Travis and Katelyn preparing to pass the "Homecoming King and Queen" to the new class.
During Tyler's battle with cancer, we consulted with many hospitals. One of them was the Dana Farber Cancer Institute out of Harvard. Since September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month, the Boston Globe went to Dana Farber to develop a photo essay on childhood cancer. The below picture is of A.J. Piniewski and his sister.
Like Tyler, A.J. was a healthy and athletic teenager. And like Tyler, without warning, he was diagnosed with Burkitt's last year. A.J.'s family has been a wonderful source of support for us in Tyler's fight. Bob Piniewski, A.J.'s dad, has created People Against Childhood Cancer. You need to check it out. Bob and A.J.'s aunt also came to support Tyler when we were at the MD Anderson Cancer Institute in Texas, only months after A.J. passed away.
Here are a few more of the pictures. To see them all, and to post your support for raising awareness, you can go here.
FIGHT TO WIN!
