Our friends Cody and Tennille who've shared many adventures with us over the years recently became parents in December. Their son, Jett, was born with PontoCerebellar Hypoplasia type 2 (PCH). It's a pretty hard diagnosis to swallow as a parent as it basically means that he will never sit, crawl, walk, talk, or interact socially. Worst of all, the life expectancy for a child diagnosed with this rare disease is usually no more than 2 years. To say it's heart breaking is an understatement.

"Let's help Jett travel the world and do as many amazing things as he can in his limited lifetime. If he can't do it himself, he can do it "on your heart". Email pictures of you wearing the t-shirt to Cody or Tennille, and they will be able to cross those places off Jett's "Flight Plan"!"
If you have a second, please click over to Jett's blog and read his story. He is such a fighter and I've been so blessed to get to know him over the past few months. His life has truly made me reflect on the many blessings I have and he reminds me what is really important in this world (hint: it's not weight loss). Anyway, thank you for taking a second to read this post. All of you are so awesome.
Oh, and did I mention that Cody and Tennille are pretty much a twin couple to Hubster and me? Check it out:
