Ethan Strong

No child should have to have cancer. No parent should ever have to watch their child go through the trials of cancer. But many children and parents have to do just that. I never had the opportunity to meet Ethan in person, but I followed his story. I prayed for him and his parents and brother. Ethan fought an amazing fight. He showed great strength and courage. Today, Ethan doesn’t have to be strong any longer. I believe his pain is gone and cancer is no longer a threat. No, today, his parents, his family, his friends and the strangers like me that came to love him are the ones left behind to carry on his legacy of strength and courage. Ethan’s parents have set up a foundation in Ethan’s name. They are asking others to help by making blankets or by sending blanket making material to them for them to gift to other cancer patients in Ethan’s name.  

 

If you are the parent of a child who has been diagnosed with cancer, watch this video Dr. Cliff James III (Ethan’s pediatrician) made in his honor.
