The Natalie & Alice Fish Story

We are the Fishes. In 2011 two of our five children; Natalie and Alice were diagnosed with a rare gene disfunction called Leaky SCID (Severe Combined Immune Deficiency). Their condition is so rare that only two cases are reported in the U.S. each year. Both girls have endured much, and have spent most of their young lives in and out of hospitals due to common illnesess a healthy immune system would overcome. The required treatment for our girls is a bone marrow transplant.
Although the new marrow could mean a normal life for them, it will be a long and arduous road. This blog is to share our experience as parents and the courage of our children.

Thank You--Alpine Blood Drive!

I had spoke with Jessica my sister-in-law the other day, she was telling me about the Alpine blood drive. We feel so blessed and loved by many. If only we could thank everyone individually. The blood drive was a great success. Jessica said the only thing that could have been better was the fact that the Red Cross wasn't prepared for the amount of people that came. The coordinator from Red Cross told Jessica that they usually only plan on 30% of the people who sign up to show. Next time they better prepare for 100% :) This goes for all the blood drives that have been in Natalie and Alice's honor!

Thank You Everyone...many many lives will be blessed, including our sweet girls.

Love to all.
