Teddy’s Story

Teddy was diagnosed with a malignant tumor in his spinal column and lower brain on Jan 12, 2010. Since then he's braved neurosurgery, paralysis, multiple recurrences, two-and-a-half years of weekly chemo, daily radiation...and always wondering what’s lurking deep down inside.

Despite all this, he continues to fill our home with laughter, joy...and in Teddy fashion, always keeps us guessing what he's gonna do next...

Latest Journal Update


Says Teddy, "Looks like it's almost completely gone!"

Just got home tonight.

The mountain passes delivered as promised, and Teddy got his second wish.

Tons of snow, ice and whiteouts all the way back home to Durango.

An epic snow fort is already in the making.

So appreciate your prayers.

Tired and grateful...
