The ending and another new beginning
If you follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/HelpShaneFightCancer), you know we had a busy December.
With the help of our supporters and the Kendra Scott store in King of Prussia Mall, we were able to support families through the Kisses for Kyle Foundation and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Palliative Care Team. We bought individuals gifts and gift cards from KFK and gave the PACT team, as well as a another local organization that helps families through CHOP over $1,000 in gift cards.
So, we enter a new year….2020.
I understand the anticipation of starting anew, seeing where the New Year takes you, but it’s also a reminder of another year without Shane.
Don’t get me wrong, we celebrate the anticipation with the kids, make resolutions, reflect back on the year and I wake up positive to greet the New Year. It’s just that we are missing a piece of our puzzle, our family….the life we never got to see in the last 4 years of this decade.
We missed birthdays—2, 3, 4, 5 & 6. Shane missed being a big brother, family vacations, the start of school and team sports, the list could go on.
What we can focus on is
Things we can do in the future to remind us of how strong we are from what we’ve been through.
We are so thankful for the success of Shane’s Future Days from the beginning to now. We are incredibly proud of the progress of Shane’s tumor donation and the research it has led to, as well as our continued partnership with Children’s Cancer Therapy Development Institute and CHOP’s PACT team.
We are blessed to have met so many through our journey and to all of you who have encouraged us, cried with us, supported us and created this with us.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
May the New Year and new decade bring health, happiness and a CURE!
