Katie:

When I read what your son Hunter wrote I was touched beyond words. I, to, have a Hunter Brown for a son. My Hunter is 14 and is the light of my life. He has been an enormous source of strength to me since he found out that his grandfather was dx'd with lc. Always positive and always trying to take care of me. I think God blessed us with two wonderfuls boys.

:D:D

Good luck in reaching your goal Hunter!!!!!

Thank you guys SO SO MUCH, Teresa, Teri and Randy!!.

He is in school until 3PM (central) so he doesn't even know about your donations yet. He will be SO happy and proud.

You guys are simply the best.

Thank you Rochelle so much!!

My heart breaks for you and your kids...I can't imagine how hard this is for them at this age, or how badly it hurts watching them...while you are going thru your own pain too.

Hunter's best friend's mom passed away in May, she had ovarian cancer and she was younger than me. He's had an up close look at what his friend is going thru and has a big sensitivity in his heart for those who have lost their parents.

Please know we BOTH are keeping all of you in our hearts and prayers.

what a great letter! i realized that this year i've given a lot of money to leukemia/lymphoma (i seem to know a lot of folks who did marathons and bike rides in memory of people and i supported all of them) and then my sister, brotehr in law and i raised abut $4000 for the livestrong foundation doing the bike ride in philly. but i've not supported a lung cancer specific foundation and that's just wrong of me! :o so glad to help out, i'll bet he is thrilled to have overshot his goal!

(my real name is kim, and if you are thinking of folks while walking, add my sister kelly to that list please)
