News of Sinjin 2007
The cancer is Back and we are Heartbroken as Sinjin once again 
Fights for LIfe and Lives 4 The Cure

Welcome to Sinjin's site. I created this for Sinjin because life is a wonderful gift, full of precious and sometimes heart wrenching yesterdays todays and tomorrows. We are LIVINGSTRONG and want share all these memories with all of you as Sinjin continues his battle. Here you can smile, laugh, cry and pray with us. After an eight month battle in 2007 Sinjin was told he was cancer free, just 3 weeks later we find out he still has cancer with a 25% survival rate. He started his battle all over again  Jan 2008 and this time he will also need a Bone Marrow Transplant. Because cancer is now also in his bone marrow...survival rate less than 5%. Sinjin is a fighter and  beat this cancer once again. We contine to move forward in hope we can Kick cancer to the curb once and for all. Sinjin has chosen to share his site with many other children..his friends fighting cancer and the ones who have gone to heaven. We thank you for all your continued prayers. The war rages on but we have unstoppable hope.
  Much love to you all. 
  Sinjin's mama Lorna

Hello everyone it's me Sinjin!!!!
When I found out I  had Cancer in 2007 I was really scared and afraid I was gonna die. I have a cancer that is called Burkitts Lymphoma and it is a cancer that grows real fast, my tumor was the size of a small basketball the months of chemo shrunk it down to the size of a golf ball and then i had a operation and they took it out. I thought I would be done but I am not. Chemo makes all us kids real sick and we have to spend alot of time in the hospital. With chemo you almost have to die to live!!! I decided that i wanted to share my site with pictures of other kids like me fighting this battle and also those who have fallen in this war..kids i care about Thank you for stopping by and signing my guestbook.

TTYL Livingstrong with courage  Sinjin
           Here is a poem my mom and I wrote together

"Walking On The Edge Of Life"

The world keeps moving forward

as time stands still for me,

I am the kid with Cancer,

locked in battle to be free.

For all us kids on chemo

our lives are put on hold,

As we fight to stay alive,

our chances good were told.

Our attitude is courage

we live this life each day,

Just waiting for tomorrow,

praying cancer goes away.

Walking on the edge of life

were never looking down,

United here in front of you,

until a cure is found.

Special Memories
Christmas 2007  
Sinjin you had a wonderful christmas this year and goodness knows you made out like a lil fat rat. Big 37" flat screen TV from Santa and his Helpers from somwhere in Lampasas Texas. You were so funny you kept pinching yourself and saying I must be dreaming!!! The Andrukate's Family the whole lot of them got you many wii games and a gift card for game crazy. Me and Dad John picked up the very few that were left on your list and it was a long list so that tells you that The Andrukates clan hooked you up real well this christmas. We were able to get get you Guitar Hero only because it was not on the list you sent to them lol. My co-worker's all pitched in a got you a gift card fom game crazy which you loved. My co worker Greg went out and bought you a VCR/DVD player which you were thrilled with. Your Mi Mi got you the game scene it the 2nd addition Disney and tonight you are insisting we all play I am willing but John is putting up a fight. lol lol   Sissy sent you an entire season of Full House which you were excited about...your such a silly goose that you love all the old shows including the Cosby show. The list goes on Aunt Kay Kays Sorority Beta Sigma Phi of Copperas Cove Tx gifted you with a 100.00 Walmart gift card and many gift card fom Mc Donald's, Subway, Burger King, Jack N The Box, Dairy Oueen the list goes on. You said They are pure GENUIS. Sinjin wants me to Thank all who made this such a wonderful Christmas for him so
Thank you ALL. He also said to thank the Outlaws for coming to our home  a few days before Christmas. Them being here was so Special for him and he was so happy.
Fire Alarm  
When you were  around six years old in grade school at Cove Christian School I will never forget the day I received a call from your school that they needed to talk to me because that day you had done something thay could not believe you would ever do.  As all the children were lined up in the hall  waiting to go back to class the fire alarm went off. Everyone was rushed outside in the pouring down rain the adults running around trying to find what was on fire. You marched up to the front of the line and told the teacher " I have always wanted to know what it would sound like when the fire alarm sounds" The teacher looked at you and said Sinjin did you pull the fire alarm. You looked at her and smiled at and said oh yes it was me  and now we all know what it sounds like and it was a good practice for all of us. Sinjin you silly goose you were in big trouble and did not even know what a mess you caused. I had to sit down with them and you sitting there not a care in the world telling me mama it was real loud and we all rushed outside. I said Sinjin why would you do such a thing you just smiled your sweet smile and said "mama I just wanted to know what it sounded like so if we had a real fire I would know. None of the kids had ever heard it before and so when we had to wait in line so long I looked up and there it was so I pulled it. I did not know what to say you had never been in trouble before and thought you were doing a good thing... We had to explain to you that you should never ever touch the fire alarm and you looked at us all and said but what if there is a fire we all had to smile at that remark and told you then and only then were you allowed to pull the alarm. As we were leaving school that day you said "mama did you ever hear a fire alarm and I told  you yes that when I was young we used to practice at school every so often so we kids would know what to do, Sinjin smiled at me and said well mama that was our very first practice. I love you son and you did not pull that alarm to be mean you pulled it so you could practice. When your Uncle Dennis found out what you had done he gave you a high five and said to you Sinjin Uncle Dennis is proud of you you!!! Tooo funny and just like your Uncle to say that to you.
Memories of a Christmas  
I remember back when Sinjin was just  wee little and he had spent Christmas with his father. It was hard for me to let him go because I did not like being away from him. I would drive Sinjin to Waco Texas and meet his father who would meet us there and then Sinjin would go with him to Dallas. That Christmas I had Sinjin's gifts waiting for him when he got home that night. John and I had bought him a bike and I had his stocking stuffed and in the stocking there I placed a kite. I have it on video Sinjin walking through the door and looking over and getting very excited and  running  straight past the new bike saying" I got a kite...Mama!!! Please mama I fly kite yes I fly kite mama okay mama okay okay" It brought tears to my eyes that he was more excited over a three dollar kite rather than the expensive bike sitting there, he was always so easy to please. I said Bud see the bike he said "oh yes mama pretty bike.. but I fly kite pleasse mama. The next day Sinjin did fly his kite, his bright smiling face looking up to the sky  as he watched his kite floating on the breeze. We captured that day on video and each time I watch it it takes me back to that special time.
 Mama loves you Sinjin and over the years time and time again you have moved me to tears just being who you are, a sweet loving child that God gave me as a gift. You and Sissy are my greatest gifts in life and you both fill my heart with such joy.
                                           Love you so very much
                                                                                   Mama
