Chad, you are an inspiration and if you are anything like your Aunt Lori you are full of fun and energy (and a little craziness). Your aunt Lori and I have been friends since high school and she has shared your journey. Your Mom played the piano at our wedding in 1996. We wish you only the best and healthy days ahead! And Happy Valentine's Birthday!

Hello Chad-- we just received the most beautiful Valentine's day card from the Rauber family, our long lost neighbors and friends who lived across the street from us in Woodbury, MN about seven years ago. Their Valentine's card honors YOU. Wow.... we have never received such a heartfelt card as this... and we feel so blessed and honored to be wishing YOU a very special birthday. Actually you are giving US a gift at the moment because for some silly reason we thought the Rauber family was still living at a totally different address until this card arrived in our mailbox today and we took note of their return address label (we have an old Washington, DC address for them...) We see they now live only about 1/2 hour away from our son who is at Washington University in St Louis!!! Now that we know where Lori, et al, live we will reconnect via email. So, thank YOU for sharing a birthday/Valentine gift with US!!! What a small world.... Happy Birthday to you, Chad! You have given us much happiness today in helping us finally locate our long lost neighbors :o)

Happy Birthday Chad!! Your Aunt Lori and I were best friends in high school so I have known the entire Sellhorst clan a LONG time. I look forward to meeting you some day too. You are an inspiration Chad to so many people. Good thoughts and prayers are coming your way from Colorado for a successful benefit and a wonderful year ahead. Good luck!

Chad~I have been friends with your Aunt Lori for almost 20 years and during those years she has spoken so highly of you. I have voted for your truly amazing art work on line and I have heard of your struggles throughout the years. I also know you bring your family so much joy. In 23 years you have had to endure so much more than most people do in a lifetime. Stay strong and keep on fighting. May God bless you.

Chad- I'm getting so excited for the press release to go out, so everyone in the KC area can get to see the struggles you are going through and to help donate to COTA in your honor! Everyone in the CF clinic at Children's Mercy have been talking about your Second Wind benefit and we are all getting excited for it. I've been working on some auction items! Take care and know that I'm rooting for you!
