As I was scrolling through my Facebook feed yesterday I realized that for a few families it is very bittersweet.
Sweet Damon Cardinal was born on 12/25/2006 in Canada. The same year as Dan. Damon fought with Niemann-Pick Type A for 15 1/2 months.
Nine years ago, the Heinze family in Michigan said goodbye to their son Tyler who had Niemann-Pick Type C. This family will have to say goodbye to two more daughters.
In 2011, shortly after Dan died, sweet Calum Burdon in England lost his fight with Niemann-Pick Type C.
Please keep these families in your thoughts. The holiday season will never be the same for them.
