The Cary Gang

We are the Cary family...

Valerie and I have been married and living in the Dallas area since 1987.  We have three kids - Austin, Trenton and Allison - and, in may ways, we are a pretty average gang.  The idea for Still Thankful came, not from Trenton's various health challenges, but from our survival of them and our ability to return to average life.  I have told Trenton that he is not going through these challenges for no reason, and that good should come from it.  We have been given an opportunity to help others.

Still Thankful exists to support parents who have lost a child, or have a child who has experienced a serious illness.  We hope to inspire and encourage parents who feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope with feelings of "why me" or "it's not fair."  Over time, we hope to add resources for support, connection, administration and education, and we would welcome your input and participation.
