Shannon Huber came. Jaxon was her special little guy. He has been gone for a year.
He was a special little guy.
After everyone left, she and I had time to talk. We both agree this Wishing Rock thing is a way to stay connected in a meaningful way with those that have followed us at Seattle Children's. There is such a need to reach out and touch those that are starting this process. We are hoping to do a small thing. A meaningful thing.
We all want our time in Cancer World to have a good purpose. We need light, not dark. We need to make sure the hours we all wait, the millions of dollars expended, the long suffering of our children have purpose. I think this project was born from a desire and acknowledgment that as humans we need connection. It is important to reach out touch and do a kind act. More important, the connection needs to be made.
So, we are off and running. Things are falling into place. We are going to make this a great thing.
