Cancer is wicked. Having been diagnosed with cancer, I have kept hope that maybe I will be the only one in my family to have to go through this stuff, but that may not be the case. I now know of two moms that are not only battling their own cancer, but also that of their children. Unfortunately, there are probably many more, but I found these amazing women by looking up ACC in the news.
The latest is Julie Duttine, and her son Jaden. If you are anywhere near South Hills (Pleasant Hills, PA, I think) on February 13th, please get some tickets for the show "'Til Death Do Us Part", the latest in the Late Night Catechism national shows. I think the take on both the matinee and the evening performances will go to the Duttines to TRY to offset the cancer treatment costs. Here is a link to the pdf of the order form , and here is a link to more on the Duttines, halfway down the page under "Catch the catechism". Julie also writes a blog, and posts updates on Jaden here: http://supahmommy.blogspot.com/search/label/jaden%20duttine . I will add her blog to the blog roll on the right side of this page. I wish for them standing room only crowds.
The other momma that is dealing with not only her ACC but her child's cancer is Sherry Rogers http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/sherryrogers . The great news on her blog is that her son's and her latest scans are looking good! Thank goodness, and I wish for them all a very boring and love-filled spring ahead.
