FRIENDS OF WILL

FROM OUR BUDDY WILLS SITE - WE ARE HONORED TO KNOW YOU LACEY FAMILY ,AND WE TAKE OUR HATS OFF TO YOU FOR ALL YOU ARE DOING FOR OUR CHILDREN, YOU ARE INSPIRATIONS. WE ARE SO TOUCHED YOU INCLUDED DEQLANS STORY AND I WAS SO MOVED TO SEE EACH FACE, EACH STORY, A PART OF THESE AMAZING CHILDREN DISPLAYED FOR THE WORLD TO SEE AND LEARN FROM AND REALISE THE COURAGE , HEARTACHE, MIRACLES AND NEED FOR A CURE RIGHT IN FRONT OF OUR EYES.

Here is a slide show from Vicki from Saturday night that she posted on Friends of Will.Each of the tables in the hall honored a child still fighting NB, in NED status, or sadly who have lost their battle. Many of these children may be familiar to you as you may have visited links to their sites from Will's page in the past. There were balloons with a picture of each child on them, then their table had a few photos of that child, a few of their favorite items, and a brief synopsis of their history. It was very moving to me as I walked around the hall and would catch a glimpse of the smiling face of Lucas, or Max, or Katie as I was greeting friends and strangers alike all in united effort to help save kids lives.

Our precious and adorable warrior, Deqlan Ross,

The story of your blessed miracle continues to inspire and motivate people all around the world and especially in USA ! Your journey and so much of your unique personality have been courageously demonstrated and truly captured by the photos and display items which were chosen for your very own celebration table at the recent "Friends of Will" function held in USA. How we LOVE to see that smile on your face and we can almost hear your laughter itself looking at the photos. And of course, theeir choice of Thomas the Tank Engine was so very YOU ..... he is just your biggest "favourite" at the moment; all that was missing was a video clip of you doing the "Chugga Chugga" dance to the music of Thomas and his friends.

Our precious Samm, Mark, Deqlan and Logan, this inclusion is EVIDENCE of the enormous and powerful impact of your love,faith, hope, trust, dedication, devotion and of your extraordinary experiences on so many many people, bloggers, parents, families and fellow warriors all over the world.

It is in so much unconditional love and with great pride that we salute and honour you for all the lessons you have taught us, all the inspiration you continue to enthuse in us and for all the exceptional ways you handle and overcome any challenge or obstacle in your paths. May God continue to bless, light, rule, guard and guide you all the days of your lives and may His promises forever sustain your every physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual need.

All our love,

Nanna and Grandpa
