Yesterday, Carin gave us another gift: she wrote about "Because of Katie" on her blog. Please take a few moments to go over and read what she has to say, check out their foundation's website, learn about Ben's life and what he has inspired. Ben's legacy is a beautiful one. I would rather he were here, doing what little boys should be doing, but since I can't have that, I admire what he has inspired. Ben's life, and the tragedy of his passing, are fueling change in the way that cancer will be treated. I am thankful that we are friends of the passionate, loving, hilarious, talented couple who are Ben's and Ryan's parents. They are taking their pain and using the energy to make something GOOD happen.
