Miles


For about six months now, I have been reading a blog written by Miles Levin, an 18-year old from Michigan battling rhabdomyosarcoma for the past 26 months. His blog is an amazing chronicle of a boy growing up facing the harshest of life's circumstances. Yesterday morning, Miles died. Click here for a link to a story on cnn.com about Miles. To read Miles' blog, go to CarePages. You'll have to register (it's free) and then in the page search field type "LevinStory".

In announcing his death Sunday afternoon, his family wrote:"Miles went from a boy-man to a man-boy. At a cost that would knock your socks off, Miles still managed to pack a wallop. He could not and would not be held back ... from living life to the fullest."

And this is from one of Miles' last posts, on August 3: "It's a stupid system, but the the only way to fully understand what you have is by losing it. Therefore, luckily for me, I'll probably never know how blessed I am to be enveloped in the sort of love my family provides, especially now. I can only try to imagine how much scarier this would be without them."

good afternoon fellas. I'm really into shoes and I had been searching allowing for regarding that exact model. The prices as regards the sneakers were approximately 340 bucks on every page. But finally I bring about this location selling them for half price. I really like those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will probably order these. what can you say about it?

hello ppl. I'm honestly into shoes and I have been searching allowing for regarding that exact model. The prices due to the fact that the boots were approximately 200 bucks on every site. But definitively I bring about this site selling them for the benefit of half price. I really like those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely purchase those. what can you say about it?
