My Versatile Blogger Award!

I have been honored with an award nomination from Grateful Mama. It is the Versatile Blogger Award! The rules of accepting this award are to share 7 things about myself and to nominate 7 deserving bloggers. So let me see what I can think of to share.



  1. I am a music composer and have an aspiration of writing a Broadway style musical which profits would be contributed for research of Fanconi Anemia (my son’s rare disease), Cancer & other rare diseases.  My initial concept has the show titled “Cure” the musical experience.
  2. I have sang on stage at the Metropolitan Opera House. There was thankfully no audience as it was during a backstage tour. As we walked across the stage I stopped in the center and belted a few bars. The guide said no one had ever done that before. Always glad to be the first! Everyone laughed.
  3. My 2 year old son inspires me everyday with his fight and will to survive.
  4. I Love Walt Disney World, I proposed to my wife in front of Cinderella’s Castle, we honeymooned there, & our son’s name is inspired by Walt.
  5. I am a runner, my goal is to run the Walt Disney World Marathon in honor of my son.
  6. My outlook on life and values have dramatically changed in the past two years.
  7. While my life is now full of struggles and challenges (mentally, medically, financially) I still feel that my life is rich and full of purpose.

I am not certain that I really am worthy of this award, but I am honored to be given this. I do have the following 7 blogs to nominate that I feel are very worthy. These blog writers are very inspirational and passionate about the subjects the write about. They always give me great ideas and sometimes the extra push I need to take a step. I hope everyone will take some time to read these. You will likely find a new favorite blog. To the winners I selected, thank you for what you do and how you help me.

  • TherExtras is a therapist with great experience and suggestions for parents of children with special and medically complex needs.
  • HauteSingleMama has an amazing & inspirational story
  • ParkerMama is a very strong advocate for her child
  • Sneakpeekatme always has something witty and positive
  • Kadiera another trach mom I can relate with very well
  • DanaSearsFam is a hoot! sassy & witty which I suspect how she stays sane with a medically fragile child, and a ridiculous medical system
  • wavetree another now former (hurray!) trach dad who obviously cares a great deal for his daughter.

While there are others that i read that are deserving as well, these stand out to me. I hope each of them will accept this award as well I hope you find a new favorite. Happy Blogging!
