Seattle Run of Hope

Two great friends of ours, Mike and Wendy, created the "Cash of Hope" team for the Seattle Run of Hope, which will take place on Sunday, October 3.  It is a 3k walk or 5k run - Wendi, Jack Jr, Cash, Kingston, and I will be walking (I don't think I've 'ran' since high school) - it's a beautiful location, Seward Park, right here in Seattle.  I'm hoping as many of you as possible can join us.

The Seattle Run of Hope will raise money for pediatric brain tumor research - last year they raised over $250,000.  You can register to participate in the event by clicking here.  Cost to register is $30 per person.  If you can't participate but would like to sponsor the Cash of Hope team you can do so by clicking here.

We've been so careful the past 7 months to avoid crowds because of Cash's counts that we haven't participated in anything that supports cancer research.  Thankfully Cash will be all done with chemo and we will be able to re-join the community so-to-speak so we're looking forward to the event and it would be great if many of you were able to walk with Cash to support this important research.

It seems like we've been running into walls when it comes to seeking additional treatments for Cash - so little is known about Cash's tumor but we're holding out hope that something is out there that can cure Cash or children like Cash.  Of course we know that God is the 'Great Physician' and can heal Cash, and ultimately, our 'healing' comes when we join the Father in heaven.  So it's a win-win for Cash and for us as well...

I'd like to share a few pictures from yesterday of the family - it's amazing sometimes to sit back and realize I have three boys, a wonderful wife (married 15 years today), and an incredible network of family and friends.  We are blessed beyond measure!
