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

February Fun

We took a family trip to Colorado for skiing. Gracie hadn't been feeling very well a few days before, and decided to just play in the snow, and not ry skiing. no problem with me! I was perfectly happy to stay with her and Von. :) I only tried skiing once 10 years ago and i was very bad at it. maybe next year :) well, she loved the snow! We had a great time.
i love this picture of her laying in the snow, she was so happy and making a snow angel.
Gracie at her Kindergarten class valentine party.
Gracie and Chloe at the girl scout slumber under the sea. She wasn't feeling very well this day either, so she just stayed a couple hours.
Gracie had some back pain earlier on this month that was intense and lasted 8 straight days, it just went away after that. we had an MIBG scan done to check for neuroblastoma but it was clear, thankfully. then she has had random times of pain and puking. It seems to be related to the adrenal insufficiency. she does a lot better, once she gets the hydrocortisone. We go back for her 9 month scans next month.


  1. Yay! What great experiences you all are having. I love that she is in Girl Scouts! I am the Product Sales Assistant Manager for the Girl Scouts of Kansas Heartland (which means my life revolves around GS Cookies a good portion of the year). :)

  2. What fun! Such great memories being made. Love the braids as well! =)
