Bennett Cain Sterling

Bennett is an angel who only lived here for a short while but changed our lives and the lives of many others forever. He came to make a difference. He had a job to do, and he did it well. We are honored that we were chosen to be his parents and grateful that we were able to take care of such a beautiful child.

Bennett was born May 18, 2002 at a whooping 10.1 lbs! He was full of life, loved to smile and give kissies. On October 2, 2002, we found out that Bennett had a brain tumor. Bennett endured 4 brain surgeries, more than 30 weeks of chemotherapy, 6 weeks of radiation and still managed to smile and play (we have pictures to prove it!).

Bennett taught us the greatest lessons of life. He taught us to be patient, live in the moment, and to always, always have HOPE!!! On November 18, 2003, Bennett's battle ended, but he lives on in spirit, cancer-free and full of love. We continued to be blessed by his life and his love.
