Grant a Wish Foundation

My student (who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor) came to visit his classmates (my class!) today...

Vincent (ill student) was wheelchaired into the classroom by his two eldest sisters. My class was so excited to see him, and so was I...

The Grant a Wish Foundation has granted him his wish...
He and his family will all be going to China for two weeks!!

As soon as Vincent and my class left, I fell apart and sobbed...

It hard to watch someone you love die, especially when they are children. Good luck.

Que Gacho! It's very hard to see someone that way, especially if it's someone we know. I'll keep him in mis prayers!

So sad.
It is uplifting, however, to hear that there is a foundation out there that is able to provide him a wonderful trip.

oh my, i am SO sorry - reading thru your posts with previous comments in mind, you have a lot going on in your life right now.

my mentor would say, "when you have a lot going on, you cannot give undo attention to any one thing." gosh, she was right! perhaps that will help you some as it has me.
