Gracie and Lukie are healthy. The illnesses we have endured with them are nothing compared to the battles some moms face every day.
Seven years ago, I was fortunate enough to help start a St. Jude Math-A-Thon at my school. In the years, we have participated, we've raised a lot of money for the children there to receive treatment. We think about those kids every moment we are raising the money. The people we forget are their moms. Luckily, the children don't.
Happy early Mother's Day to the moms of all children struggling with disease and illness. May your day be filled with laughter and joy.
