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.

High Altitude Balloon for Hero Blair

Early this morning Tyler launched his high altitude balloon.  There will be many details to come, and more explanations for those who don't know what I'm talking about.  This is a quick update for those who are following it.  The balloon landed near the Utah and Wyoming border.  It's directly east of Coalville.

He is currently less than half a mile away from retrieving it.  He has to cross over some rugged territory to get it.

I will keep you posted.  It did land within a mile or two of a road...dirt road.  At least this is what I have gathered.


p.s. I wanted to show the size of the balloon, unfortunately I'm the one in the picture and not Tyler.  This was his project to honor Blair's bravery.
