What a wonderful program. My son had a hole in his heart. Luckily for us, it closed up quickly after he was taken off the ventilator.

My good news? My family is getting together this summer for a mini family reunion. I'm beyond excited!

one person CAN make a difference! Once again, we can see that, through yet another awesome foundation or charity, like this one to help children with heart problems!

some good news? I just received news that I am going to be the recipient of an incredible SelectComfort bed in the coming weeks! This is an answer to much prayer from friends around the world. I have 3 complex tumors eating through my spine. 4 years ago I was given notice by drs that I had maybe a month... I am still here!( that's good news!)..but I live much of the time in bed, and I live with 24/7 acute pain... the hardships financially that arise when one has serious medical problems sometimes has disastrous affects on your daily living as well. So spending 70& of the day and night in a bed that has huge sags in it, is not condusive to healing or comfort. So you can see how this "good news" is lifechanging! I cannot wait!
