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

"let us know what we can do to help"

1 in 5 children with cancer, will lose the battle. this number is even higher for Neuroblastoma. although it is only the 5th most common childhood cancer, it is responsible for the most deaths.
I hate how statistics like this constantly try and enter my mind! it is important for everyone to know this! but I already know and hate the constant reminders and worry. If it was your child, what would you do? Pretend for even a moment, if you can. This is not meant as a guilt trip. Please help us raise money to support childhood cancer research, if you can, even a few dollars, every bit helps. truly we all can make a difference together.
September is Childhood cancer awareness month.
Next week, Gracie will have her 3 month follow up scans. This enters my mind several times a day, and I ask for your prayers that the scans will remain clear!
