Remember this picture taken of the “twins”, Ben age 3 and Claire age 5, taken on February 27? We jokingly call them the twins because Ben weighs more than Claire even though he’s 2 years younger. Just look at that sweet face! Yesterday Ben was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He will be in the hospital getting chemo for a week and then get further chemo as an outpatient for 3 years. Roy and Connie and Ben’s family are all shocked and very sad to think that Ben will have to endure these treatments. I know you will all remember them in your thoughts and prayers. Should you want to send a card to Ben Tesene, here is his address:
8342 Heritage Bend Rd.
West DesMoines, IA 50266
Connie’s son, Joe, is a dentist in Des Moines. Life’s priorities can change in the blink of an eye, can’t they? What I was so concerned with just 2 days ago, now pales in comparison. I was having such a good time watching March Madness
