When my daughter was born she seemed like a perfect little angel but within a few short days she was rushed to the Emergency Room.  Several more ER visits she was eventually admitted to Women and Children's Hospital.  Lacking sleep, proper clothing and even a shower, I lived in fear as most parents do in such circumstances.  During my stay in the hospital, I was changed by seeing the looks on the faces of the parents of sick children on the cancer floor.  It was in their eyes that I suddenly thanked God that, although my baby was sick, she didn't have cancer. I was terrified, but overwhelmingly convinced I wanted to help those who were dealing with this unimaginable journey and the children who were inflicted with this dangerous illness. 



Comforting parents with sincerity, strength and whatever else I could offer was my quest.



My journey of administering medicines, heart monitors and endless doctor visits for my new born was a long one.  In this time I met a wonderful women at book club, we soon became friends and she introduced me to Flashes of Hope.  My friend endured the journey.  She's a pillar of strength, an inspiration for all and with her help and I started my quest.
