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.

MORE THAN CUTE SHOES
Every now and then, a story just touches your heart. One of my photographer idols Zen Todd has been blogging his son Hunter's battle with AML Leukemia. At only 14 months old, little Hunter was diagnosed with the deadly disease and has been battling it like a real trooper ever since. I check the blog Healing Hunter often to check up on him regularly. On my last visit the first post was so touching as I read how so many contribute to helping his son recover.
One of several companies donating profits to Hunter's healing is Aldabella Scarpa. They designed a special and adorable shoe, and named it after him. Proceeds of this shoe will be donated to Hunter's future. The shoes are adorable, reasonably priced and supportive of this little boy's medical needs. I really can't find one reason not to buy them for every little one I know!
We wish Hunter and his family all the best.
Thank you Lindsey - we are so touched that you take the time to think of our little boy. He is very fortunate to have this amazing chance at life - that so many are helping to provide. Thank you and thank everyone for their love, support and prayers.
PS - Thanks for being a fan of the photography!
