On September 12, 2008, Will Hladun was admitted to the hospital. Six days later he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer and given a slim chance of survival. He was two-months old at the... More > time.
For nearly every day during his five month battle with cancer, Will's father wrote letters to him in hopes that some day Will would have a better understanding of what happened to him when he was a baby.
The letters shared the fears, the triumphs, the sadness, and the courage of a little baby boy that became known across the country and world as Brave Will.
The letters gave everyone who followed a glimpse into the struggles of a family trying to cope with the unthinkable. However, in the midst of tragedy, a little baby, who couldn't speak a word, managed to teach lessons about life, hope, courage, devotion, and love. And for that, we are forever grateful to have been part of the life of Brave Will.< Less
