Alec had a pretty special moment last week thanks to Sherry Cain. Sherry set up a visit with City of Anaheim Fire Chief Randy Bruegman. Mr Bruegman and a few other fireman came over to the house to meet Alec and wish him success on his upcoming trip to Switzerland for Stem Cell Treatment a week from today. They gave Alec a City of Anaheim Fire Department Coin that all the Firemen carry for solidarity and Brotherhood. They also presented Alec with his own City of Anaheim Fire Helmet with his name on it which is now up and displayed in his room. So very gracious for these Firemen to take their time out of their busy schedules to visit with Alec. The local Fire Station was also coming but unfortunately got called away on an emergency. Alec was looking forward to seeing them again to thank them for the time a few months back we had to have them respond to the house for Alec. Sherry Cain you rock for all you do for our family - God bless you.

STEM CELL TREATMENT
Update for what we have been able to put together for Alec.

On July 7th Alec will depart on his most courageous journey of his life time. This journey will take him to Switzerland so Alec can get his first treatment of Stem Cell. On July 10th the Doctors will perform the actual Stem Cell Procedure which involves extracting some of his bone marrow, processing the bone marrow and creating his own stem cells in their labs and placing the Stem Cells back into his Spinal Cord. They will have to extract the same amount of spinal cord fluid from his spine as they will be inserting new Stem Cells. Their hope is the Stem Cells will move back up his spinal cord repairing or replacing Alec's damaged areas from the accident. This is not a fix all but rather an opportunity for some areas of his body / spinal cord to repair and heal. There will be alot of intense rehab and therapy in the coming months to encourage these cells to repair, create new paths and heal. There are no guarantees that anything will improve only our faith that it will. Alec continues to remain strong mentally and physically considering his circumstances. This trip will be difficult but we are blessed to be able to go as a family and bring Alec's best friend Matt along to help and experience this journey with Alec. We see the continued improvement in Alec no matter how small it is. This treatment can only help what Alec's body is doing on its own.

For everyone who has participated in any of the GOLDMANSTRONG Fundraisers this is all possible because of you. Each and every one of you know who you are and Our Family thanks you each and everyday. The ways and means of how all of you have supported Alec along this journey is amazing experience to be a part of. The monies we have been able to raise will go a long way towards funding this 1st trip and treatment. To ask all of you for anything else is hard, but if everyone could just say an extra prayer that God looks over Alec on this journey and allow him the chance to make some form of recovery. All of your Prayers and Support have helped us during the 6 months we spent in the hospitals and over the past year having Alec home. I know with your support and prayers anything is possible.

Alec, for Mom, Kylie and myself you know we love you so very much son. I know the feelings are the same for all your Aunts, Uncles, Grand Parents, family and friends. Son, may this journey open up a chance for recovery. May it give you an opportunity to make another step forward in your recovery. May it inspire you to fight for that chance to go after your dreams again. Give you reasons to set new goals. Believe in all the possibilities. Never settle. Never let anyone or anything hold you down. You have shown us all how to be strong. You have made us all better people simply by knowing you. God bless you son.

GOLDMANSTRONG!
