The world lost a radiant child on Thursday. Erin Buenger, 11 years old and quite likely the first woman president of the U.S. She was brainy, compassionate, beautiful and absolutely crackling with energy and zest. Soon after Toby was diagnosed I found her mother's incredible blog and cannot tell you how many times Erin's attitude turned me around. She did great things in her short life. We grieve with her family.
