I signed on tonight to read some of the kids' blogs I follow and went to Kevin's site. Kevin was a brave warrior that was diagnosed with medulloblastoma at age 3. Ten years later, at age 13, Kevin was diagnosed with GBM-another brain tumor. 10 years later! Kevin died in January of this year. This entry just struck me-

Mom and Dad will be at the cemetery from 1-4pm tomorrow with some honey baked ham, sandwich fixings, and drinks if anyone wants to come and join them to honor Kevin's birthday.

No parent should have to celebrate their child's birthday gravesite at the cemetery. How humbling.

If you'd like to join us in the fight to save more kids in their battle against cancer, you can purchase a luminary for RELAY for LIFE! As of tonight, we have 16 bags sold. Here is the information:
