The family and I just sat down to watch ABC World News. It was an exciting and proud moment to see you on tv, being honored as person of the week. It was just as exciting to see ourselves on the same program, cheering you on and our son Nathan, right there, riding as part of your team the day of your homecoming. Wow! And then I looked at my husband, Sean...and both of us, with tears in our eyes instantly felt like, how can we be happy about our kids being on "tv" when you've lost Pablo! We've followed your family's journey for so long now. We fell in love with Pablo and your family the minute we read your blog many, many months ago. Your family is an inspiration. You, Jeff, are an inspiration. You have us! We are in this fight with you! We will spread the word about the Pablove Foundation. We will talk about Pablo and tell his story...tell your story, to whoever will listen. All our love to you, JoAnn and Grady! The Hickey Family

Our family proudly watched you tonight on ABC as their Person of the Week. We have followed your blog for over a year now and are so inspired by all that you and JoAnn have accomplished in recent months for the Pablove Foundation. Our own hearts are filled to the brim with the love you have for your two boys and the desire you have to make a difference, in Pablo's name, for other children fighting cancer. You are amazing people, with so much love and courage, and it's contagious. We remember Pablo through your efforts and we want you to know that you are our Person of the Year!
much love and gratitude to you all,
the Kavanaugh's

Beautiful! Jeff you are certainly an inspiration! I have shared your story with so many of my friends and the comment is always the same. "what a fighting family!" That is what you, Jo Anne and Grady are...the family that fights! You say that Pablo was a little bundle of energy and it is easy to see where he got that from. thank you again for keeping us updated as not a day goes by that I don't think of you guys.
Thank You to ABC for having you as the Person of The Week, it was wonderful to see!!
Have a great week...we are enjoying some white stuff here right now! Yipee!
Be well...in our thoughts always!
Lisa :)
p.s. thank you also for letting us know about Sicily. I have been sending positive energy Kerry's way and praying that adorable Sicily's fight will go well.
