As I was driving into work yesterday, I looked up and saw Cristian’s billboard on the West Side Highway. I couldn’t believe how amazing it looked. I dreamed of this moment for so long and it was better than I had ever imagined. If only Cristian were here to see it. He would have loved it. I miss him so much, but at the same time I am so proud of what his foundation can accomplish and I’m excited for all the great things that will come from it. So many people will hear about Pontine Glioma for the first time and they will be able to help me find a cure for the disease that took my baby boy. I don’t want any parent to have to miss their child the way I miss my Cristian. But at least I know that I can see his face every time I go for a drive on the West Side Highway.
