    A Different Childhood

    When I was 11, my 9 year old brother was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Things were never quite the same in our family after that. It was an emotional roller coaster at our house. He had re-occurring medical issues for 10 more years and then passed away.

    My Shattered World

    My world has been torned into pieces several times. To describe every time that it broke would just be too painful. Let me just say that it hurted, it hurted a lot, and it still does. One day you are happy, you are an innocent kid that is simply surprised by everyday misteries...
