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 Countertop Jam



For those that haven't seen this....................it will lift your spirits.

This was Hunter's countertop jam after his 2nd round of chemo, (we are now on the 4th round). Make sure you watch it full screen so that you can fully appreciate his fine foot work.

The magical wiggle beat is done with a salt shaker and a cardboard paper towel roll.

This is a real JAM, I'm very impressed with the Hunter Wiggle and the BEATS from Momma, with Zen helming the photography of course. You're the best parents, and YES, this made me smile. Hunter has got some RHYTHM! Thanks for sharing, love it!

I just watched this video again a couple of days ago, and it still brings a smile to my face :-)

Waiting for the day in the near future when you post a new Hunter Jam, with all three of you moving, grooving, and celebrating to that crazy Lenore beat!!

Much love, and many positive thoughts to you all.
