Conversation with Jack

Yesterday while we were driving to radiation Jackson asked me this question out of the blue:

"Mom, do you know what's great about having cancer?"

Wow. Hearing that question hit me pretty hard. What in the world could he possibly think was "great" about having cancer?"

His reply surprised me.

"We never would have met all of these amazing people if I never had cancer."

He teaches me something new every day- and he's right.


  1. Wow. That put a huge lump in my throat and brought tears to my eyes. You have definitely got one amazing little man! You're my hero Jack♥! Keep being the brave, strong, tough guy that you are!

  2. Love that boy and his outlook! I guess I always say I love him and your family but there are no other words for the way I feel when I read his blog

  3. Now that is a moment to cherish! What maturity coming from someone so small. Jackson, you are amazing!!


Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
