Hi Gina!

As promised here are a couple of pics of Camden Lynn and the Cord Blood that was collected.  In the end we didn't get the media coverage we had hoped for and that was a bit disappointing but trust me...there was a lot of education provided to staff and visitors courtesy of the Webb Family and all seemed really impressed with how easy the collection process was and nearly all were completely unaware of the opportunity to make a public donation.  As for the donation process and shipment...easy, peasy...and we could not have been "Congratulated" or thanked for Camden's donation more by the representatives at Cryobanks, they were wonderful to work with!

We as parents could not be prouder...a beautiful baby girl for us and heartfelt prayers that the joy and love her arrival has brought into our lives will also bring hope to a family in need.  It's truly overwhelming to contemplate what this simple "gift" could mean to someone desperate for one more day to live, to love, to dream and to fight!

Wouldn't have known about this amazing opportunity to save a life without you and your amazing boy...thank you, thank you, thank you!

Much Love From Iowa,

Hi Gina :)

I know it's been a long time since you've heard from me, but just wanted you to know that you & your family are still and forever present in my heart. I continue reading your CB journal every time you post, and have also done my part in Evan's honor by giving blood & getting swabbed. 

 I also wanted you to know that James had to do a report for English on someone in his life that has passed on and he chose to do the report on Evan. He also had to do an "altar" in memory of this person (made in a shoebox). I'm attaching a copy of the report and a picture of the altar he created (front & back). When reading his report, I was intrigued by the things he remembered, like Evan's voice & hair :) For the "altar", James said he "put the big pic of Evan in the middle of the water, because that's where he is". Anyway, just wanted to share this 6th grade boy's memory of your precious Evan who will continue to be with us forever. Hope you like it.

Much love,

Kelly P
