When you hear the words "your child has cancer" it changes everything. Life also changes very dramatically when the doctors tell you "there is nothing more we can do." Childhood cancer changes everything. For me personally, I have experienced a double whammy. In 1973 I lost my twin brother at age 6 to leukemia. In June 2010 our 15 year old daughter Katie was diagnosed with osteosarcoma. She passed away on February 10, 2011 just shy of her sweet 16.
