The boys received a night at Great Wolf Lodge in the Poconos for Christmas. We are very grateful for many fun memories and time together as a family. We swam, treasure-hunted and enjoyed watching snow fall on the mountains.
Even though we had to bring Justin’s chemotherapy medications, childhood cancer and all its complications did NOT get to come along. For twenty-four hours, Justin wasn’t a kid fighting cancer. And Nicky and Michael weren’t siblings trying to carry the weight of an extremely needy brother, overwhelming stress on their parents, and often feeling lost in the struggle that they can’t fully understand. They were kids just being kids.
