You have to start brainwashing them at a young age

I’d like to introduce the readers of iHateGreenBeans to an amazing little guy.  His name is Walker.  And even though he turned 11 months old this week, he already knows one of the fundamental truths that I hold so dear to my heart.

Take a look:

It doesn’t get more clear than that folks.  Green beans are evil. 

Walker is so smart to recognize this when his taste buds are so young.  He’s also a rock star when it comes to other things.  Like fighting cancer. 

About four months ago, I received a Facebook message from Walker’s parents.  Missy and Chad informed us that their precious little boy had been diagnosed with a malignant Rhabdoid Tumor. 

The strength that Missy, Chad and their immediate family all possess is humbling to read.  As I complain daily about about how my knee hurts when I bend it, they are faithful that God’s plan for Walker’s life is a perfect one and are prayerful that He will perform a miracle on his little body.

When this YouTube clip was included in Missy’s latest update, I emailed her and basically said she was not expressing true Pi Phi sisterhood qualities if she didn’t let me post it on my website. 

Her only request was that I include their family website so others could be encouraged by Walker’s amazing story. 

See what I mean?  They choose to be faithful.  They choose to fight.  That’s their family way. 

Please feel free to visit www.prayforwalker.com and read about story.  Prepare to be inspired. 

And let’s all send up a little prayer for Walker…my green bean hatin’ buddy!

Oh my gosh, when I saw this my heart skipped a beat. I thought maybe you just stumbled across the video on YouTube because of the green beans reference. Then I read on… small world. One of my closest friends was Missy’s college roommate! I’ve been praying my heart out for Walker (not knowing their family) for several months and receiving his Caring Bridge updates. And I’ve been one of your loyal blog readers for even longer than I’ve known of Team Rainey! Wow! FAITHFUL AND FIGHTING! WE ALL HATE GREEN BEANS!

My heart goes out to the Rainey family. I will keep them all in my thoughts and prayers. What a beautiful, sweet baby – thanks for sharing Walker and his family with us. God bless.

What a precious little angel he is! Of course I will pray for his recovery. It’s awful to see anyone have to endure cancer- but a baby? It’s just so wrong. His parents must be very special people. I wish them strength and courage during this difficult journey.

Oh wow… my son is 3 1/2 months old, and I just started weeping here at my desk at work. That family is SO STRONG and has immediately captured my heart. BLESS THEM for their tenacity and faith, and we’ll be keeping them in our prayers.

And I completely agree – WE ALL HATE GREEN BEANS!!!!! *L*

One of your sorority sisters turned me on to your site a few years ago —- and recently posted the Team Rainey Caring Bridge site on her Facebook … now I’m a reader of both. Walker Jack and his parents are truly amazing.

#7 Kendall, I thought the exact same thing. My son is 6 months old and bears a STRONG resemblance to Walker. I read their website last night and just sobbed. God bless this family, give them peace and mercy, and keep them strong during this time.
