Weiman Family Fundraiser

This little buckaroo is Ethan Weiman, 4 year old son to My Time to Create Design Team member, Alicia Weiman. Ethan, Alicia and the whole family have been rallying behind Ethan as he has been battling neuroblastoma cancer for 2 years now. Sadly, Ethan passed away this past friday. I can't even begin to explain how sad I feel about this. Learn more at their website, Caringbridge Journal. You can read more about their journey to try and make Ethan well. As Kristen Bueter aptly said, "Sadly, after a long, painful battle, the good Lord called Ethan home."

In an effort to DO something, which is what we all feel when something as unexplainable as this happens, Kristen and Lauren Meader have set up an account in benefit for the family. Please visit either one of their blogs to donate or find out more information.

Thank you for taking the time to read about it here. As a mother of two shining stars myself, I can't imagine the loss their family is feeling now. All I can wish is that they are able to take some comfort from their memories and from the support they receive from near and far.

Ohhhh, that poor family. You said and re-said that extremely well. I will surely count my blessings and send whatever I can their way. What a fine cowboy angel to ride around heaven... Our loss, heaven's gain. God bless his dear family.

I don't even have words, but you have used yours well, helping spread the word about this adorable little boy, his grieving family, and the benefit to support them.
