My heroes are Linnea and Andrew, who stayed by their sisters side throughout her cancer 6 years ago. Andrew was 6 1/2, and Linnea 10. All three kids were in the middle of their parents getting a divorce when middle sister Sammy got diagnosed with fourth stage Wilm's tumor. Linnea and Andrew took the care, responsibility and compassion to help re-build not only Sammy, but themselves. Although I will never be able to know what it was like for them to live through all this in such a short and traumatic time period, I know what it looks like to see them just love unconditionally without it having be their story. Their sister is a 6 year SURVIVOR...we are amongst the "lucky ones". Everyday we see a billboard with one of your messages, and everyday I read the e-mail quote of the day to my kids. Thank you for giving everyone a positive thought for the day, sometimes for the week. God Bless.
