In 2008 my daughter Connor was diagnosed with a Glioma Grade 3 malignant Brain Tumor.
Connor was the baby. She was an amazing young lady with an unstoppable spirit and unending generosity. She never skipped a beat ... Cancer, okay lets do this thing and along the way I can collect some hats. She just had this remarkable ability to just smile and take it all in stride, she never stopped smiling. We spent the next 8 months fighting cancer with various treatments. Most importantly we spent our time loving each other and living every moment. She touched so many and gave so much to those around her, she was a force ... she emanated hope and showed so many the importance of staying positive.
To Honor that Spirit we continue her generosity by paying it forward. To that end we put together Chemo Care Kits that include items to help children cope with long hospital stays and chemotherapy treatments. These care kits include items that parents may not realize their child might need for their comfort, to help keep them occupied while in the hospital and self care items that will hopefully take some stress off of the situation while letting them know there is someone out there who cares, understands and wants to help.
