Pennies for Patients

Hello All, It is definitely different not posting all the time. I would always think to myself, time to post, get it done. Now, I really do not have a lot to post about. Our family is great. We are wondering if the kids will ever have a 5 day school week since a snow storm has come in every week, canceling school. The kids are loving it and Nick is the first one to put on his snow gear and go outside. I can remember back to the first winter (08) when Nick was dx and he had no hair. He would complain all the time that he was cold and that Mommy and Daddy were to cheap to turn the heat on. Now, he runs around the house without a shirt on. We are grateful for his strength and how quickly he has bounced back to the child we knew before Leukemia.
Nick & Colby's elementary school will be running a fundraiser event called Pennies for Patients and Nick is the honorary kid. All the proceeds will go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I put together an autobiography of Nick and sent in some pictures. The kick off meeting is on the 7th and Greg & I were invited to attend. South Elementary has been so supportive of Nick and have gone out of there way to make sure he is always safe.
Colby was able to bring Nick's port into school last week and he was a proud big brother explaining to his classmates what the port actually was. The nurse came in and gave him gloves to wear, during his presentation. I wish I could have been there to here him speak. Karen

I am so glad I found this bog. Nicholas is amazing and an inspiration for my son, Sam and I. Sammy was dx with T-Cell ALL Sept. 2009. We have about a year to go on treatment but we are getting there. Reading about the port coming out made me cry..I often find myself living for that day! I will be spending time reading this blog in more detail and gaining strength from it, I am sure. Thank yo SOOO much for sharing the way you did.
