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

what a difference a week makes!

We have had a WONDERFUL week at home!! she doesn't look too happy in this piture. but she was smiling SO big the whle time it was going. this was after it stopped and she wasnt interested in a picture. :) lol. this was just a carousel at the mall here.
We went to the park one evening cause there is a splashpad there. Gracie wasnt interested in getting wet but played a little on the playground. This is her "trying to not smile" look.

Gracie loves doing crafts and she did this glitter craft so well almost entirely by herself. She also has a ton of fun swinging on the new playset in our backyard. The first thing she asks every morning is " can I go in the dolphin swing?" She just laughs and laughs when we push her in it. She also loves the sandbox. She was not wanting any pictures this week so all i have of the sandbox are grumpy ones. :)

Gracie is a little artist and loves to paint. She has great attention to detail. She is excited to turn 4 next month and has asked for more painting stuff. :) She also showed me the bike she wants. I hope she feels good on her birthday. It is July 25.

Here's a big smile cause she was so proud of her finshed painting!! Beautiful I must say!!
Tomorrow she goes back for round 5 of chemo. Still waiting to hear when surgery will be.


  1. She looks so cute and happy Lisa, hopefully surgery will be soon; good luck with round 5 and know I am thinking of ya

  2. Yay! Very glad to hear about these good times. Still praying for your speedy recovery, Gracie.
