Visit Rebekah's Page to get updates, read messages and send messages to Rebekah and her family through comments. 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.

cANCER FREE

Yes, you read that right. 769 posts, and close to a quarter of a million visitors later, we can now happily say something that we honestly were not sure we would ever be able to say.

REBEKAH IS OFFICIALLY cANCER FREE.

5 years after our last treatment with no apparent signs of cancer means, according to the doctor we spoke with today, that Rebekah has been cured of cancer.

There are a lot of other issues and a lot of future risks, but for now they seem like nothing.

Thank you Lord for taking care of this little child of yours.

Although I don't personally know you I have been following your blog for the last couple of years. Rebekah is a precious child of God and I am so happy you have been given such great news. I will continue to pray for your and your family. I wish that we lived closer because I would love to be able to volunteer to help with the girls so you can spend more time with Frances. God bless your family.

Hello Scott, Laura Matteson here. Just wanted to let you know that I have been following your page and I am so glad for the good news. I also wanted to let you know that McKenna is cortisol deficient also and although it is somewhat of a pain to deal with when she is sick the daily effort is no more than taking an extra 2 pills a day. The difference though is AMAZING! McKenna is a different child on the cortisol than when she was low...way more energy, feels better, eats better,.... growing a little. It might just do Rebecca good. God Bless, Laura
