I'm Standing Up for my best friend, Chip, who died of cancer when we were only 9 years old. I'll never forget all of the many trips to the hospital, chemo treatments, bone marrow transplants, and medications he and his family had to endure. Nor will I forget how I felt when my parents told me that Chippy had gone to be in heaven with God. I'm standing up because no one should have to suffer through experiences like these. Stand Up with me, Stand Up with us!
