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.

Childhood Cancer Reserach

We are excited to participate in
the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) 
LIGHT THE NIGHT WALK
this Saturday the 9th.

We are very appreciative of all of those who have donated to our Team Little Air Bear page
All donations go to fund research for childhood blood cancers.
We are joining in the fight to find a cure.

Some interesting facts . . .
**While survival rates for many childhood cancers have risen sharply over the past few decades, cancer is still the leading cause of death by disease for young Americans between infancy and age 15. -President Obama
**40 years ago, a blood cancer diagnosis was 10% curable.
**Today blood cancers are nearly 78% curable.
**In recent years, the amount of funding for childhood cancer clinical research from the federal government has been declining
**Each year more than 12,500 children and adolescents are diagnosed with childhood cancer.
