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.

Matthew's Reflections Project

Just wanted to make a quick post. This past month we have been working with the kids on their reflections projects. We are thankful for a brother in law we obtained a drone from to do the filming.  The theme this year is "the world would be a better place if..." Matthew thought the world would be a better place if we took more time to go outside and play. This is the result. It was really fun to do. Matthew directed, and also piloted some of the footage. Lisy and I piloted too.
