God has a beautiful new angel. His pain is gone. His family WILL SEE HIM AGAIN. God bless them. To assist the family with burial costs contact the Augusta Health Credit Union, or the Dupont Credit Union. Both parents are unemployed and have no insurance. It is time we Christians step up and help a fellow a Christian family that is hurting.

The best pediatric hospitals for cancer are listed in the US News and World Report Best Hospitals survey. Some NCI (National Cancer Institute) hospitals are now using nanotechnology and other research to fight cancer on the molecular level and families facing these terrible health crises are well advised to review the US News hospital survey.

All hospitals are not created equal.

So sad by this story. I have a 9 year old son and can not imagine the pain they are feeling now. I can only say a prayer that God comforts them.

My son went to school and Ethans sister is in his class this year. We have been to a couple of fundraisers for him and his his family over thelast year. We were devasted to hear of his passing. May God Bless the family in knowing he is at peace and alive in the loving glory of the Lord.

I'm so sad. I too have a 9yr old boy and it hurts so bad to know someone has lost their precious child. I will continue to have this family in my thoughts and prayers.

Hospitals are bad places for infections. Someone should do something.
