We Race On...

It is hard to believe, but also hard to forget, that today, 3 years ago, our family began to travel this road of childhood cancer. On that January 4th, I can vividly remember that it was unseasonably warm, we didn't even have winter coats on...I recall the specific outfits both Grace and I wore...I remember those last feelings of innocence I had as a was nothing big, she just had an ear infection or something...

So, our lives were forever changed that day. Our path was not the path we chose, for some reason, it was chosen for us. Now we must find the courage to keep walking that path, each and every day...remembering and reflecting on our lives with Grace. Some days, we walk slowly and some days, we must run...there are days the memories make us smile and days they make us weep.

Now, we have vowed to fight on through the foundation...For love, for hope, for Grace...

As we prepare for the 3rd Annual Race For Grace, here are a few updates...
