This was my beautiful wife this past January getting ready to go in to take her exam for Chief Petty Officer. She was in between chemo rounds, and fighting fatigue, chemo sickness and chemo brain. When she got home and I asked her how she did, she said “I prayed my way through the exam so it’s all in God’s hands.” Today, the Navy publicly released the advancement results for Chief Petty Officer and she was selected! For those of you that don’t know, being selected for Chief is a huge milestone in her career. I am SO proud of her! This year has been a tough one on her, but she never stopped fighting. She always relied on her faith. She never gave up. She is a true FIGHTER. Congratulations, Chief Select. I’m proud of you and I love you! ♥️

"This is my son's friend Jared.

Before I hear any wise cracks. Jared has been fighting lung cancer and we almost lost him. He was recently cleared to workout. Today his arm measured 8 1/4 inches and his legs just over 12". and he's at ZERO % body fat. I'm taking him under my wing. Stay tuned for Jared's progress.

Jared and his friends at Body Alive are forever grateful for the support from all of you. Keep the kind words coming, it means a lot."

In total, 9 people died from Va**ng and suddenly the nation is in uproar. Yet every single DAY 7 kids die from pediatric cancer and it’s still not considered a national priority. September is coming to an end but these kids fight 365 days a year. This here is something worth being passionate about too!

The angels must be so excited to meet him. I’m frantically trying to remember every smell and every word he says. Time will never be enough.

I have so much I want to shout to the world today.

Sit beside those who are in pain. Don’t run from God. Hug the hurting when you don’t know what to say. Be okay with pain - it means you love deeply. Don’t just punish and parent. Be their best friend. Love them so deeply your heart beats with theirs. Call the foster mama, the mama whose child is running away from God, the bereaved mama...6 months ago or 10 years ago, the pain is tremendous. Say their name. Everyone else forgetting a child who has been torn from your arms is a pain worse than death.

I wish I was going with you, Lincoln. I’ll never be the same person here on earth. Your faith has changed my life forever. The picture from the Other Side is stunning, that’s what a friend told me she saw this morning.

Well done, boys. 💙💙💗💙💙 Well done.

Well done, boys. 💙💙💗💙💙 Well done.

"Two weeks ago, my 90-year-old mother, Catherine Ritchie, was preparing herself for bed at around 9pm. After brushing her teeth and hair, she turned around to find her bed completely engulfed in flames. She made an attempt to extinguish the flames herself by throwing blankets and pillows on the fire. The smoke and heat were so overwhelming that she immediately got disoriented, gave up fighting the fire, and decided to flee. She pushed the emergency call button she wears on her necklace, called 911, and attempted to get out of her now engulfed bedroom. She walked into the closet several times thinking it was the door that leads to the hallway. It wasn’t. She couldn’t find her way out. She was stuck. Smoke everywhere.

Across the street, 4 boys saw the smoke and reflection of flames. Not an adult in sight. 4 kids who took immediate action to save an elderly woman who they couldn’t guarantee was home and who 3 of them had never even met. One started breaking the glass on the front door. One called 911. One went to the back door and began kicking it in. One went to the neighbors for an ax and help. Within minutes, a door was kicked in by a 14-year-old child who found my mother in the hallway outside of her bedroom and picked her up in his arms. Kids who are told about all the things they aren’t old enough to do saved the life of the most precious and beloved woman we know. Courageous young men. Young men who risked their own lives, their own safety, perhaps their good standing with their parents who might have chosen for them to do otherwise, and they carried my mother out of her burning home into the street, where firetrucks and ambulances would soon arrive.

Dylan Wick – 16 years old, Nick Byrd – 14 years old, Seth Byrd – 16 years old, and Wyatt Hall – 17 years old, thank you! Thank you for your selfless acts of heroism and courage. Thank you for not allowing this to be the tragic end to our mother’s amazing life. Thank you for staying with her, hugging her, and helping her feel less alone until we could get to her. Thank you for being the kind of young men who thought about another person above yourselves. Thank you for staying safe yourselves as well. Thank you to your parents who obviously raised you in such a way that lead to you making life saving and heroic decisions on behalf of someone else. Thank you for more than we know how to thank you for! We will forever be indebted to the time you bought for us and the example you set for us. God Bless each of you for being such a blessing to us.

Sincerely,

Michael Ritchie, Karen Ritchie Sontag, Pat Ritchie, Jimmy Ritchie, Kelly Ritchie, John Ritchie, Tim Ritchie, Tom Ritchie, Missy Ritchie Nicholas, Ryan Ritchie, and 42 very grateful grandchildren."

These are all children who shared a Hem/Onc unit at the exact same time. Two-fifths of these children are now gone. That's a Childhood Cancer Awareness month fact from our very own state of Arkansas. The two that are not with us anymore died from rare very underfunded, under researched forms of Childhood Cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma and Ewing's Sarcoma.

That's why The Brooklyn Project Foundation was formed, to benefit the Innovative Therapies Program at Arkansas Children's Hospital. The ITP brings research and clinical trials to ACH so that more children can stay closer to home when all other standard therapies have been exhausted. Both Abby and Asher were part of those trials. Please consider donating to The Brooklyn Project Foundation during Childhood Cancer Awareness month of September.

Now accepting Venmo. Look it up under [email protected] or Brooklyn Project with a space in between Brooklyn and Project. Thank you for your consideration.

"So, we go to Walmart today and Lakken happens to see an elderly man that was having a hard time shopping and finding things, due to him not being able to lift his head up and see straight. He can only see the ground and barely the sides of him, so Lakken looks at me and goes, 'Aunt Ry, can I please help him?' I of course said 'YES'.

He went up to the man and asked him if he would like some help! His eyes lit up and he said, 'Well yes that would be amazing young man! Thank you so much.'

Lakken was running all over the place for this man. The man was so happy - he told us that he hasn’t had anyone offer help in years.

Lakken went and helped him check out and bag his stuff and had the store call the bus for his ride home. The man tried to tip Lakken and Lakken said, 'Oh thank you, but I don’t need this. I enjoyed helping you.'

I’m beyond proud of Lakken, you don’t see or get many people...let alone children, who do these things for people."

“Tonight, on my flight from Indianapolis to Baltimore I sat next to an unaccompanied minor who was traveling to Baltimore to see her Mother. With Southwest Airlines open seating anyone could have sat next to her, in fact many people avoided her and her boundless energy during boarding. But finally, the couple you see in the photo occupied the two seats to her right.

Within minutes the young girl began chatting and the couple likely realized this wouldn’t be a relaxing flight...and they just rolled with it.

As drinks were being served the couple didn’t even get a chance to voice their requests because they were cut off by the young girl stating, ‘I’ll take water with a straw and so will they so we can paint!’.

And they just rolled with it.

Within minutes the young girl had brought out her Hello Kitty paint sheets and the couple spent the next hour following her instructions- as you can see.

As I type this the man next to her is being covered with Marvel stickers. They are on his ears, in his beard, arms, everywhere. And he is just rolling with it.

Moral of the story: There is good in this world. In fact, there is more good than bad in this world if we just open our eyes to it. There isn’t a script or instruction manual for love. You just have to roll with it.”

Following our post this morning in honor of #MAFAmbassador Cooper's birthday, we received a note that Cooper's friends also left messages of love and support on his memorial bench at Sloan's Lake today. ❤

Cooper passed away from #kidscancer on May 9, 2017, less than a month shy of his 13th birthday. Since then, his friends and classmates have grown, celebrated birthdays and holidays, and moved on to high school...yet, they still feel and acknowledge the pain of losing their friend.

This shouldn't be happening. We MUST #curekidscancer. Please support research to find better treatments. It's the only way to put an end to this.

After tons of itching and hair constantly falling in his eyes...it’s done. Head shaved. It’s bittersweet. Sad that he had to lose his hair, but he has the best round head and a heart shaped birthmark on the top that I love.

This isn’t the view I had planned for Easter. (Part of me wonders why I try to plan anything in the first place. After 7 months of living here, you’d think I would have learned that by now.) First of all, Grant is here! ❤️ I hadn’t planned on that at all and it’s been a huge blessing. I’m so thankful for Grant’s coworkers for being so supportive and understanding the importance of family. Thank you, AGFC. Secondly (the reason Grant is here), Wallace is very sick. He has been very cranky, hard to soothe, and not on top of his game with his breathing since his last dilation. But Friday, he really took a nose dive so he was taken to the OR on Saturday morning with ENT. They did dilate his airway but we feel that his issues were mainly caused by illness. We ran some tests earlier that day and found out he has an enterovirus as well as a bacterial infection deep in his airway. Because he had been in so much distress and we think it’s just the beginning of this awfulness, Wallace was intubated yesterday and put on 2 antibiotics. As much as it breaks my heart to see him like this (back on heavy narcotic drips, restrained to the bed or medically paralyzed, feeds back to continuous, etc.), and knowing I can’t hold my own baby, I can take comfort knowing that he will get more rest this way while his body tries to fight this off. He deserves rest. He deserves the stars and the moon if you ask this momma, but for now... he’s getting rest. After all, today is just another holiday in the hospital for us. 😔

Don’t get me wrong. We couldn’t be more thankful for today and what it represents. Our number one gift is the salvation that we have been offered (and accepted) because of what happened on “this day” thousands of years ago. Christ HAS risen from the grave and death HAS lost its sting. While today is a little more hopeful, I want to be honest with you all and say that Good Friday was quite hard on me. All I could think about was how hard it has been (and continues to be) to watch Wallace suffer... genuinely struggle for his life at times... over and over and over again. And then I thought how much harder it must have been for God to watch His only Son be beaten, tortured, teased, spat on, and brutally murdered on that same day FOR ME. My heart has been absolutely broken. So when you’re all out at church in matching outfits taking your pictures, singing “Up from the Grave He Arose” and “He Lives,” eating lunch together with your family, hunting Easter eggs with your children, please remember us. Remember all the families who are watching their children struggle and say a quick prayer for us. And thank The One who paid the ultimate price so that we may all live with Him in heaven one day. What a day that will be.

Happy Easter, friends. ✝️
