This is a public "diary" of a family whose little girl started a battle with inoperable cancer in April 2005. In December 2007 our house burned down. And in September 2009 Mommy was diagnosed with a terminal disease (a genetic form of ALS) that took her to Heaven in July, 2011, leaving Daddy and two young girls to make it on their own. Over several years of ups and downs, you will get into our hearts, minds and souls as we share joys and sorrows. It can sometimes be very difficult to read. We hope it is also uplifting. Please find joy in what you read here.

Happy Valentine's Day

Hope you all have had a nice Valentine's day and have been able to share it with someone you love. Rebekah & Sarah both wore Hearts today in honor of the holiday.

Tomorrow morning we take Rebekah into the hospital for her 2 year post treatment MRI and Chest CT. We have to be there bright and early (7:15 am). Rebekah has to skip breakfast since she needs sedation, so the rest of us will be skipping breakfast with her. This is always an anxious time for us. We hope and pray that the cancer stays gone, but with scans we know we might find out that the cancer is back. The reality is that it could come back and if it does it is very, very difficult to treat. It makes for nerve-wracking days as we wait for the tests and then as we wait for the results. This is just the start of several tests, so we won't have results for a week and a half. Next week we'll do Panorex (hopefully we can fit that in somewhere) and ENT follow up Tuesday and Heart Echo and EKG on Friday. Then, the following Tuesday, we'll get the results.

This is all tempered with all that Gage and his family are going through. His most recent Ewing's scans showed something. They've been through additional tests, tumor removal, biopsy, etc... The biopsy results are in today and show that it is Ewing's recurrence. Tomorrow they will be meeting with their doctor to discuss the results and the treatment. Please pray for them as they deal with this.

Thank you for your friendship and love for our family. We know that is how we make it through each day, especially the fretful and otherwise difficult ones. We hope you know how much you mean to us!

I just discovered this option to communicate with you. I'm not very computer savvy. I read your page regularly. The kids and I pray for you almost every day. We are asking God to be the source of your strength as you await news of Rebekah's health and work to rebuild your house. We love you, Darlene
