My little friend Kyle was diagnosed with an inoperable brainstem tumor in February 2007. Since then, he’s undergone radiation, clinical trials, chemotherapy, surgery and more. He is a very brave boy. To read more about his treatment, see pictures and learn more about his family, click here to be taken to his blog. Kyle’s Mom, Christin, also writes a blog about her daily experience of juggling two active boys, a full time job, Kyle’s medical treatments and side-effects. You can read her blog here.
One of the things that makes him and his older brother Nicolas very happy is mail! When I went to visit them last night, they were both opening Christmas cards from well wishers. Many of the cards were corporate cards from local businesses who had tossed Kyle and Nicolas onto their own mailing lists and other cards were elaborate handmade cards with long notes. It didn’t matter what sort of card it was – the boys were thrilled to receive holiday wishes from people all across Washington state who were wishing them well.
If you have a moment, please send Kyle and Nicolas a Christmas card. They love opening them and their Mama is planning on stringing them up in the hallway, for a giant reminder of how many people are rooting for Kyle and his family.
Their address is:
Kyle and Nicolas Roger
837 South Hills Drive
Bellingham, WA 98229
PS – If you have any bath fizzies lying around, Kyle loves to take baths and bath fizzies make it much more fun for him.
