Stuff About Me:

My husband is my hero… let me tell you why. In September of 2000, my husband lost his daughter McKayla to leukemia. She was 8 months old. While doctors did the best they could, the only decisions my husband and McKayla’s family could make were about how to keep her comfortable until she passed away. Understandably, he has struggled with his loss ever since. Despite this, I continually watch him rise above his circumstances and honor his little angel by going on to live a beautiful life, including fathering our four children. Thanks to McKayla and my husband, I truly understand that every moment of our life with our loved ones is an invaluable gift which must be treasured. It’s an important lesson and, without him, I may never have truly understood it. For this reason, he is my hero.


I know that there are countless heroes out there, just like my husband, who have lost a little one way before his/her time or who are bravely standing by their child as they watch him/her fight for his/her life. To honor these people, I am currently working on a campaign to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Part of our funds will go to support a little boy named Felix who, like McKayla, is facing the battle of his life. We have an ambitious goal so please support us in any way that you can. Every little bit counts! Every one of you can make a difference.
