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.

More on Sky View High School Cause Week

Last March, the Student Body Officers of Sky View High School organized a major event - CAUSE WEEK where they worked hard to sponsor our little Erin's wish to meet the Disney princesses.  I am sure they spent many hours working on Cause Week and even helping out our make a wish granter in carrying out a princess ball for Erin.

A big THANKS to
Corbin, Melanie, Miles, Tanner,
Josh, Kyle, Mike, & Natalie.

They made the most amazing video that was shown at their cause week assembly.  They gave us a copy and we watched it with tears in our eyes.  It still amazes me that MY CHILD had cancer, and that the pictures in this video are of MY CHILD.  You never imagine that things like this will happen to your own family.




A blood drive was held in honor of Erin.  It was the BIGGEST blood drive Sky View has ever had...126 students volunteered to donate blood!  Giving blood is an easy way to help kids like Erin. 

The American Red Cross says, "One donation can help save the lives of up to three people.  If you began donating blood at age 17 and donated every 56 days until you reached 76, you would have donated 48 gallons of blood, potentially helping save more than 1,000 lives!"


196 Make a Wish stars were hung from the ceiling of the school.
All in honor of Erin's wish.


Thank you Sky View High School student body!
We appreciate all your hard work

to make
Erin's
Wish
Come
TRUE!
