Carter

Carter

Carter was a sweet and loving boy! He was born on April 8, 2010, a happy baby. Carter was a typical toddler, running around and playing with his brother and friends. When he was 19 months old, he was diagnosed with Stage IV High Risk Neuroblastoma. He was diagnosed on 11/11/11. It was not a lucky day for us, but Carter was a fighter and fought hard for two and a half years before losing his battle with cancer on February 27, 2014.

He fought with such grace and strength and earned the nickname Super Carter! Everyone who met him fell instantly in love, and even through all the chemo, surgeries, radiation, stem cell transplants and clinical trials, Carter always had a smile. He taught us all to love more, and live everyday to the fullest.

Carter loved playing doctor (with real medical supplies), loved fire trucks, helicopters, garbage trucks, cleaning machines, and playing outside! He had a great love of dogs and animals. And chocolate and candy! And a great love of music - especially Bruno Mars and Pink. He loved his brother and they loved being silly together! He was a wonderful boy, and we are so proud to be his parents. We miss him with all of our hearts - we will never be the same without him. He is forever in our hearts!
