Help us honor Wesley's Journey on September 22, 2005
On October 1, 2004 our world was turned upside down when our precious son Wesley was diagnosed with Leukemia a few days after his 18th Birthday. On that day our child, with hopes and dreams of college, a family and a prosperous adulthood, saw his dreams slipping from his grasp. Yet, Wesley forged on and faced life and his journey with cancer full of strong will, optimism and determination. Throughout his fight, he never once looked back or second guessed his faith. We all celebrated with Wesley on his 3rd Birthday, June 9, 2005, when he received the unselfish gift of this Bone Marrow Transplant. We will forever be grateful to his anonymous donor for the treasured days and memories we will be able to hold dear to our hearts forever. We encourage each and every one of you to instill his courageous example and help us continue his fight against blood cancers. We can all join together in honoring Wesley by sharing his story and raising awareness to help find a cure for this horrible disease. Did you know:
Every five minutes, someone in this country is diagnosed with blood cancer. Every nine minutes, someone dies.
Leukemia is the leading cause of disease-related death among children under age 15.
Lymphomas are the most common blood cancers.
The myeloma survival rate is only 30 percent.
Join our family's dedication to putting Cancer Out Of Business in Wesley's honor by supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Their relentless quest for a cure and desire to improve the quality of life for patients and families is remarkable. Right now an estimated 747,465 Americans are living with blood cancers. Help us put and end to those numbers. Come out to hold our hands and help us hold our heads high as we commemorate Wesley's journey at this year's Light The Night Walk on September 22, 2005, in Montgomery, Alabama. We are walking as part of the Light The Night's largest national friends and family team, Friends of Allie. To find our more about the team visit www.friendsofallie.org.

Please carry with you the message Wesley held so dear:
...Jesus said, "I assure you, even if you had faith as small as a mustard seed you could say to this mountain, `Move from here to there,' and it would move. Nothing would be impossible." Matthew 17:20
