Caden’s Hope Sterling Necklace

Caden's Hope Sterling Necklace

Our friend Ann who produces a beautiful jewelery line, is offering a necklace especially for our son Caden as a way of helping out with his medical costs.

This is an amazingly sweet gesture, and the jewelery is very well designed and made.  I cannot thank Ann enough for her support in this way and the many other ways that she has helped us. 

Thank you Ann!  Click on the above image or go to the page on her website for more information or click here.

Heart Injection – Work in Progress

My wife Shannon and I entered an art show at the Lawrence Art Center Healing Through the Arts. As ironic as it is, the night we were supposed to turn in the work (Friday) our son Caden had a fever and had to be admitted to Children’s Mercy Hospital. Here is a piece that I was working on for the show. Hopefully we will still make it into the show. Below is my Heart Injection carved from cedar wood, that I am working on based on issues surround my son’s Nueroblastoma cancer.
