My name is Mona Pinon, I never thought in a million years that my family and I would be where we are today. Five years ago I had filled for divorce, I was pregnant with our 4th child and I felt I had done all I can do to save our marriage. My divorce attorney advised me to wait until my son was born to finalize the divorce. Isaac was born August 20, 2010 3 weeks early, after his birth he was rushed to the NICU for meconium aspiration. This hard time brought my husband and I together and I was considering giving him another chance. When Isaac was 2 months he was hospitalized with Pneumonia. Follow-up xrays showed a mass in his chest. at 3 1/2 months he was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, two weeks later that same cancer paralyzed him. This was the first time in our marriage we had no choice but to trust each other. I know God sent Isaac to us as a miracle. Not only was a marriage saved, but we have a HOPE that can never be taken away. We are going on 10 years married and enjoying everything that life has to offer. Isaac continues to inspire everyone around him including me. I started a wheelchair accessible playground project at the school he will attend this coming fall. Miracles come in small packages. Isaac is currently cancer and tumor free and a very active four year old boy.
