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.

Hunter's Photo Shoot
Believe it or not, he had to make several phone calls, send text messages and get out some emails before we could start. Very busy this guy.
Then he insisted on eating. He told us his energy was low, and in order to perform, he needed a cookie. Good thing for us...he used the "cram in pie-hole" method. He ate it super fast.
Then he was finally ready to throw down some expressions!
Then he apparently needed "a break" and had some concerns as far as the direction of the photo shoot.
Then he actually had the nerve to show his disgust and demand more money.
.....we talked more...he calmed down.
We offered a monkey backpack as payment.....and he went for it.
A couple more random images......
And you can't forget the toes.
Remember this guy........
That was back in December during his first round of chemo. Wow.
