Our day of infamy, November 30th 2015. When Ann & I received the devastating news of Jace's leukemia diagnosis, a cancer of the body’s blood forming tissues, it brought us to our knees. We didn’t know a lot about leukemia but what we did know was that it is a life threatening disease. We were scared and didn’t know what to do or what to expect. Nevertheless there was no time for denial or time to take in the heartache. As parents, we needed to be strong for Jace and his three brothers as we about to embark on the fight of our lives! With the help of our family, friends and community we persevered and made it through some of the toughest battles of our lifetimes. Fast forward to present, Jace is thriving and is for the most part just like any other kid on the playground albeit his continued maintenance chemo through March 29th, 2019.

Jace’s leukemia diagnosis has opened our eyes to a part of this world that we were previously bind to, that being “childhood” cancer. If you ever see a CHILD fighting cancer it will change your outlook on life FOREVER! We are one of the fortunate families, unlike many others, who are currently winning the battle against cancer but could not have done it alone! Now that we can see the light at the end of the tunnel it's time for us to give back and help other children and their families battling cancer.

Our team of supporters known as Jace's DEFENDERS is partnering with Arizona's own Children's Cancer Network to raise money for Children's Cancer Network as well as Phoenix Children's Hospital as part of Run to Fight Children's Cancer 2019 and we would love to have your support in reaching or better yet exceeding our goal! I understand you may not be a cancer parent, so raising funds may not be a priority, but the day before our son Jace’s diagnosis we weren’t cancer parents either….

You can donate right now by hitting the “Give Now” button and using any major credit card - it's easy and only takes 30 seconds. Funds We appreciate it so very much, as do the cancer-fighting superheroes who face this terrible disease with courage and bravery.

Thank you for joining our team in the fight again childhood cancer!

Jace...I don't know if you know this, but your Dad is kind of uptight. If he moves too fast, he farts, only it's really high pitch. Long story short...I think he's a good guy, farts and all. Are you running tomorrow. If you do, tear it up!!!
