A blog about the grief after losing a child to Niemann Pick, Type C, a rare disease, and how I'm moving forward with my life.

Can you imagine?

I'm guessing that most of you have lost someone close to you. Whether it was a parent or a close friend.

I don't know how many of you have lost a child.

It is hard to imagine if you haven't experienced it. Now try imagining losing 3 children.

Unfortunately for one family, that is the reality. Three of their four children are NPC angels.

The Smith family created the Smith Family BReaK Thru Fund in honor (now memory) of their 3 children fighting NPC - Brandon, Riley and Keaton.  Over the weekend, they said goodbye to Keaton.

The Smith family had a close relationship with Coach Matt Painter at Purdue University.  Coach Painter won the Infiniti Coach's Challenge this year, and just  last week picked up the big check.

Please keep the family in your thoughts this week.
