This post is not about Josh, who is doing fine, thank you.

This post is about Bonnie.

Josh was first diagnosed in November, 2001. He was 11 years old. Life has gone on. Yes, it’s been a battle and a veritable roller coaster, but through it all, Josh has never been alone. Leukemia is his fight, but he has had lots of great support.

Bonnie has born the brunt of it. She has set aside her career, postponed her goals, deferred her dreams and been nurse, taxi, advocate, patient coordinator and mom. She has more hours sleep on hospital chairs than in our bed. And through it all she has maintained some semblance of sanity.

Now she wants to do something more. She is training for a half-marathon to raise money for the incredibly worthy organization, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If you can help her out, please go to her fundraising page at:

Thanks.
