Our New Hero Mike

Last night we got together with some other cancer buddies and friends to make posters for our new hero Mike.  He starts his run across Idaho TOMORROW!!  I am in complete awe of what he is doing to help our local cancer kiddos through the Tenley Foundation. Meet Tenley and Mike:
Yes, you heard me right, Mike is running ACROSS the STATE of Idaho in 9 days.  That's about 50 miles a day for 9 days straight.  Tenley is our friend who has a brain tumor, there is foundation set up in her name to help local kids battling cancer. 
You can see more about Mike and follow him while he runs on facebook under 'Mike's Extra Mile' and at www.mikesextramile.blogspot.com.  We would love it if you can spread the word about what this amazing guy is doing for us. 
 Funny faces! 
 Ty is feeling great! He is on such a low dose of chemo that we haven't really noticed any side effects right now.  He hates the fact that he can't eat 1 hour before and 1 hour after he has taken his antifungals and chemo.  He has a giant stash of fruit snacks under his pillow on his bed...we might be creating a food hoarder ha! 
But really other than being careful about sun exposure because of the voriconazole he is a normal kid right now.  I don't know what his blood counts are right now, he will get a CBC tonight.
 Tenley and her friend, Tyson, and Cooper...Cooper doesn't like posing for pictures which is why he wasn't in the ones we took with Mike.  Ty had so much fun at Cooper's house that he asked if he could go to Cooper's first thing this morning. : )  We all had fun!  It is great to get together with people who understand on a personal level what it is like to deal with cancer. 
Mike is a cancer survivor too!
 We are selling Mike's Extra Mile T-shirts for $15.00 a piece.  If you would like one let me know!!
Thank you in advance for spreading the word about Mike!  Feel free to share the link to his blog on facebook and tell your family and friends!  Thank You Thank You Thank You!!
