1/2 Way 5K

Some great friends of ours are putting together a 5K in honor of James and him being halfway through treatment. Below is the flyer....

'Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.' James 1:2-4

JAMES GREGORY RYAN II IS OUR PRECIOUS BLONDE HAIRED, BLUE EYED, LITTLE MAN FULL OF LOVE, SMILES AND LAUGHTER. JAMES WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LEUKEMIA ON JULY 12, 2007 AT THE AGE OF 13 MONTHS. OUR JOURNEY WITH HIM THROUGH THIS TRIAL BEGAN 19 MONTHS AGO AND WILL CONTINUE FOR 19 MORE. HE HAS ENDURED FREQUENT NEEDLE STICKS, CONSTANT CHEMO, MULTIPLE HOSPITAL STAYS, AND HAS MANAGED TO FLASH A SMILE THROUGH IT ALL. HE IS AN INSPIRATION AND OUR HERO. MUCH LOVE AND GRATITUDE TO ALL.
