A Childhood Cancer Survivor Blogging about the World of Childhood Cancer

Grace: A Child's Intimate Journey Through Cancer and Recovery

Good morning, friends. It’s nice to have my brothers home from college for the summer. Even though they’re busy with their work schedules, and one is also extremely busy with his play schedule, I love seeing their faces and grabbing them with a big hug as I pass them in the hall. Maybe I’m thinking this morning of this because, in a few days, Mom and I will be leaving home for three weeks. Neither of us has ever been gone from home for that long. We need to get in lots of hugs before our departure! This of course includes Larry!

Since I last posted our BullHorn Itinerary, our trip has altered—or fine-tuned as Mom says. As we communicate with people and hospitals, she is “refining” so our trip can be the best it can be. Is there someone you know in a hospital in one of these places we will be visiting? This Hope Tour wants to meet them. Do you live in one of these places? Would you like me to share with your group? I there any way I can help bring childhood cancer awareness to your community when I am there? Please let me know!

Each one of these people is doing great things for children with cancer, and I am honored and blessed to have the chance to thank them in person. Something very wonderful happens when people with the same passion connect. Yes… it’s like 4th of July fireworks! Crackle, crackle, BOOM!

It’s time to get the signs ready for the car windows.


Thank you, Michelle, for sharing your beautiful design and most of all for your commitment to fighting childhood cancer. Your design will be shining on our car from Sea to Shining Sea.


Hmmm…. Wonderin’ what I will have to write about?
