So that covered the short term now-what. Moms and I need to redefine ourselves and our rituals as individuals and as couples... the what's-next? We've been the extremely proud, often terrified yet determined caregiver parents filled with faith and hope of a cancer patient since 2013 and that's been our primary role. We learned a secondary role very early in our journey together. After her first chemo regimen Madison was hospitalized with an infection... a compromised immune system and then bam... three days in the hospital which included Christmas eve 2013, that story here. We were so inspired to pay-it-forward by that act of kindness by complete strangers that we've been paying it forward since, Madison included in more ways than you probably know. In her legacy we'll carry that baton and invite you to do the same, to do good, to feel good... it can be as simple as donating blood regularly, throwing a few bucks towards a worthy non-profit regularly, donating your time serving homeless people a Thanksgiving meal, or even sitting at a Pet Smart helping organizations place stray cats and dogs. While the picture below reflects Madison's determination and playful character during treatment, stop and ponder where urgently needed blood comes from... walk-in's are often welcome. Don't think about it, let's simply do.
