My beautiful niece Gracie was recently diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (cancer). It is still early in the diagnosis and we are awaiting results to know more about the fight that Gracie will face. I've created this blog as an outlet for friends and family to stay informed about her journey and a way for friends and family to make anonymous contributions towards her care and the mounting expenses her family will face. Gracie is a fighter and the bravest 3 year old I know. Hundreds of people love you Gracie and are praying for you. "Be strong and of good courage for the Lord thy God is with thee" Joshua 1:9

Neuroblastoma

Here is a MRI picture of Gracie's Neuroblastoma. We are starting chemotherapy today to try and shrink the tumor down so that the surgeons can try to take out the tumor. Gracie will be receiving 5 different chemotherapy medications to try to do this. We will have several months of chemotherapy before the surgeons can operate. We hope and pray that the chemotherapy destroys the cells that are outside the actual tumor in the lymphatic system. Please do not copy or distribute this MRI beyond this blog. We just wanted people to be able to see and understand the disease a little better. Thank you for all of your prayers and support. --Brandon
