Diagnosis Day

Our beautiful little girl turns four years old in just over a month, but on this day we celebrate something greater. It was 3 years ago that Keira Grace was diagnosed with cancer and today she is alive and well and looking eagerly to her fourth birthday! No one would ever guess the battle she fought -- and won. Standing on this side of the tears, prayers, and long, dark nights of questions and pain we relish the great joy of her laughter, her vibrant smile and her great love of life. And we are eternally grateful.

As we reflect on these past years, we are in awe of the amazing support of literally hundreds who rallied around us. We did not walk this path alone, but like many before us we had the tremendous support of family, friends, and even those we did not know, but who heard our story and began to pray for our daughter. We were never alone in our battle.

Now we want to give back.

On May 22, 2010, will be the first CureSearch walk in the DFW metroplex. For us this is not just another fundraiser, but it is personal. Jason, Erin and Keira will be walking to raise money to rid our world of this horrible disease that has impacted the lives of so many children and families. We will walk to find a cure for childhood cancer. Will you join us?

You can sponsor any of us in our walk, or you can join our team and walk with us. The beauty of this walk is that you can even walk "virtually". Add your name to our team and "walk" with us from anywhere in the world. We have set a monetary goal of funding we would like to raise, but we have a personal goal as well. We'd like to have 100 people walk with us as part of our team, people willing to add their names to the list of those who would - "I too would like to reach the day when all children diagnosed with cancer are guaranteed a cure."

If you are willing to join us, please visit:

Select Dallas/Ft Worth and then join Team Keira.

Together we can make a difference for those that are fighting this battle now!

Thank you,

Jason, Erin and Keira Grace

2 years and I still love cake!

First trip to the zoo - a great reward after a long day at Childrens!

I see how long it's taking mommy to get through - I'd better get started now!
