Death of a Superhero
A Family's Story about Courage, Bravery and the Defining Moments of LOVE
Our sweet, lil' baby love lost his battle to AML Leukemia on March 8, 2010. We fought long, hard and very aggressively for 2.5 years, only to have his cancer come back for the fourth time to finally take his life. He was only 3 years old.
This entire blog is about Hunter's amazing journey. It's about his life and his love......his determination and his courage.......his absolutely, brilliant personality, and the affect he's had on people all over the world.
He's left an unimaginable footprint on this earth and has changed the lives of thousands of individuals. People who didn't realize how precious life was, now live it with extreme gratefulness. People who took every minute they get to spend with their children for granted, now savor every last second. And people who weren't quite sure what love is all about, now love deeper, love stronger and love with every ounce of their soul.
People all around the world have shared their love, their well wishes, their prayers and their inspiration, and we could have NEVER achieved as much as we did without them. We are humbled by their generosity & their true friendships & are forever grateful for every last person that has come into our lives through our experience with Hunter. He was our precious baby love who we loved and cherished with all our hearts and we are forever crushed and terribly, broken-hearted.
Dance in the clouds baby cakes. Mom & dad are watching proudly & you will remain so very close to our hearts for all of eternity.

The Healing Hunter Shoe
These shoes were designed on Hunter's behalf from some very lovely friends of ours. Their goal is to bring awareness to others about Hunter and to donate proceeds to us for Hunters future. The owner and her sister started this company with the goal of doing more for others. The company name is "Aldabella Scarpa" which is an Italian version of the most beautiful shoes. They believe that every child is beautiful and hope to create shoes for their beautiful feet! It is their goal to have the "Hunter" shoes online and in retail stores by late Spring.
We are sincerely touched, honored and thrilled. How incredibly neat!
Shoe Update as of 2/14/07 :
Well, we took the sample shoe on the road and the feedback from retail stores for the Hunter shoe has been incredible. We have 2 stores in Orange county that will be placing an order soon. We hired a sales rep yesterday, and she just loved the shoe. We told her the "Hunter shoe" story and she was so excited to support our vision. So, in the next few weeks the shoe will be on display at the LA fashion show, the San Francisco gift show and the Seattle childrens show. There is such a positive energy that has taken a life of its own. We will be adding the brown color to the order, I think that will be a great variety of colors to start with. As soon as we get the samples we'll let you know. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to do something for Hunter and your family. It has truly been a gift to us. Lotsa love, Ann Marie and Monica
