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.

The Eagle Has Landed

Yesterday around 9:10 am Tyler's balloon landed nearly 15-20 miles east of Coalville, launch time was 7:52 a.m., total travel time was 78 minutes.  We estimate that it traveled nearly 18 miles up and from the point of launch to the point of landing was approximately between 45-46 miles apart. It was retrieved well enough and the footage is amazing.  Can't wait to put it all together to share with everyone.



  1. So sad we couldn't come! Our Kids would have loved it, can't wait to see the footage!:)

  2. Yeah! So excited to see the video...and I hope Tyler took video of him on the retrieval mission :) Thanks for having us. We loved it and love you guys! We are so inspired by your faith and devotion to family.
