Tom and Amy - the inaugural couple sent to Key West.
Tom and Amy's Story
I found love, and married Amy in 1997. As a military BRAT, I always saw my future as a soldier. Enlisting in the Army a little over a year after high school was what I was always meant to do. Now with a new wife, a baby on the way and a bright future as a solider we were ready to start our life together and we were looking forward to where that life would take us.
After a few months at our first duty location, Fort Carson, CO on 14 November 1997 our son Danny was born. There were massive complications during the delivery, causing him to suffer severe brain damage. Amy and I had to make decisions that no 20 year olds should ever have to make. The delivery left our infant son very sick and with an uncertain future at best. Hospitalized and his life hanging by a thread. CLICK HERE for the rest of their story.

Anthony and Melissa
Anthony and Melissa's Story
(The Annjenette Foundation provided the airfare for Anthony and Melissa's trip)
Son: Taylor Christian
Born: November 18, 2011 Died: May 1, 2018
Taylor was born on November 18, 2011 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, weighing 5 Ibs 5 oz and 18 inches long. He was the perfect little addition to Melissa and Roger's (Dada's) marriage. He grew rapidly, reaching milestones fairly early and slowly grew into a goofy, silly, fun and caring little boy. Taylor fell ill and there were no answers for 3 months. After 3 hospitals, two spinal surgeries, two medical helicopter flights, lots of physical therapy and even more "tubies", we finally found out it was "central nervous system-primitive Neuro epithelial tumor" ... brain and spine cancer.

JR And Jessica
JR, Jessica, and Revel's Story
Born: November 17, 2015 Died: April 2018
Revel was born on November 17, 2015 and at 14 months of age was diagnosed with Stage 4 MYCN+ neuroblastoma, a very rare type of cancerous tumor that almost always affects children. This dreadful disease took the life of Revel at the tender age of 4.
Revel's Mom and Dad, Jessica and JR, will never get the chance to watch him grow up. Never be able to send him off to his first day of school, watch him play sports, meet his first girlfriend, graduate from high school and/or college, attend his wedding, play with his children or be involved in any important event in his life.
