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.

Round 2 of Chemo is Hard

Hunter is in remission but he is not out of the hospital nor is he out of danger. The ten day long second round started yesterday. It's already taking it's toll. One of the side effects of this round of chemo medicine is fever and nausea. Hunter has both. He is suffering again from 104 degree fevers and low energy. Late last night he vomited. He also gets eye drops every four hours during the therapy. They must burn like hell because he screams like a banshee.

It's tough seeing him go from getting better to getting sick all over again. We are certain it will pass - just not soon enough.

Hey Todd... Elif and I pray every night that Hunter gets better soon. It sounds like he's responding the treatment. Big hugs and we'll come by this week to check in. Todd Yasui

Hey guys, just checking in. Hunter looks gorgeous with the mohawk! I'm anxious for an update. I'll call tomorrow. I just sent in a prayer request. For the next 30 days Hunter will have prayers said for him 24/7.
Keep up the fight. Treatment will be over before you know it!
