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

Home!!!

Gracie kept eating "good" and keeping it down, so they let her come home on Wednesday for the weekend. She will start the next round of chemo on Monday. She was so excited to come home. ever since she got home she has been playing and talk talk talking! it is so wonderful to see her so happy!!
on the way home daddy was being silly to get a smile. then later on I looked over at her and saw her smiling. I said "is daddy being silly again?" and she said "No. I"m smiling cause I"m excited to go home!" It melted my heart. She was at the hospital 28 days.


So happy to be home!!!!

Yesterday we made cupcakes and today we colored easter eggs. We are so happy she is home for easter and that we can spend the weekend as a family. Please keep praying that the next round of chemo will be easier on her. hopefully now it will be since we seem to have the right combination of medicines for nausea etc. :) :) :) thanks!!!!!

  1. What an amazing weekend to come home on. It's comforting to know Christ understands what she is going through right now! That He suffered for this sweet beautiful child, so she would not be alone in her suffering. Yeah for home! kg
