It is so hard to believe this day has come again … it is RAK day. Last year … last January 7th I decided to change Wylder “Diagnosis Day” to a day where we all do a random act of kindness in his honor instead. It really helps to take some of the fear and anxiety away from the day, knowing good deeds are happening in his honor. It really helps to change the focus of the day on how it will help another and how someone new will learn of our most beautiful Warrior. It will certainly always be a day of reflection where I will require an immense amount of down time to reflect on the happenings of January 7, 2010 and how I still dream of waking up from what I am hopeful is/was only a nightmare. But as I think about heading off to dreamland tonight (with hopes of dreams about Wylder) I will look forward to waking up and thinking of who and how I can do a RAK for Wylder TODAY and I hope you all will do the same!
Within just a few days of Wylder’s diagnosis in 2010 we were on a plane to New York Mount Sinai to meet Dr. Melissa Wasserstein and then headed to Duke University in NC. At this point we determined we would leave ‘no stone’ unturned for our littlest and would make FUN out of any and all days/situations.
Please let me know your RAK for the most beautiful, most wonderful WARRIOR Wylder James. Sweet dreams Wylder Nation and thank you. Wylder James, you are missed and you are loved! xoxo
