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

Gracie's 5th Birthday

Here is a picture of Gracie the day she was born.

Here is my princess 5 years later on her 5th birthday! Gracie wanted a Cinderella party and she chose this princess cake from Walmart. it was so cute and she loved it. It was sure easier on me too, not having to make it. :)

Gracie had some friends over for a party. It was her first time inviting friends over. Last year she wanted to, but in the end, she wan't feeling up to it. It was less than 2 weeks after her major surgery. I remember thinking last year that it might be her last birthday...How blessed and grateful we feel to have her so healthy and strong a year later!! I arranged a party through and the lady comes dressed as a princess and does all the games and activities. The kids had a ton of fun and each got their picture with Cinderella.

My little Cinderella. We love you Gracie!!


  1. What a cool idea. Happy belated birthday, Gracie!

  2. Happy birthday sweet Gracie!

  3. She is so beautiful Lisa and I just bawled reading the last two posts. You all have come such a long way and I'm so happy she is still here on the earth with all of us. She is such an inspiration to me. I still find it absolutely amazing how much our little children can teach us. They're definitely God's gifts... Love you!
