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.

Light The Night Walk



Four months ago we were suddenly thrown into a new life.  John and I haven't felt much like opening up about Erin's Leukemia to the public, but we are breaking out of our shells and have decided to participate in cancer events to help heal the ache in our hearts.  For our first activity we plan to participate in a walk and carry illuminated balloons, in honor of Erin, in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's:

Light the Night Walk
Saturday, October 9th

We would like to invite all of you to join
the Little Air Bear team and walk with us.
We also invite you to donate $1 or more
 to help support blood cancer research.

Saturday, October 9th
Check in: 5:30 pm
Opening Ceremonies: 6:15 pm
2 mile walk: 7:15 pm
Sugar House Park
2100 South 1500 East Salt Lake City


Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.  Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration. During this leisurely walk, walkers carry illuminated balloons - white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer - thousands of walkers - men, women and children - form a community of caring,
bringing light to the dark world of cancer.

  1. this is fantastic! we will definitely be participating in some form or another. thanks for spreading the word.

    i know what you mean about now wanting to be really involved or "public" at first. we felt the same way. i think it takes months for a lot of people to feel ready and want to branch out- it certainly did for us.
