I would like to place a little thanks to the groups of people that helped my 

Mommy, Daddy, Brother and Lola feel comfortable here while I was in the 

Hospital for such a long time.  So many organizations and Family units 

donated their personal time to help take away some of the fear of the 

unknown, the anxiety that builds up with time.  Its like they take a piece of 

bread from heaven and bake it with comfort and peace and steal away time 

for just a moment and presents peace and joy in such a turbulent time.  

Thanks to each of you.  If you could manage to help them or find a Ronald 

McDonald house in your area, it will be such a joy I promise you to help a 

family or families out or donate your time.

Not only a special thanks to the Ronald McDonald House but also to Fran 

Alvarez whom donates her time as the hair stylist there.  If one thing is true, it 

seems your upkeep gets neglected and she helps bring that small amount of 

pride back into you while your there.  For a wonderful time for the children, 

Raul Gonzalez brings magic to the room with ballons and also does side 

portraits.  He is a fine artist!  Then there is the Petting Animals that comes 

around and for Mommy and Daddy if they could have found the time, there 

was even messages each week offered.  Just a hint, if your there‐‐sign up quick 

for all the events, they go quickly.  Another all time favorite of the families 

there, where a picture can bring that smile to the whole family and magic just 

seems to fill the air.  Virgina Becker who started The Family Album Project 

simply does an outstanding job with the children and families and you can 

hear laughter and playful moments while she is taking snapshots.  Shucks 

even the Oakland Raiders came by to visit me, me in the hospital.  How 

awesome.  Below you will see some of the pictures that happened while my 

family and I was there.  Though I wasnt there very much, I am so thankful that 

they were able to keep my brother happy.
