A Huge Thank You Chai Lifeline

Over the past few months, Chai Lifeline has done quite a few things for us.

First they designed a shutterfly book for Ian, covering his 3 years of Camp Simcha Special. There were pictures I had not seen over the years, something we will have forever to cherish the memories he has had at camp.

Ian going through the Welcome Tunnel his 1st year of camp.

Ian having fun.....well maybe.

Ian, with some of the guys and medical staff, getting ready to go for a swim....he looks thrilled...but when all was said and done had a great time. And even went in a 2nd time.

After a few months of planning, about 3 weeks ago, Brian and I got a wonderful night away at the Gramercy Mansion. Adena arranged everything, even care for Ian, Danny came into town to watch him. It was a quiet night of watching movies without worrying about the kids and who was taking care of them. We knew they were in good hands. Entertainment was provided for Ian, just for him, oh we know how he loved that. Becca had a great time at a friends sleepover party or she would have been home with Chai Lifeline as well.

Hanukkah has come and gone, hard to believe another year has past. But not without the wonderful Chai Lifeline Hanukkah Party. All the Baltimore and DC families were invited to the World Trade Center in Baltimore for some dancing, arts and crafts and goodies. Unfortunately, Ian was not feeling well that day so he stayed home with Brian and Becca and I went. Each family got a bag full of gifts which were picked out just for them. Governor Larry Hogan was there to help all of us celebrate. Becca and I even got on the dance floor for a little bit. 

Oh how we love our chai lifeline family. Thank you for all you do.
