    to you and your family . . . i'm very sorry for your son's diagnosis, and concerned about your daughter, but glad you are here with us today.  

    those wagonloads of toys will delight children who aren't up to going outdoors.

      Armand has been a huge beneficiary of Child Life's toy program at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital -- the fact that he gets to rummage through a treasure chest and take a toy home after every checkup has done much to relieve any concerns he may have developed about going to the oncology clinic. And of course the entire program was a huge blessing during those times he was in-hospital for weeks on end. I think we could deliver a wagon a year for years to come before we end up delivering an amount equivalent to what he's received! So it's our little way of paying back and saying thanks :).
