  1. Bon,
    This is what i put on facebook tonight. I tried So You Think You Can Dance website as well as looking on facebook to find any clues on how I can contact Randy. Monday, I am going to call Fox News to see what they can tell me.

    My 16 year old niece, Sofia Huntington was diagnosed with osteosarcoma last week. She has a tumor in her knee and will be starting aggressive chemotherapy next week at PCMC. She attended a dance workshop a month ago with Randy Evans from the 5th episode of So You Think You Can Dance and was not able to dance in the workshop. Does anyone know how I can contact Randy so that Sofie can meet her?

    Let me know what I can do next week besides coming to visit my Sofie girl at PCMC! Love you and will be fasting for you on Sunday. What a girl that Sofie is!

    Love, Auntie Jessie

  2. Bonnie,
    Angela just sent me a video which your family must see...and then read the talk. It is from President Uchtdorf's talk called The Infinite Power of Hope. Go to this blog: and scroll down to the bottom video Hope and click on it to watch is beautiful and I cried through it, thinking about Sofie...but his words give so much strength.
    Love, Jessie

  3. Bonnie and Sofie,
    I have been getting updates from Nadija. I was so sad to hear about the cancer. But you can do it and beat this thing. As someone who went thru chemo, remember its mission is to kill you and your mission is to survive. (My oncologist told me that).
    Love you and are sending you all the best kill cancer vibes,

  4. Bon,
    The blog site i gave you was wrong. It's

  5. "No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, build up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our soul, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God...and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in Heaven." ---Orson F.
