What is “Decorate for Dax?”
Dax is a two-year-old resident of Washington, IL who has been battling an extremely rare form of leukemia. After two bone marrow transplants, there is nothing more that can be done medically to cure Dax’s cancer. Given just a few weeks with a happy boy, the Locke family decided to celebrate every day like it was Christmas. To show our love and support for the Lockes without intruding on their last few precious weeks with Dax, friends and neighbors from Trails Edge in Washington decided to join them in celebrating Christmas early by putting up lights. People outside the neighborhood were touched by Dax’s story, and wanted to celebrate, too. We made this website so supporters near and far could show the Lockes they were thinking about them and praying for them. There are now lights literally all over the world as more people hear about Dax.
So this weekend, Mommy is going to talk Daddy into getting a small tree so we can decorate and show our support to Dax and his family. If you decide to decorate too go out to Dax's website and post a picture!
