Heros are around us everyday. I can’t imagine the pain and sorrow you’ve both gone through, yet endeavor to improve the lives of others.

I stand in awe and gratitude for such strength. My heart goes out to both of you.

I thank God every day for my healthy kids. Glad you all took the path you did through this and not let the dark take you.

Our thoughts, prayers, and deepest respect go out to both of you. I don't know how you two have done it. I don't think I could.
