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

It's been 3 years

It's been 3 years since the day they did an ultrasound and found the tumor. I can't help but remember that day and the shock, fear, and anxiety associated with it. It was one of the worst days of my LIFE! I say one of the worst, because there were too many awful days ahead that I didn't know how my heart could take it without literally breaking in bits. What an amazing child we have. I can hardly bear to even remember what she has been through. The hard part is that she remembers it all. If you think about it, she was almost 4 at the time and that is kinda where people start to remember things anyway. especially as tramatic as that. We are so proud of our Amazing Gracie and SO beyond blessed and grateful to have her still with us and doing so well!!!
I am still waiting to hear when her scan will be. They are waiting to get her old scans from TX and OK so they will be able to compare it with the old ones. We thank you for all your love and support these past 3 years. We are blessed to have you in our lives.


  1. Hi,

    I have a quick question about your blog, would you mind emailing me when you get a chance?




  2. Do you mind if I email. Your story of finding the tumor via ultrasound is exactly the same as ours. My daughter Ariana turned 4 Dec. 2012 and 3 months later we have begun a journey I never could have imagined being on. She has had a lot of emotional outbursts, but is so brave and amazing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you, Lisa Paxton

  3. She is adorable!! I will pray for her good health!!

  4. I was just checking in and hope her health continues to improve. I began following your story many years ago and am so happy for this report as it had been a while since I have checked back in. I will pray for good health for little Gracie. I hope that you continued to receive good news from the follow up appointments this past year and will continue in the future.
