Dear Lamont and Sheila,
On the way home from the Warrior game last night, little Haley says from the back seat, "that was my best day ever, I went to a basketball game....and I'm only 6". After the complications Shawn suffered after his heart transplant...to see him down there as honorary captain was the most beautiful experience for this mom.
I can't express how grateful I am for last night, for you care and concern over Shawn...and the love you expressed to all of us. It was the best experience.....we will never forget it.
Shawn loved it more than he even thought he would...he still has stars in his eyes....and thinks Sheila hung the stars and moon because she was into the video games! We will think of you all often & keep you in our prayers.
Thank you again for giving Shawn a once in a lifetime experience....after so many months in the hospital.
Trista, Shawn, Haley....and the rest of those Stockwell's :)
On August 15, 2008 when we were in the clinic at Stanford-Lucile Packard Children's Hospital we were pleasantly surprised with tickets from your fund. My daughter really enjoyed the circus on August 16 and it was the first experience from my two little boys.
We have been undergoing treatment for a year now with little effect. Thank you for the wonderful day to take our mind off her illness and enjoy being a kid again.
Thank you so much. Our son Tomas was just diagnosed with ALL Leukemia about a month ago. When he was diagnosed it felt like our lives would never be normal again; and that for his birthday, August 16th, we would end up spending it at home or in a hospital, instead of the way we would have liked, with an outing and a huge party. Thanks to your foundation, we spent his birthday at the circus. This experience was not only something that provided Tomas with great joy, but also helped us, his parents, to see that he could be a normal kid. The experience brought tears to my eyes. We can't begin to tell you how much that day meant to us all. Thank you so very much.
Diego, Jenny, and Tomas
We first want to say, we are very sorry for your lose. It's very sad that our little guys have to go through this stuff. Our Son Matthew, is fighting brain cancer right now and we understand a little of what you went through. We want to thank you for the 49er tickets, we received from Stanford-Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. Our little guy is at Stanford now, getting his 5th round of chemo. We had a great time at the game. It was Matthew, his brother Michael, Matthew's friend Adrian and Matthew's Dad.
I hope you guys find time to reflect on all the good memories you have of Nicholas, it's one of things that can never be taken from us. Thanks for all you guys do, for others like us.
