This is the ongoing story of our five year old son's battle with stage 3 Rhabdomyosarcoma in his abdomen. He recently earned his wings and entered the kingdom of heaven. He is full and surruonded by God's glory. He is our little hero and an amazing example of the adversity that children can overcome. God is our Healer, now that medicine is done, GOD will begin. All the glory belongs to HIM

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY RYAN!
What a great birthday celebration! It is the day of mass birthdays in our family: my mother, my son (Ryan) and my nephew, Everett. What are the chances? Well pretty good I guess. Christian got released from the hospital early (early parole for good behavior – Chris bought pizza for the nurses on the unit!)
We had a lovely party with many of our close friends. It is such a joy for Chris and I to watch the all of the kids playing in our new space and enjoying each other’s company. It always seems like mayhem with everybody around but to be honest I don’t think I would want it any other way. It feels good to fill the spaces in the house and spend a day enjoying the company of our new friends. Thank you to our friends from Olds who drove up, the Jaffray’s, Steph and greg, to the Carters who are always good for a laugh and positive outlook on life and to the Phaneuf family whom have become our ACH oncology family – this process would be so much more difficult without you. And thank you also to the Klein’s whom are such loyal and gentle friends.
Memorable thoughts for the day: Kennedy and Christian single handedly polishing off 8 cupcakes. Nicky and Ryan chasing each other around the toy room. Sophie and Evelyn battling for doll supremacy. Good food, great company, amazing day.Thanks for reading.
Jason was the 'hit' of the party!
