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.

Healing Hunter Fundraiser

Lots of love and support was present at Hunter's first fundraiser. Hosted at Kado – where the food was simply delicious. The entire experience was truly exceptional. I was never a fan of sake, but I sipped a little of almost every kind they had us taste and I was definitely amazed at how delicious and refreshing they were.

Cool cat Ira and the fabulous Wendy Parker smiling in the background. Wendy organized this event and we are sooooo incredibly grateful and appreciate all that she did and can’t thank her enough. It was a great night.

Ira, "I just wanted to say that on behalf of Sophaleena and myself that we found it a privilege to be with you two on this night. The courage and dignity in which both of you have held yourselves during such a trying time is so admirable, and operates on a level that we have never seen. We lend our support, love, and good energy. So, stay strong and keep up the positive vibrations. We will see this through!!!"

Lenore with Actress and Cover Model, Molly Culver, and Bob and Gail of BobGail Special Events.

Bob again with the legendary rock star Paul Stanley of Kiss. By the way for those that don’t know, Paul is an extremely talented painter as well. His work is very cool.

Lenore and Zen with Paul Stanley and his Wife Erin. Paul and Erin are the proud parents of a studly little boy as well. We did a photo shoot of them recently and he was quite the ham!

"You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We can't wait to see Hunter smile!" Erin & Paul

The very accomplished Jennifer Gendron, (Co-Owner of Touch Massage Boutique in Beverly Hills) with Megan Driscoll, who can chef her butt off. Her food is amazing.

Spencer Robinson, Paramount man, John Oropallo, mac daddy producer, and Cher Ferreyra, an extremely talented actress whose credits go way beyond and was recently featured on Veronica Mars.

Cher, "I just wanted to say that you guys are amazing. You both have inspired me on so many levels through-out the years, and it never ends. Thank You for existing".

Molly and her stunt man husband Clay Cullen. One of Zen's newest dirt bike riding partners. He's had a smile on his face ever since he got back from his last dirt bike ride. FINALLY, someone else who can keep up with him!!!

"Hunter is a strong soul and we are pulling for him every day!! Go Hunter GO!!!". xo Molly & Clay

Zen and I enjoying our first night out together. Thank goodness for Grandma and Grandpa being in town. Only lasted about 3 hours, before we went back to the hospital to hang out and snuggle up with our little man for the night. He cuddles like a champ.
