I searched our doorbell camera tonight and saw that kids had actually been stopping at the indication. T.j. Thomas and I simply went outdoors and found this.
The SOLE purpose of us putting this sign “Sorry, no candy. Kid with cancer. See you next year. Have a good time!” in our yard today was so kids wouldnt go to our door and be disappointed (our community typically gets 300-400 kids).
Thanks To Courtney ThomasI cant stop weeping. , if anybody believed there was no hope in our kids and teens youre wrong.

I have to say that Halloween was so much various for my kids as compared to last year. Our child celebrated Halloween in the oncology center last year and the kids didnt really get to do much considering that their sis couldnt go out. This year she did get to go for a short time and had a blast.
” Kudos to the thoughtful, kind, mild and compassionate kids who shared their candy, however most of ALL congratulations to the moms and dads of those children for teaching them what truly essential in life. Sharing, caring, and love for one another.
” Awe your post has me in tears today. From a fellow cancer mama I comprehend how much this indicates. Prayers for your family and for a total recovery for your cancer hero!”– Jeniffer Denney
