The impossible is possible if you just believe. James has overcome medical miracles and continues to gain strength and courage throughout his recovery. He suffered a cardiac arrest while running on a hot summer day. Doctors said James would never be able to see, breathe or even sit-up on his own. Little did they know, that God’s hands were healing him everyday and has helped James overcome all medical prognoses. We thank you all for the amazing support and encouragement!
We are very thankful

Heart Walk 2015
"3rd Annual Team James"
We were so blessed to have such a beautiful day and an amazing team for James! A very big THANK YOU for all your support, love and encouragement throughout this journey. Today, James walked 5 full city blocks and crossed the finish line with an outstanding team cheering him on. There were many smiles, tears, high-fives and hugs waiting for him at the finish line! Words can not describe the amazing day we all had today supporting the 3rd annual Team James at the Heart Walk. James hopes to walk a half mile next year and we are praying everyday for many more miracles to come!!
Many Blessings, Rachael & James
INSPIRE those around you and make a difference EVERYDAY!
A few months ago, we were contacted by the Timberwolves Foundation about supporting James as their National Monthly Hero. They were very happy to invite James to a Timberwolves game to walk onto the court, meet the team and shake hands with the president of the Timberwolves Foundation. On top of the wonderful honor, James received a free suite on his behalf, along with inviting 12 friends to join him! This was such an incredible experience and we have been to blessed by the amazing support and encouragement everyone has given us through this journey!
James have been working on writing his name and writing sentences. James was asked by his therapist to write any four word sentence he could come up with. After he thought about it for a few short seconds...he began to write... "I love my life." James' courage and strength continues to grow everyday in physical and fine motor abilities. His sprit and love for life and learning continues to be his anchor through all of his obstacles. We encourage you to think of a four word sentence that you can recite daily to encourage you to be the best you, YOU can be!!
James started aquatics therapy last month. He has been able to stand on his own in the pool and walk with his therapist with very little assistance. James has enjoyed frog jumping off of the side wall of the pool and shooting basketball hoops.
We were very blessed to have such a beautiful weekend to explore our Nation's Capital. James walked up all of the Lincoln Memorial stairs and pulled a Rocky move at the top. I am very proud of you James for all your courage and strength everyday!
