For the Love of Armstrong

Army was a sweet three year old boy, that's right.. I said was.

He's gone now, he was taken by a monster called cancer.

So many of our friends have fought this beast and way too many have lost.

Army lost his battle to a brain tumor (Glioblastoma Multiforme), an aggressive, almost impossible to survive brain tumor.

He fought long and hard, but Army never had a chance. The monster was just too strong.

He passed away just a week before his Make-A-Wish trip to Disney World.
Armstrong and his brothers were looking forward to making memories for a lifetime, but his life ended too soon.
Now not only did they lose a brother, they lost a dream along with him.

A very special friend of mine, who up until now has remained nameless, is Mimi Avery. Mimi lost her son Julian to the beast when he was only 41/2. It was Mimi that I posted about a while back when I told of my friend who was placing her son's gravestone instead of attending his kindergarten graduation (post dated June 4). She is truly an amazing woman.
Mimi desperately wants to see Army's family get the wish that he wanted for them.. to see Disney World.

She and some other wonderful people are trying to raise funds to send them on the Make-A-Wish vacation that they never got to take.

If you would like to help or want to find out more please visit the Carepage of Mimi's son "King" Julian at www.carepages.com/carepages/JuliansWorld. Believe me, once you've been there, you'll never be the same.
