Christian and I (Sarah) are the parents of a 4 yr. old, beautiful, sweet boy named Sven who was diagnosed with Leukemia on 4.19.09. Immediately we started chemotherepy treatment for Sven with the Pediatric Oncology Center @ Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island, NY. I will outline some highs and lows and most of all type some frustrations away :-)

5 years ago I dreamed of the big dream, I had the big important career, the husband with a big important career, a big healthy bank account, a big dream house and big dreams of having all that forever.. living the big life of dreams! Now after 5 years and a cancer diagnosis I dream of the Big DREAM again, a big meaningless part time- keep my mind fresh job, a big decrease in house payments, a big cancer remission and a big move to a little house by the big ocean near Cape Cod watching and laughing big laughs with Sven and Christian. Amazing how things change and dreams change with them. I would not trade a minute of it, when I look at Sven now I know I am living the Big Dream and cannot ask for, dream of, wish for, pray for anything bigger and dreamier than the life I have with our little family!
