Our Journey

video

**For some reason you have to click the little sliding thingy next to the "play" button to get it going...Maybe someone can help me with that**
Our reason for keepin' on....

This year has been our toughest to date. Earlier this year, we got the news that River too was born with the Hepatitis C Virus. And though his chances of developing Cirrhosis and ESLD are 20-30%, we will be his biggest advocate...diet, monitoring, prayer, and the faith that God and Science will have a cure for this disease that has already affected three generations of our family. It was only months later that we found out that my liver is failing. Though my energy levels are low, my spirits are high, and we are moving full force ahead, because this is not only a fight for me, but a fight for anyone waiting to start living...for my son, for anyone's son or daughter who God forbid may need a transplant in the future. Our decisions now can give them life later!
