Shane’s Future Days was nominated as one of the Top 75 Childhood Cancer Blogs by Feedspot. We came in #42 and are in great company. Thank you for the honor!

This picture was my first and only Mother’s Day with Shane.

Today, I am a mother who cannot celebrate with all of my children, but I can celebrate my accomplishment of being their mom. Time moves on and new beginnings are upon us, but I am changed forever by my precious boy.

In his short time here, Shane taught me to appreciate the beauty of each day and how precious life’s moments are.
I will never doubt my ability as a mother or the things I can push myself to do for the sake of my child.
Even if that meant letting go.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you….moms, moms to be, moms who lost, moms of sick children, moms who are trying to conceive, and those who aren’t moms by blood, but play the role of one…..celebrate you.

Sometimes you come across things and they just tug at your heart. I was clearing out Chase’s school folder this morning and found this.

He’s such an amazing, thoughtful, honest young man.
We are so proud of him.
I wouldn’t be surprised if he joined the fight and became one of those scientists.
