Bucket List

On May 2, 2014, doctor’s informed us our ray of sunshine, little d, only has 6 months to 3 years left to shine. Infantile metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD) would slowly dull the brightness of our light through a rapid and progressive timeline.

Within as little 3 months little d could lose the mobility of his limbs, 12 months eyesight and speech, hearing loss and dementia will soon follow. The sadness that little d will be deprived of life’s many sweet offerings is heartrending.

To ensure he knows the peaceful surrender of welcoming a new day, the quiet sounds and sight of rainfall and the vast excitement of Disney we have complied a bucket list. Compiling a bucket list for a two-year quickly dissipates the dense haze of denial one blindly stumbles through when faced with such unbearable grief. It awakens the heart and mind to absorb the preciousness of each moment… each day.

If you would like to help provide a memorable experience please donate a few dollars to help fund little d’s bucket list. We understand times are challenging for everyone so if you are not able to gift Daniel please let him gift you. We welcome everyone to follow his facebook page “Little D’s Bucket List”. His page will document each item he experiences on his bucket list. We hope little d’s joy reminds you to cherish the little things, each day and each other.

Thank you
