These are the kind of stories we need to hear and read about. People who touch other people's lives. Life is short so live it to the fullest. Don't let anyone or anything stop you from doing what you want to do.

I strongly encourage the parents to donate the money to the Cancer Center for Kids, in Mineola. They offer much hope for young cancer patients and they do not turn people away like Saint Jude's, who turned us away. Sloan Kettering is all about the insurance, so we didn't waste our time there, either. The address is 200 Old Country Road, Mineola, New York suite 440. Thank you to all who read this and are moved to help such wonderful people.
