Cade Pitches State Finals Today

Robyn Openshaw - May 21, 2012 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links

This is my boy Kincade, graduating from high school this month. He’s a delightful kid to have around, loving and funny. He’s also the starting pitcher today at Timpanogos High School, in Game 3 of the state playoffs. He’s 6’3” and throws 90 mph. He’s injury free and healthy as an ox. This is the collage I am printing as a graduation gift to him, highlights from his senior year.

Eighteen years ago, he was below the 5th percentile for weight, and taking multiple drugs including steroids, bronchodilators, and frequent antibiotics. He was in and out of doctors’ offices and emergency rooms because he couldn’t breathe. When we eliminated sugar and dairy, and began eating greens, raw vegetables and fruits as staples, his asthma symptoms decreased quickly and finally disappeared. He gained weight and began to thrive quickly. I will never go back. And I will be forever grateful for this discovery.

Hope and pray with me today that he pitches well in the spectacular $2.5 million Kearns stadium and that the scouts are out so Cade might be offered scholarships. I’m so proud of him. And so thankful that I was able to find the answers to avert a health disaster and allow my son to fulfill the measure of his creation.

    Great collage! What an amazing young man he has become because you dared to follow the road less travelled! Loved hearing about his story, when you were here in Sac. and share it with many. Hope pitching in the Kearns stadium brings some good news. 🙂

  7. There’s no turning back when you see results like that…especially when it’s your child!
    Keeping my fingers crossed for him today. The acton shots are GREAT!

    I’m finishing up a quilt this week for a customer’s graduating Senior. It’s made from his football jerseys. Cade would probably like a keepsake like that. 😉

  8. Luckily kincade had a mother who wanted the best for her son and was proactive to figure it out to help him and many many others.
    Congratulations Kincade, you look awesome and strong…like an ox as stated. Your an example.
    Hope your day went well and may the best school get you for their team, praying for you!

    Kincade seems like one of our kids out here in blog land. We are proud of him too. He has chosen to live a life of good choices, and it’s obvious. Congratulations for doing your best, Cade. That’s all that’s required, and you are reaping the rewards. You have a beautiful future, and a beautiful family. Lots of encouragement from us in far-
