Make a Wish

Liam Lowe
Today, Amy Lowe will mark the day she was born by sending both of the children born to her into separate operating rooms: her 3-year-old daughter, Mary, whose bone marrow doctors will harvest; and her 6-year-old boy, Liam, who will reap that harvest.

Liam has spent his last four months in a life-and-death battle with leukemia and the last four days having his little body profusely and purposely poisoned in preparation for today's transplant.

I've lit a candle in my office, closed my eyes and made three wishes: one for Liam, one for Mary and one for Amy and her husband, Matt. And I'm praying that on this day of all days, Amy can have her cake and eat it, too.
