If you could spare a thought…

This past April, Jessica told us the story of a little boy named Dillon who badly needs our prayers. Dillon is the son of a Staff Sergeant in the Air Force. Like Dillon’s mother, there is another military spouse out there (and probably many more) who has dreaded the scans and medical news of her child.

You see, a young Coastie kid on the West Coast by the name of Hadley Fox has been battling cancer for four years now. Little Hadley has undergone so much in her young life and it’s truly heartbreaking, but she has the most beautiful spirit and keeps smiling despite it all. Recently, the Fox Family was informed by the doctors that Hadley’s condition is now terminal.

Hadley’s father serves in the US Coast Guard and the family is currently wrapping up a PCS. Can you believe it? Just going about your daily routine and dealing with a PCS can be unnerving, but you smack something horrific on top of this lifestyle like pediatric cancer and it’s unimaginable.

A good friend of mine recently posted about Hadley and her strength and that of her family on a Coast Guard blog. If you’d like to read it, please do. Folks have put together a fund for Hadley’s Magic Days, which I think is just wonderful. The post is called: Do you believe in Magic? Also, if you want to read about Hadley’s diagnosis and her treatment to date, you can visit her family’s Caring Bridge site at: http://www.caringbridge.org/ca/hadleyfox/

Please keep Hadley and the Fox family in your prayers if you can. Thanks for reading.

  6. I just found this blog entry looking for a news article on my sweet daughter, Hadley. I’d like to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. Our sweet girl had a wonderful summer. Then in September Make-A-Wish came and gave her the most magical 8th birthday party ever. Our sweet girl left this world on December 12th, 2008. She was the most joyful person I have ever known, my biggest hero, my only daughter.

    Thank you for the prayers of comfort and support for she and our family.
