I posted here when all the boards first merged. Then I moved into a new place and I no longer have wireless so getting online isn't as easy as it used to be. I've become a bit of a lurker unfortunately. Anyway I'm a Junebug for those of you who don't know me. My DD just turned two last week! I really really can't believe how fast she's growing up.
I wanted to post this for a coworker of mine. He's my age. He and his wife have a May 2010 baby and their second is due any day now. When his wife was pregnant with their first he was diagnosed with cancer. He is now battling it for a second time and is undergoing chemo as we speak. They're hoping baby #2 can stay put until he is done with this round. He is one of the most upbeat and positive people I know and to think of their family struggling through this is heartbreaking. My version of their story is too short to do it justice but they've set up a website: http://nobodyfightsalone.com/#
If you get a chance please read the site and in particular the "how to help" page. A friend of theirs has set up a line of clothes and accessories on cafepress which is linked on their website with 100% of the profits from this weekend benefiting their family. Even if you aren't in a position to help them at this time just spreading the word around will help.
Thank you all so much!
