I was trying to capture the perfect photo for our Christmas card. Every picture I took with various props, just didn't cut it. The lighting was wrong, not everyone was smiling, etc. Then Jack was diagnosed with leukemia and the perfect picture no longer mattered. He was all that mattered. And it turns out, he mattered to so many people, mostly ones we never met. Through Jack's diagnosis and battles, he has touched the lives of hundreds, if not thousands of people. He keeps a smile on his face no matter how many needles he's poked with. He can handle the two years of treatment better than anyone we know. We are so proud he is our son. And it turns out that I got the perfect Christmas photo anyway two weeks after being diagnosed - a big smooch from his sister.
