Relay for life 2008

I just wanted to share what a friend of mine (Heide Randall) did for the Relay for Life in VA last May. It is a video that she put together of her "Wall of Courage" that she had displayed there. The facts about Pediatric Brain Tumors are astounding. Please visit this site, Marcus is included in it, as well as Jessica, who is Heide's daughter. Heide has been very active in Childhood Cancer Awareness with a lot of support for Pediatric Brain Tumors. Jessica passed away in 2007 from the same kind of Cancer that Marcus had called "Anaplastic Astrocytoma".

Thanks Heide for all the work you do to get the word out about Childhood Cancer, as well as Pediatric Brain Tumors. You are amazing!

What a great link! It blows your mind to realize the extent of these brain tumors! I had no idea that there were so many children affected by "the beast" in all it's forms. I felt so alone when we were dealing with it all 13 years ago.
And can I ever relate to the awkwardness of informing people that we had a child that has passed to the other side of the veil. Take care! Love ya, LaRae
