Nathan turned 3 on 1/27/08. Isn't he a cute little sweet pea?
First thing everyone always says, is how good he looks and that you'd never know how sick he's been or gets....
We have been blessed to be able to have two Children's Benefit Dinners in the past year. One last Aug, 2005 and then again this past April 15, 2006. We were incredibly blessed to have a beautiful special guest with us at this most recent event, actress and comedian Sherri Shepherd. She was very kind and gracious, as were all the friends, family and community who were able to attend or supported our event. Sheri was very generous with her time and care for our family, and we just can't say enough good things about her. We wish her every success, and blessing that the Lord has for her and her family, and hope she can make it back to Tucson soon.
We would also like to say a special thanks to Doug Martin for his help in writting the forward for Nathan's Story, and his support and prayers for our family. He has demonstrated Christ's love to us again and again.
Also we would like to say a special thank you to Jim Click, who has been such a blessing to our family and Nathan since he was diagnosed in April 2005. Mr. Click is truly kind and his generosity comes from a genuine heart.
It is devestating like we've said before to know Nathan has this diagnosis, but we know that God is bigger than all this, and that He, or his love for us, and for Nathan isn't changed. Having good friends like this in combination with such a great family, and the prayers of so many of you give us a lot of peace, comfort and hope. we are thankful also to his doctors at Phx. Children's hospital, and for Dr. Ron Hanson who diagnosed him.
God bless you, and thank you for sharing this journey with our family, and for your prayers and support.
