Hyrum is the youngest of our 7 children. He's the glue. The sunlight in our day. Hyrum reminds us all to be at peace and have joy. His smile is infectious. His hug is healing. Hyrum is facing a tough three years of chemotherapy. We are currently living in the hospital... Because of his extra chromosome and already fragile health, Hyrum's treatment, which would typically be mostly outpatient will require long stretches of inpatient stays. Weekly inpatient stays with our family living our lives in the in-between days.
We are just beginning this journey. Our needs are not yet fully understood. We understand there will be a financial strain. We understand there will be a family living apart and lots of trips back and forth to the hospital and meals that will need to be provided both for the family and me, who stays by Hyrum's side through the whole process. Not to mention the medical expenses.
We are grateful for your generosity... As Maui, Hyrum's hero from his favorite movie would say... and thank you!
