On June 1, 2010 our two year old, "Little Air Bear," was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Type M7. After enduring 146 days at Primary Children's Hospital, Erin is now in remission and living a full life at home with our family. Her strong will and constant happy smile is an inspiration to us all. Through our difficult circumstances we found great strength and peace in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for checking in on us.

Acute Myeloid Leukemia: Technology & The World

It's amazing how in an instant we have been able to connect with friends (some we haven't talked with for over 10 years) from all over the world while Erin's been battling her Acute Myeloid Leukemia M7. What a wonderful world we live where we are so blessed to have the technology to instantly send out a million emails, texts, & messages to friends so that they can join us in a Sunday fast for Erin.

We appreciate all of your prayers and fasting this Sabbath day! The Lord works in miraculous ways and we are already feeling the sweet Spirit from your prayers and fasting. Thank you.

Right now we know that we have friends and family fasting on the Sabbath from Sweden (my sister on a mission), Phillipians, Armenia, New Zealand, Australia, England, Maine, New York, Virginia, California, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, New Jersey, Samoa, Massachusetts, and of course Utah. Let me know if I missed any.

  5. It's Sunday evening and I just found out about little Erin. Unfortunately a little too late for Fast Sunday. Please add New Jersey to your list - we are praying (and will be fasting soon) for your family. Lots of love!

  10. We are happy that you posted the information that Sister Swenson in Sweden was fasting on Sunday. We sent the information to President Anderson and the Office to let her know about Erin. We also included Erin in our fast. We are hoping everything goes well from here on out. And, yes, we need to give blood soon. Best to you!
