Quinton's Bucket List

Q and Kira in the buggy at Thanksgiving Point last Friday.

Today we have an MRI of Q's brain. Dr. Riva-Cambrin wanted to make sure he wasn't missing something. Then at 2, we meet with an Oncologist, Dr. Bergers, and Dr. Riva-Cambrin together. It looks like radiation after the spinal surgery is a pretty good bet.

We've had an outpouring of love and kind offers from people who want to help and do something. We prodded Q to come up with a list of things he'd like to do before his surgery, and maybe people can help us with ideas on how to make these cool or easy. And maybe friends or family can plan to come on some of these outings.

  • Bowling -- Thursday afternoon

  • Eating at Tucanos -- Thursday evening

  • 7 Peaks Waterpark -- Friday ( I had to laugh because going down a slide on his back doesn't sound too great, but they have a lot of innertube rides)

  • Hiking -- Saturday (Maybe Bridal Veil Falls)

  • Biking -- Saturday (Maybe we could just keep going out the canyon and ride out in Midway or something?)

  • Golfing -- Monday

  • Shooting -- Monday

  • Fishing -- Tuesday (Maybe at Payson Lakes?)

Hey there, it's Mr. D. I am currently getting all of Quinton's classmates from last year to sign a card for him. I'd love to drop it by this weekend sometime but it sounds like he's going to be quite the busy guy! If he would like, could I come along for one of his activities and give it to him then? You can email me at He is such a special kid and I really want to do anything I can to help him.

Thinking of you and your family!
