Happy Memorial Day!

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone has had a fantastic long weekend. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperative for the most part but Angie did see a double rainbow yesterday and it reminded her that its God's promise that everything will be ok. The family went to Bradley's grave and reminisced of the good times they shared!

Angie shared a post on Facebook that I would like to share with you.
"It's been 4 months since you earned your angel wings and not a day goes by that I don't think about you and missing you sooo much! with this was all easier and am so blessed that the day before you passed away you told us you loved us! I cannot wait to see you again! I know you are having the time of your life with Christian and Ehreen... playing like you were meant to! Going to the memorial service and going to your grace. What I wouldn't give to hold you one last time. I miss you and will always fight to keep you journey alive and to help other kids with cancer."

I think we all share Angie's emotion when it comes to talking or even thinking about Bradley. He will forever have a special place in my heart as he will with all of you.

That's it for now. Thank you all who have kept up with his story.

Peace, Love, & Chocolate Milk
RIP Bradley

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

Hope everyone had a fantastic day! This is the first mothers day without our hero Bradley. It was a sad yet special day in the Allen household. Angie received a surprise party from the kids and all of them gave her Precious Moments figurines. Brought tears to her eyes. It was only missing Bradley.

Just wanted to update everyone on the status of Brianna Henness. She is home and doing good. It got very touch and go there for a while but all is well for now.

A reminder about the Cure Search walk this Saturday at Principal Park. Walk starts at 830am if anyone wants to join us. We will be wearing out Bradley's Buddies t-shirts. Also, there will be a pot luck at Sunrise Park in Ankeny immediately following the walk. Everyone is welcome. If you can't make the walk but would like to donate you can go to www.curesearchwalk.org, click Des Moines, and search for Bradley's Buddies Team. Anything is helpful.

That's all for now.

Peace, Love, & Chocolate Milk
Rest in Peace Hero Bradley

May 5, 2013

A lot of things have happened since the last post. Some good, some not so good. The family is all doing pretty well for the most part. Spending as much time as possible with each other and making new memories with one another. Chris is back to work and loving every minute of it. Angie as well. Elijiah and Ashley are in school and keeping mom and dad very busy. Brittney is having some seperation issues at this point. Whenever someone leaves she just cries and cries. She doesnt think they will come back. All of the kids are in counseling to help them with this tramatic experience. Things do seem to be getting a little easier.

Ashley had a birthday yesterday and got everything she wished for. It was a great day.

A family friend of the Allens is back in the hospital for numerous brain tumors. Brianna Henness is a vibrant 17 yr old young women who has been fighting these tumors since she was about 5. At this point, they are benign but she is in an extreme amount of pain. We are asking to keep the Henness family in your thoughts and prayers.

There are a few different events coming up in the very near future. This coming Tuesday May 7, Famous Dave's is hosting a benefit for Cure Seach. They will be donating 10% off all sales from 11am - 10pm to the foundation to raise money to find a cure. Please join us in this wonderful benefit.  Hope to see everyone there!!

Also the Cure Search Walk is upon us. May 18 if anyones wants to join us in that as well. We will be wearing Bradley's Buddies T-shirts. More details to come on that next week.
