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.

Seeing Beautiful

There was a time when I saw cancer
There was a time when I saw sickness
There was a time when I felt heartache
There was a time when I felt despair

Now I see beautiful
I see health
I see life

Thank you to all of you who have happened upon this blog today.
I hope you find hope and feel God's love as you read through my posts about Little Air Bear's cancer story.  Thank you for leaving comments about your own children who have fought or are still fighting cancer.  God will support you through you trials your troubles and your afflictions.


  1. Love this. She looks gorgeous. I've been going over old cancer pictures and posts today and doesn't that seem a million years away in some ways? Seems like just yesterday and seems like another lifetime. Life is funny.

    Hope you all are doing well!

  2. Oh, that makes me want to cry! She's simply beautiful, and healthy! Surviving. I'm so grateful for people like Erin. She reminds me that not everyone dies from cancer, a reminder I need a lot. Thank you sweet Erin (and your Mama for telling your story) for that. :)

  3. So glad your little one is doing so well, she is just adorable! Hugs, Trish
