The owner of Speedy Red

The name of the little bird in my previous posting came from the name a very sick little boy gave his beloved toy car. He passed away today at the age of 7 after a vicious battle with Osteosarcoma. I never knew or met him, but his heart, courage and struggle have touched me deeply as I have learned about his joy for life.

My sister worked with him while he was in the PICU. She states: "Osteosarcoma took his body, but never his heart."

I know any thoughts and/or prayers you send out would be so needed and appreciated by him and his family.
