It is with great sadness that I inform you Amanda lost her battle with Neuroblastoma this afternoon at the age of 15. Please pray for her family at this very difficult time, and especially for her very brave and courageous mom Vicki.
The loss of Amanda has affected me deeply, as she was the first child that has died of Neuroblastoma, that I have met, since we have been in New York. There is a very sad look on many of the parents here at RMH this evening, not only have we lost a friend but it is also a realization of the fear, we as parents, are all living.
