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.

Make-a-Wish Royal Princess Ball

A little behind schedule, but still worth the wait.

Last June, Make-a-Wish threw a Royal Princess Ball for Erin.
It was a farewell party, sending us off to Disneyworld to Meet the Princesses
Renee Lyman (Erin's Wish Granter) escorted the kids outside.

We had a carriage ride around the parking lot.

Some of our princess friends came along.

Erin got a surprise visit from Prince Charming (our good friend Cris)

And a surprise visit from Cinderella (our friend Shay)

Our friend, Brenda Hult, who made Erin's dress.

Cookie decorating!

The Sky View Student Body Officers who helped our wish granters pull the whole thing together.

  1. Those are awesome pictures! What a fun memory!

  2. Oh my goodness, I love that little girl and I love MAW.

    If it's alright I am going to send your info on to a mom that's 19 month old was just diagnosed with AML. They are at Primary right now, but live in Vegas. She is from SLC originally and this is where their family is so I don't know if they are staying yet. Anyway, I know how lonely it can all be and I don't know anyone from Vegas with AML. You and Erin are both so strong and such a great example that I thought you would be the perfect person for her to contact. Of course I will do what I can too, but I don't know much about AML. Her name is Shawna and her little girl is Tenley.
