Happy Thanksgiving!

This Thanksgiving we truly have much to be thankful for. This has been a year full of life lessons for our family. One year ago today, Heather and I announced some very exciting news. Colin was going to be a big brother! In the month's leading up to Heather's due date we received news that a finding on an ultrasound caused some concern. We felt truly blessed when Maddison was born on Monday July 27th a healthy, happy baby girl. Little did we know, that the joy we felt would be equaled with devastating news soon to come.

On Friday October 2nd, Colin was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. As we are now two months into treatment those original feelings of grief have been replaced with knowledge and hope. We are truly thankful for the advances in medicine along with the dedication and compassion the team of doctors and nurses who have given us hope in Colin's cure.

We are thankful for the love, support and strength our family and friends have provided to us.
Happy Thanksgiving to all,
Mike, Heather, Colin and Maddison
