Ethan's birthday!

If you or anyone you know will be in Omaha, Nebraska or Council Bluffs, Iowa tomorrow night, please come celebrate Ethan's birthday with his family at Thunderbowl!

As loyal readers here may remember, Ethan was an incredible little boy who was diagnosed in May 1999 and survived for years with the same kind of brain cancer that Kyrie had thanks to the diligence and love from his mom, Marcy, dad, Tracy, and sister, Asia. In fact, when he was first diagnosed many years ago before there was any sort of direction for PNET protocol, one of the treatments resulted in Ethan fighting leukemia as well as PNET. Easy to understand why he quickly earned the nickname "Superboy."

Ethan loved the Iowa Hawkeyes and baseball and video games and miraculously celebrated his 14th birthday this time last year. However, after hundreds of tough days and miraculous moments, after millions of prayers from family & friends, in March of this year, the angels came to take Ethan home.

Tomorrow night on Ethan's 15th birthday, his family is inviting you to celebrate God's gift of Ethan, and we're asking you to honor the incredible courage of his family who are continuing his fight with this fundraiser.
