"I was able to expose my children to the wonder of the outdoors, to carry on our family tradition. I was able to give them meaningful childhood memories. The hardest part of being sick isn’t what you can no longer do for yourself, it’s what you can’t do for other people. I had to live with the guilt that I’d never be able to give my children the things they needed. But now, thanks to you, I can be the kind of a parent that I always wanted to be. I have the ability to give my kids the childhood they deserve, and to feel like a real active father again."
