I follow a blog called My War with Cancer about Nick- in his own words, "My name is Nicholas Raitt and I am 19 years old. On April 12, 2007 (at age 18), I was diagnosed with stage 4 alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma - a very rare childhood cancer, located in my right sinus area. On April 15, 2008, I was confirmed to have no evidence of disease." (Congrats!!)
His mom wrote a beautiful article that I think is worth checking out: moments By Lori Brower. It was interesting for me to see what it is like from a parent's perspective...some moments, like graduation from high school, are so very similar to my own. Thanks, Lori, for the insights!
Today, I am grateful to be able to give back to someone who has done an incredible amount for me (my mom), family, friends and God.
