30 Days/30 Stories
September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. At PCFLV, we are committed to spreading the GOLD all year long. However, in September, we truly make it our mission. 30 Days, 30 Stories celebrates the children we know and love and the brave battles they fight and have fought, with their families by their sides. In celebrating these beautiful children and their stories, we hope to inspire you to join us in our mission to SPREAD THE GOLD in September and all year long!

September 28th
Born on Christmas Eve, Michael Brian was an absolute gift from God. It's hard to believe that was almost 16 years ago. When I hear that his friends are now getting their drivers license or buying their first car, it makes my heart ache for what should be. A simple milestone that cancer robbed him of. Even though he has been in Heaven for eight years, he is still with us in our everyday lives and we miss and think about him always. He has officially been in Heaven longer than he was on Earth. This has been the most melancholy realization for me, that I will spend more years without him than I did with him. However, those great memories of him live on through my other two children, Evan and Dakota. Michael's "baby sister" is now three years older then he was when he left us. Though she was conceived at one of the darkest times of my life, she brought light into my life and into Michael's because he was so excited to have a baby sister. Michael was only four-years-old when he was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma. He fought the cancer and tried to always have a smile on his face. He endured many rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, surgeries and two stem-cell transplants. It's always hard to see your child be sick, knowing there is nothing you can do. As a mommy you always want to take the pain away, but with Neuroblastoma, you can't. You can only hold their hand and be there for them at the toughest of times, knowing you stuck by their side and loved them with all of your heart. I can only hope someday there will be a cure for pediatric cancer, so other families don't have to say good-bye too soon.

Pediatric Cancer Foundation of the Lehigh Valley has been a huge part of my grieving process. They have created a safe place for me to share stories, happy and sad, about Michael with other grieving families. I have discovered my love for art therapy and PCFLV has done a great job providing outlets such as mosaics and zentangling classes.
