Our son Paul lost his fight with brain cancer at age 12, 1996. He lived several years longer than expected. He never let this get him down because he cherished every moment. It taught us as a family that life is short but always sweet. We would not take back one day of this illness, even though there were relapses and struggles. His school still celebrates his birthday every year because his spirit was so alive. Bless all of you and good luck.
