LIVESTRONG


Today, we applaud all cancer survivors.... and we purray for all that are suffering from this terrible disease and for the families that have lost loved ones to it.








Our family remembers Kelly today....the
always happy and smiling boy that was 
taken from us too soon......
11/14/85 - 9/8/91


Kelly, mama's nephew, lost his battle before we 
were born, but the family has told us so much
 about him that we feel we knew him also.

He was diagnosed with Leukemia a couple months
before his 3rd birthday.  He fought valiently with 
radiation and chemo treatments for nearly 3 years 
before losing his battle.....in all that time, he 
achieved remission once for a brief 6 week period.




We purray for a total cure for this terrible disease.

Sending many purrs and love to all,


Sammy, Andy and Judi

Oh, Sammy and Andy, please tell your mom I'm so sorry about your nephew. This is so sad. Thank you for sharing him with us. We really hope there will be a cure. We lost our dear cat, Pickles, to lymphoma about seven years ago.

Hope you're all having a nice weekend!

We are sorry that Kelly lost his fight against cancer. He looked to be a lovely little boy - losing one so young to the disease is so tragic.
We hope there will be a cure soon to stop all this needless suffering.

So sad about Kelly. Your family was blessed to have such a courageous fellow, and now he is an angel.
Lovely story, although sad. So many broken hearts too.

We like your hats, kitties!

Marg said...

That is so sad about Kelly. I just hate hearing about young people or children having the disease. It just seems so unfair. Thanks for this great post.

I'm sorry to hear about Kelly. However, he will always be remembered. Cancer can only take away the body. It will never touch his spirit!

Angel and Kirby said...

Cancer is a terrible disease, but it is even worse when it attacks children. We purr that a cure will come soon. LiveStrong

When cancer strikes down the young, whether humans or animals, it is especially awful. We are so sorry for your family for the loss of Kelly. We support contrinued research until stories like Kelly's no longer have to be told.

In memory, and in honor of all those who succumbed to cancer and all those who are living with it.

Ginger Jasper said...

Kea said...

Sending love and hugs today; we're so sorry that Kelly was so young to have had this disease and to have succumbed.

We're sending purrs, healing Light and universal Blessings to All Beings who have been affected by this terrible disease.

Through tears the mom is typing for me. We are so sorry that Kelly lost his battle with this terrible disease. Together we all show our support in making cancer awareness today. Too many lives have been lost. Hopefully some day cancer will be something of the past never to worry about again.

That is a lovely tribute to Kelly. It is very sad that he was taken so young.
We honour those who have survived cancer, and remember with sadness those who didn't.
