Treatment Outcome: Bereaved

The Sweger-Nesbits

William was always putting people before himself and he lived each day with a positive attitude and a smile on his face. Even on his really difficult days. Walking out of that hospital without my son was the most difficult thing I have ever had to do, and I continue to put one foot in front of the other every day since. I honor him by doing my best to live the same.

The Dougherty Family

Having a child is carrying a piece of your heart outside of your body. Losing a child is having to carry that empty space with you for always. It is a wound that never heals. We had hope and tried to make every day count for Odin.

The Strong Family

Everything felt unreal and everything happened so fast. Treatment was work then all of a sudden it was not and Caden was gone. There was nothing I could do to save my baby. There was no real treatment to help him fight. I felt completely powerless and defeated.

The Bottari Family

….having your infant son take his last breathe in your arms.  Something I would never wish on anyone but also something I wouldn’t change for a second. I was there to bring him into this world and I was there to ease and comfort him on his way out.

The Wilson Family

Our entire family of 7 was in the hospital room when doctors first told Mason & us they feared he had cancer in his leg. It felt like a nuclear bomb exploded & transported us into the unknown realm of pediatric cancer. Mere minutes after hearing this life changing & unwelcome news, our brave & unconditionally loving first born son told me he was glad it was a him & not us the parents or his little brothers or sisters. In that unforgettable moment, my son’s soul & character was fully revealed. His love, his loyalty & his determination.
