Stranger Friends

What does a four year Aggie baseball team letterman and now father of three children have in common with Will?

A few weeks ago I would have said nothing. Well that's not the case. Through Neil's business interactions, he met a man named Sean Heaney. Sean was helping Neil's company set up insurance and other various important things for all the employees. As he and Neil got to talking, Neil told him about Will and the Leigh's Disease.

A few short days later, Neil comes home and tells me that this guy, a total stranger to Will, wants to run the San Antonio Half Marathon in Will's honor AND to help raise money to find a cure.

This stranger is now a friend.

I hope that all of our friends will go to Sean's website and consider cheering him on in his admirable quest to help Will and other families.

Thank you Sean from the bottom of our hearts. It means so much to us. Good luck on Nov. 13. We will be cheering you on from Houston. Will has a pretty loud voice, so you might even hear him.


  1. Awww this brings tears to my eyes!! What a wonderful man! God bless him!! =)

  2. I should note that Neil has actually known Sean for a while now. I just meant that he hadn't met Will. Just wanted to clarify after re-reading. He is a wonderful man!! Thanks again Sean! Lori
