That's excellent news about getting the appointment!
I saw this quote recently and it makes me think of your fight:
"Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain.”
Keep kicking those pebbles out the way.

Good luck in Texas!!!! Everyone is with you in Texas rooting for you!!!! PHASE 1 collected!!! Lets keep going everyone to get phase 2 collected!! Erics story has touched me so deeply. For any mother, father, family and friends this could be us. To spread the word and donate is so insignificant compared to what you are going through. Eric's battle never leaves my thoughts. I say a prayer for you every night. YOU will fight this!! Tia - you said it best!! Take all the positive energy and love from your friends and family Eric!! To Eric's family - thank you for this web site and keeping us updated it is so much appreciated that we can help in a small way!! Lets all keep praying and donating for Eric!! He so deserves it!! You have touched your friends and their parents so deeply. To see your friends growup and fight for you and collecting donations you have taught them all so much!!! YOU ARE SO LOVED ERIC!! KEEP FIGHTING!!! For all of us keep donating even if we already have - give up what you would spend on coffees a week or a pizza this site proves as a small community without the media what we can do. Its the least we can do to help. Go team Eric!!!!

Though I do not know you, I know your sister, and am touched by your story. Though the days must be extremly difficult for you, it must be a small comfort to have such a devoted, loving and supportive network of family and friends at your side. I continue to keep you in my prayers and hope Tuesday goes well for you. Stay strong!

Dear Eric & Family,
I can't imagine what you are going through, since I am lucky to be healthy, but a few months ago I lost my dad to cancer. I probably shoudn't be writing you this, but I have been touched by your story that I wanted to share my experiences with you. I know how it's like to feel lost and hopeless. I know how it's like to fear to fall asleep at night. I know how it's like to wake up in the morning and the first thing is to go straight to his bedroom and to check.
But I also remember what a wonderful time my dad and me had, even shortly before he died. I really hope for you that you will survive!!!!!
But let me tell you what held my dad, my mom, my brother and me together: we talked and shared, what we wanted to share. We didn't shut ourselves away from each other. It was a blessing. We laughed and cried together.
Every day, my dad was sitting on the roofed balcony, no matter what the was like. And he always said what a wonderful day/morning/evening it was. I wish for you that you can see the beauty in everything. It makes you enjoy life even though it's not easy.
I wish you and your family all the best.
God bless you

Hello everyone. I just wanted to say a very huge and deserving thank you to everyone who has supported this website in any way. Whether it be making a donation, or simply sharing my brother's story with others. It amazes me how many people have come together to help my brother, and I know that my family and I are extremely grateful. We've had an overwhelming response, and we could not do this without all of you! So thank you for your help!
It's difficult to put into words the feelings I'm overcome with when I take a look at the "Thank You" page, and see so many familiar and even unfamiliar names. It's truly reignited a lot of hope within myself, and my family, so thank you all for contributing.
Love you all. xo
