walk on

It is with excitement and much gratitude that we announce today that the Center for Childhood Cancer Research has a new name:

The Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research

Seattle Children’s Press Release

Thank you to everyone who has been part of this movement. To our family and friends, to those of you who have stood by us since Ben’s diagnosis, to all of you who have been a part of Ben Towne Foundation – this is possible because of you.

We are excited about this next step. It is about hope. It is about redemption. It does not change the past. But we believe it can change the future.

Let us walk together towards the day when all childhood cancers are cured.

With Thanks,
Jeff & Carin

“Walk On” – U2

And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage that you can bring
And love is not the easy thing
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can’t leave behind

And if the darkness is to keep us apart
And if the daylight feels like it’s a long way off
And if your glass heart should crack
And for a second you turn back
Oh no, be strong

Walk on, walk on
What you got they can’t steal it
No they can’t even feel it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

You’re packing a suitcase for a place none of us has been
A place that has to be believed to be seen
You could have flown away
A singing bird in an open cage
Who will only fly, only fly for freedom

Walk on, walk on
What you’ve got they can’t deny it
Can’t sell it, or buy it
Walk on, walk on
Stay safe tonight

And I know it aches
And your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much
Walk on, walk on

Home… hard to know what it is if you’ve never had one
Home… I can’t say where it is but I know I’m going home
That’s where the heart is

And I know it aches
How your heart it breaks
And you can only take so much 
Walk on, walk on

Leave it behind
You got to leave it behind
All that you fashion
All that you make
All that you build
All that you break
All that you measure
All that you feel
All this you can leave behind
All that you reason
All that you sense
All that you speak
All you dress-up
All that you scheme…
