Happy 10th Shade’s Survivor Day

Ten years ago today, our family got flattened with the devastating news that Shade had suffered a severe brain hemorrhage. The doctors told us to fly to the hospital in San Antonio where he was being kept alive until we could say goodbye to him. That was the worst day of my life. I’ve never felt grief like that. But Shade defied the odds. He’s the boy that lived, except he didn’t get a cool lightning scar like a certain young British wizard.

We got a second chance with our son, and we found out what a beautiful community we have. Our friends and family rallied around us and gave us the support we needed in the dark days. Shade’s Survivor Day is as much about celebrating a decade milestone of Shade’s defying the doctors’ prognosis. It is a celebration of the goodness in all of you that shared your love and help and charity. Thank you for being there with us and helping Shade keep up the good fight.
