Hi Dr. Tyson,

You delivered my daughter, Zahra Belle, on September 27, 2012. I was so happy to have found you after having a few bad experiences with doctors! You told me during one of my prenatal checkups that in just a few months, I would not be able to remember what life was like before this new life burst into mine. That has proven so true!

I learned about Callen at a recent checkup and have been keeping up with him on your blog. Your writing is profound and beautiful, and I just wanted you to know that I am deeply touched by your family's struggle and strength. I  pray regularly for Callen's restoration to health and for every blessing of grace for your family during this time.

With gratitude and blessing,

I am so happy to see an entry in your journal that reads Callen is in remission!! I have been keeping up with your entries and think about your family often. It is impossible to understand why such difficult situations have to happen to such great people, but your perseverence and fortitude are truly inspirational. I know you guys will make it through this and be all the closer for it. Callen, stay strong and know we all are thinking of you!

With love, Natalie

I have been perusing the TeamCallen website for a solid 30 minutes now, and am in complete awe of the strength, courage, and hope that pours through the descriptions and pictures of Callen & your family's journey. I cannot fathom what it takes. Please let me know if there's anything we can do to help (especially during your extended VCU stays).

Dr. Tyson, Callen and family,

I was saddened to learn of Callen's diagnosis with leukemia.  I know that he is in God's hands and he will be healed.  I just wanted to let you know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers daily.  I also wanted you to know that sharing your blog has been touching and inspirational.  Sending prayers and hugs for a speedy recovery.
