Sad News

Last month I posted about a little girl, Rowan, who was battling leukemia and undergoing a bone marrow transplant. Theo and I met up with her and her wonderful family at Disneyland just before her transplant.

I am profoundly saddened to say that last week, Rowan passed away. She contracted pneumonia and her weakened immune system was not able to overcome it. My heart is just broken for Rowan's family. If you'd like to see some pictures from our trip to Disneyland, click on the picture below, and please keep Rowan's family in your thoughts and prayers.

Oh, Shelby. So sad... I'd visited her CaringBridge site and left a message, and kept thinking hopeful thoughts for her. For her family too. I will keep thinking of them. Thanks for passing on the sad news so we can support them even from a distance.
