Default Zach

My name is Amber, I am new. I have dabbled in the RC Car thing, well actually all I did was drive it with the remote control on an indoor track (races) in Sacramento, CA some 4 years ago.

I have 3 children and am married.

One of my children have Neuroblastoma Cancer, and has been batteling for his live this past year. I have started a NPO, http://www.paccgroup.org because I want to help other families who need support and help. I needed it and still do, but wanted to pay it forward. (Not trying to promote Pacc, just letting you all know about me in short)

Zachary has been in and out of hospials this past year. Idaho, Utah, NY, Virginia doing transplans, Chemo. Radiation, ect. His treatment will continue for who knows how long.

I use to work, not any more, because I just can't with all of the traveling I do for Zachary's treatment.

SO now, I just hang out with my kids and make everyday the best day I can, for the families sake!

ANyhow, if this adoption thing is what I am suppose to do here, then adopt away!

Later!

Heres a question for you all to flame me on? How long is it before I can sponsor someone else? Is there a specific thread count or time line, or a coolness factor I need to reach before being able to do that?

Flame Away!

Hey Jason heres some pics for you for Sunday, I'll get you more as well.

Glad to be here everyone!

Amber

The sad thing is that, that baby looks comfortable with things that most of us will never be around...

Being able to, as Amber put it, pay it forward is what it's all about!

Hey thanks everyone! Zach is STRONG! as you will see in many pics. he is ALWAYS smiling (well most of the time) He doesn't understand all of the doctors and surgeries, chemo. radiation, CBC's blood tests ect. cause its the only thing he truly knows, In fact I feel he thinks it's the normal way of life.

He is full of life and loves to just be himself and have fun. When you say CRAWL, what are you referring to? He loves to get it in my zuki when were out rock crawling, he loves to watch it on TV, and he loves to see all of his buddies gettin it, especially in the competition's. Thats the only crawlin he knows right now!

Also, here are some pics from the womens event of Rock Crawling, this event was for Breast cancer research, every year I would get in the buggy and crawl for a cure (breast cancer) this year, I had to skip[ the event (obviously) and friends of ours, took it upon themselves to raise funds for Zachary, as well as do have some extra fun. I was told I was getting a pkg. in the mail and was scared, really scared... Turns out, I love our gift... I know it doesn't really fit in this thread or site, but it's so special I wanted to share with you all as well... Enjoy! There's a whole story to this...

Have Fun!
