I’m not posting this to make anyone feel sad or guilty. I’m posting it because its a story that I believe needs to be shared, and because I hope if some of you are able, that you’ll donate to the family’s cancer fund.
This also may bring perspective, as it has for me, on how we often LET ourselves get upset and stressed out over things that, in the end, are not worth getting upset over at all. If the biggest problem in our lives right now has to do with wanting to get engaged or planning a wedding, we’re pretty damn lucky.
I went to high school with Kezia. Her and her husband lost their 18 month old daughter to cancer last week, and Kezia herself is in remission. The funeral service was this past Saturday. This story has actually made national news so this is not private information.
Here are her and her husband’s blogs -a link to donate is in the margin of the blogs.

My heart is just hurting for them. What a horrible trial to go through. My thoughts and prayers are with them.

I know… I started to write her a message on FB – but I just sat there crying and couldn’t think of ANYTHING to say. So I ended up just writing that – I don’t have anything to say except I’m so sorry and my heart is breaking for you.

A friend of mine’s nephew was born with neuroblastoma and diagnosed at only 3 days of age. He was lucky that they caught it early but his journey sounds so similar to this one. He spent almost 4 months in the hospital and ended up needing a liver transplant, which my friend donated a portion of hers. He is lucky to have survived his battle, neuroblastoma is a vicious disease.
I’m sorry to hear about your friends story 🙁

I’m so glad to hear a happy ending – it seems like everyone who has experienced it has experienced death…

What a heartbreaking story. I have no comforting words for them, but will keep them in my prayers. So, so sad…
