPPORT!Much love,DAWN

Today has been a day full of thankfulness, appreciation and countdowns! Countdowns bc my girls are counting down to stay positive. Taylor has a handful of days until she walks in therapy and about 20 days when the dr says she will get discharged and be able to sleep at home! (3 months in the hospital which is crazy BUT we are SO THANKFUL bc she is 'ahead of schedule'... Initial estimates guessed 6-9 months before she would come home to us so WE ARE BLESSED.'
Jayden is counting bc she has 5 more weeks in the halo (which is very hot) then hopefully only 2-3 weeks in a neck brace for stability. After that, optimistic reports say she can resume softball and soccer where her teams are patiently waiting!!
Logan is on a short count down of days!! She has been released to do swimming and she hopes to come back to dance within the month with soccer following shortly after.
The boys are hanging in there also with summer basketball gearing up! Dallas is closing in on 6'2" having grown around 3 inches during the spring. He is hoping for another 3-4 inches!
Finally I am also wonderfully thankful and blessed! My whole family was home today since Taylor earned a visit pass bc of her hard work! Rehab visits are good and I am working hard. Still praying for pain relief in my left wrist/hand but, considering all things, I am doing awesome, cherishing my family, and working hard towards achieving little goals that I used to take for granted! God is good and I am thankful for trusting me with this challenge! God bless you all this week!Much love and THANKS for all of your support!
Written May 10, 2013 11:50am by Dawn LeeHappy Happy BEAUTIFUL Friday everyone. To all the MOMS out there I hope you have a HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!Wanted to remind all of you that there will be another Cunningham Family Fundraiser on Monday, May 13th at two different Round Table Pizza locations.:o) Present the attached flyer between 11am and 9pm at the Tierrasanta Round Table Pizza (10415 Tierrasanta Blvd) or the Casa De Oro RTP (9676 Campo Rd) and 20% of the sales generated will go back to the family! Yummy food while helping a GREAT cause, what more could you ask for! HahaHere is the latest post from Alisa:Another special day spending time with family, friends, doctors and therapists! We were busy all day and I never had time for a nap so this mama is tired. Most exciting part of the day was Will and Logan getting to go on an adventure up to LA and work a print job with H&M. We did the audition back in late January and they called for the callback right before the accident. We obviously didn't make it but the company has continued to check on us over the past couple months! Miraculously Logan is healed up and not feeling pain so she was able to go with daddy and take some pictures! She was SO EXCITED and since my wonderful friend (who is an RN) is visiting from Alabama, Will was able to take Logan on a special, fun day! We are so blessed and fortunate that Logan had this exciting day. We are so blessed with love, support and daily fellowship! This tired mom is counting her blessings and thanking God for healing and also sending fun opportunities when able. We are all thankful and blessed!Thank you all AGAIN for all of your support!Much loveDAWN
