An "exceptional" son and his father are inspiration for each other in many ways. The family's journey is documented here daily (well almost). The father's artworks along with father & son collaborations are for sale and can be viewed here as well.

We Will Always Remember Their Sacrifice
"As our enemies have found we can reason like men, so now let us show them we can fight like men also." Thomas Jefferson
Ben is a wonderfully happy 18-year-old boy. He has a rare genetic disorder scientifically known as Tetrasomy 12p. The related syndrome is called Pallister-Killian Syndrome (PKS). As for me (Bennie, the dad), I'm a 1986 graduate of Furman University with a BA in fine Art. Married to my wife Joan for 24 years, we have two children; a daughter named Jessie and our son Ben.
It is our desire that this blog not only provide need fundraising for Make-A-Wish South Carolina but to also give you inspiration, hope, joy, and insight for your own journey in life.
