    Lorraine provides us with the absolutely perfect model. (No, I am not saying she is perfect- I don’t know her. But, her concept is one that should inspire all.) Instead of wallowing in grief and blaming the world (or the Creator), she elected to use the energy of grief to make the world a better place for those going through the same trials and tribulations as her child.
    My hat would be off to you- but, it’s not quite baseball season yet, so I have not yet so donned.
    But, I truly commend you, Lorraine- and for the example you provide me and many others.

    Agree with Roy about Lorraine. What positive action can you take to move forward with your life during and after tragedy.
    The line that really touched me though was “During his illness, he never failed to say “thank you” to those around him no matter how sick he was, be it family or friends visiting, or a random stranger who held the elevator door open for him.”
    This was a lovely boy who knew that gratitude in the face of trauma helps everyone

    Tambre, you bring so many amazing people to the forefront with your interviews!

    What a wonderful story of a family who carry on living from love despite such heartbreak.

    Lorraine is really inspiring with her abilty to find supportive people to surround herself with and to ignore those who said it ‘can’t be done’.

    Blessings to every one involved in such a compassionate undertaking.

    Thank you for sharing Lorraine’s story, Tambre. I think it is a wonderful idea to give these young cancer patients laptops, iPads, etc.
    God bless Lorraine for the good work she is doing.
