Welcome to Billy's Page, We hope you'll come away from your visit here with a greater understanding of the World of Childhood cancer. Yes, Billy's Page is about the C word, the BIG C, the Devil's disease; and yes Children get it too.
For those of you who have been with us for the past 13+ years as we've fought the fight of our lives, Welcome back. For those of you who are new to Billy's Page, and the World of Childhood cancer; please CLICK HERE and open your eye's, as well as your heart, to this terrible disease as you read Billy's story. You'll never look at a bald headed Child the same ever again, I promise you. There are 89 page's that make up the daily, weekly, and monthly update's as Billy fought for his life; as well as hundreds more page's I've authored that include photo's of Billy's surgeries, Dr's, Family and Friends. I have spelled out, in sometimes graphic ways, what it's like living in the "World of Cancer". As you thumb through the over 525 page's of this web site you'll laugh, cry, gasp, and just be overwhelmed with a new understanding about cancer, and our Children.

Upon hearing of Billy's diagnosis, Nashville Singer, song writer Eric Horner was so moved by Billy, and his battle's, that after his visit with Billy in the Hospital in St. Pete., it started to rain. He wrote this song on the plane back to Nashville in 2003.
Eric and Debby (Erics Wife) had felt in their hearts that Billy would be just fine. Eric wrote, and dedicated this song to Billy! "No Need Lookin' Back"
Permission was asked for and givin, to include the songs "Billy Make's It Rain" and "No Need Lookin' Back" on this web site. Thank you Eric Horner Ministries.
