Thanks... I won't lie - it's still painful when April 5th rolls around (his birthday), as well as December 12th, especially around the 14:36 mark (when he died). This year will be the tenth anniversary.. Best I can do is live on and honour his life, no matter how tough it can be even to talk/write about such. I still owe him supper too, that's the part that kills the most (I do my best to live by my word, so...y'know him being no longer on this plane of existence makes it difficult to keep one's word... But I do my best through helping others out when possible, especially those I consider close to myself)

Yeah. Word from mom was that he was rather touched by them stopping in!

I'm folding for my grandmother who i lost to lung and brain cancer in 2001 ,
for my cousin who is currently battling breast cancer
and for the 4 year old kid of good friends of mine who has a rare blood cancer.
post #396 of 396
I used to fold for a myriad of reasons, mostly relating to people in my life that have had or died from cancer. That alone is a strong motivator for folding.

A little under two years ago, my first son was born and we had a birth diagnosis of Down Syndrome. We had no warning leading up until then and it caught us completely off guard. Having done research and talking to various doctors and specialists, my wife and I realized that our son had a higher than normal chance of childhood cancer. It's not a significant increase as far as odds go but enough that one takes notice. What worried us even more was the highly increased chance for Alzheimer's and early on set dementia that people with Down Syndrome are prone to.

I fold for my son and his peers/friends and hope someday their worries are lessened by research we put in today.
