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.

Every Monday Matters Interview with MommyCast

Matt Emerzian, a huge fan of Hunter's, was interviewed by MommyCast and mentions Hunter at the end of the segment. Good Stuff! Click here to hear the interview. (You can Fast Forward to the end to get to Hunter's part, but he does talk about good stuff, so the whole thing is worth a listen).

Zen and I with the Author's of "Every Monday Matters".


People are still continuing to leave well wishes and prayers and positive words up here for Hunter. Please feel free to go on his page and leave a little inspiration. I sincerely read them every day and shower them with Hunter on a daily basis!


The Hunter Shoe is extremely popular! Aldabella Scarpa, the Healing Hunter Shoe designers, have spread his shoe across the nation! His shoe is in 30 stores and can also be found in Canada and Puerto Rico.  Part of the proceeds of this shoe go to Hunter and his future!  Thanks to all who have purchased them!  They're great........your little one will loooooooove them!

They also have little girls shoes that are just absolutely darling. They've got a fantastic selection and their shoes are extremely well made and come with a huge amount of style! oh yeah........and all their shoes come in cute little hat boxes!  Nice touch.

I also started a community on Facebook for Moms Dealing with Childhood Cancers. I would love for it to be a meeting place to exchange stories, gather information and to just get some helpful tips on how to basically survive such a traumatic experience. Please contribute or forward to anyone who you think might benefit!


Here we are below getting desperate for hospital entertainment.

We also now dance on the tables for fun. We haven't gotten in trouble yet.

He also takes all of his calls now from the sink and that's also where he prefers to drink his juice. He's becoming extremely high maintenance when we have our stays at the hospital.  But reeeeeeeaaaaaallllly enjoyable!

Oh yeah.........and we have also realized why Hunter has been such a spaz lately.

After he chugs his juice, he chugs coffee grounds..................nice.  We just read that caffeine is no good for people with cancer.  Another thing to cut out of Hunter's diet.  hee hee.
