Ethan Van Leuven and his family live in our neighborhood. Ethan is 4 years old and has leukemia; he’s not expected to live for much longer. So his family, with the help of friends, neighbors and complete strangers, have been celebrating different Holidays with him this week. Tuesday was Halloween, tonight is a birthday celebration for him, tomorrow night is Christmas Eve and Saturday is Christmas.
I was taking Sadie Bugs and Frankie Beans for a walk tonight, not aware that there was a celebration for Ethan going on. But as we got closer to the Church in our neighborhood, I noticed that there was a Parade forming. I had heard something on KSL.com about a little boy with leukemia and celebrations that were being put on for him. This must be that!
So I pulled out my camera and started taking pictures of the Parade.
What an awesome site to see all these people getting together to show their love and support for a little boy. Very cool.
