Care for Cade

As some of you know my little brother Cade has been diagnosed with brain tumor. He has already undergone 2 extensive surgerys and just started radiation. He is the best guy you'll ever meet and is such a sweet heart! He and his wife of 2 years Aly just found out a few months ago that they are expecting a little one! We are so excited for them but the reality is that the medical bills are huge and having a baby is also expensive :). So we have set up a 5k to help with this. Its $20 per person and if you pre-register you are guarenteed a shirt! Its on July 30th in Brigham City. If you want more info and to particiapte the registration forms are on I am also selling "Cade Breaks Cancer" braclets for $2.00 each! Every little bit helps! :) I love him so much and would do anything for him.  I hope you will help and join us in supporting him!  Love you all and thank you for your support so far!

Rough week

Thor's brother passed away a week ago today.  He was only 54 and it was so sad.  We have all been dealing with the loss in our own way.  I think of all the times he helped us when we were first married, and all the fun we had with him over the years and I cry.  It's such a sad thing when someone we love's life is cut short!  I am so thankful for my religious beliefs when it comes to these things.  It's the only thing that gets me through.
And then, once we thought the chaos was all behind us, my brother started radiation and had to go back into the hospital.  He need another shunt put in his brain. Too much pressure and fluid is creating headaches.  So worried and just want him to know how much I love him.  In the midst of all of this bad news, he and Aly found out that they are going to be having a boy!  I am so happy for them and hope that soon all of this bad stuff will be behind them and they can enjoy being a cute little family!
