Senior year?!

Four years ago today, we got Luke's final diagnosis of stage 4 high risk alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Today, he started his senior year of high school. Feeling very, very grateful that he gets to start another school year no matter what that school year might look like, yet feeling very mindful of the families whose kids aren't here or aren't well enough to start this school year.

Thank you to all of the teachers, administrators and staff who have worked so hard to adapt. I know that some of you have faced anger and vitriol, when you deserve respect and kindness.
