It's 11 p.m. and we're home snuggled in bed, 25 minutes from the nearest store that is open.  I hear the whimpering from the kids' rooms and I know one of them isn't feeling well.  I can't count the number of times I've put everyone down for bed, seemingly happy and healthy, only to have someone ...

I think they are probably some of the words that every parent dreads the most.  I know for me, the mere thought of hearing that one of my children has cancer (or any serious illness) brings me to my knees.  Before I was born my aunt and uncle lost a daughter to cancer when she ...
