Michigan Radio: Michigan Cancer Stories

One of Christa's posts from the family blog was included in a feature by Michigan Radio on cancer.  Thanks, Adriann, for suggesting that we submit our story.

Thank You!

Wow!  Christa and I continue to marvel how amazing Chloe's POP turned out.  This morning Pastor Kama described watching the joy on the kids faces as seeing a glimpse of Heaven.  I couldn't agree more.

Thank you to the approximately 250 people who joined us yesterday.  A party isn't a party without the people.  Thanks for the hugs, the conversations, and the well wishes.

Thank you to all of those who baked cupcakes, helped decorate, organized food, worked the kids' activities, and cleaned up.*  We couldn't have done it (the POP) without you.

Thank you to all of you, near and far, who have loved and supported us.  We certainly couldn't have done this (the cancer journey) without you.

* A special thank you goes out to the four people who braved the cotton candy machine.  Thanks for your sacrifice to help keep the kids well stocked.

Chloe's POP (Port Out Party) - A few details

The excitement for Saturday is building around the H-A home!

A few quick details:

Everyone - RSVP or not - is welcome to stop by and join us on Saturday!  We'd love to see you!

Cupcakes can be dropped off in the Third Reformed Church kitchen until 4:00pm on Friday or on Saturday after 1:00pm. (No need to have them there early -- save gas and bring them along with you.)

Also, if you attend Chloe's POP and snap a few photos we'd love it if you'd share them with us.  We haven't asked anyone to take photos so if we could make it a community effort, we'd be appreciative.  You can email them to Kip -  Thanks!
