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.

Brain Lesion Schmesion

We received FANTASTIC news yesterday. Hunter's Brain Lesion has disappeared! According to the results of his Cat Scan on Monday, the infection in his brain has officially left the building. Yesterday was the first day without his daily 2-hour dose of Antibiotics! We have clinic today to follow up on everything, but as of now, Hunter is in perfect condition! (Aside from the two biffers on his forehead from when he bit the dust). We'll have one more surgery in the next week or so to remove the Broviac Line from his chest, but that should be a pretty simple procedure and the end of his surgeries.

He's on his way to a normal kids life!

Hunter not wanting dad to let go. He's not really a fan of the Cat Scan machine anymore.
