My Story

Welcome to our CaringBridge site. It has been created to keep friends and family updated about our loved one.

My Story is the introduction to our CaringBridge site.

Be sure to read the latest in the journal, view the photo gallery, and drop us a line in the guestbook.

Sitting on our desk at home is a paper that came home from James' preschool class that says "James is special because..." We completed the paper and were ready to return it on Friday, 4/25. This is what it said...

James is special because he is a kind and caring child who loves life. He adores his older twin brothers who he is always trying to keep up with - including playing hockey, soccer and t-ball. He is very social and loves playing with his preschool and neighborhood friends. James is a laid back child who is usually patient for his turn, but stubborn enough to know what he wants and cute and smart enough to know how to get it.

------------

Today that is all true and now we'll add...James is special because he has leukemia. He is a very strong and brave child who is ready to fight and beat this awful disease. Today our family, extended family, friends and neighbors will begin this journey to recovery with James.
