      Hello James.

      I know it is already Sunday morning there in Australia, and I do not know if you will be able to come to the board today, so I just wanted to say that I will say a special toast for you and your son Michael.

      As a parent, I also wanted to thank you for all you have done here both during and after, as yours was an event that no parent should have to endure, and for finding the strength to still stay on the board. I can't even begin to imagine how I would respond if it were to happen to me and my family.

                  As soon as I posted about my son, who is about the same age as Michael was while fighting melanoma, James reached out with words of encouragement and advice. I will never forget that, thanks James.

                      Michael,

                       

                      Thanks for this post.  James is an incredible guy and I am so thankful that he still comes here and contributes to help others in their battles.  I do not know if I would ever return if I lost a child to this awful disease.

                       

                      Thank you, James.  You did all that you could for Michael and I hope you know and believe that.  I hope your days are happier as time passes by.

                       

                      Stay Strong
