There are times in our lives that we have to be brave and selfless, but could you imagine facing that everyday?
I’ve been following this blog for a while, and I always have mixed feelings when I read it. I am in awe of what Cherie and Matt have to live with on a daily basis, and am very impressed by the way they handle it. I also feel great sadness, as it does not seem fair. I often read Cherie’s posts with tears in my eyes. I wonder what I can do to help and the truth is, not much. My own daughter is only a couple of weeks older than Charlie, and I’m so grateful for her health. Reading Cherie’s blog keeps life in perspective, it makes a lot of the daily things that we face as parents seem quite trivial.
For a number of years, I volunteered for Camp Goodtimes. It is a camp for kids with cancer and I always found great strength in the wonderful spirit of these children. I had several occasions to visit a few of the kids at Canuck Place and know what a wonderful place it is. Which is why I’m asking that you take a moment to read Cherie blog, follow the link to her adventure challenge page and do a little to support Canuck Place, and all that they do for amazing families.
Thank you for your generosity. And Cherie, if you happen to find this and read my post, thank you for your amazing courage. Your daughter’s beauty and spirit shines from each of your posts, thank you for allowing us to “know” your family.
