Gimme a "Z"

Z for ZERO! We got the call from Dr. Neff this morning - Georgia is in Remission! Let's say that again - Georgia is in Remission! The percentage of leukemia cells in her bone marrow is down to ZERO, and the Minimal Residual Disease test was negative, which is exactly what we wanted. So those bad cells have hit the road, Jack, and now we'll spend the next five-plus months making sure they don't come back no more, no more, no more, no more.

This is a huge first step on a long journey, and the hardest part is yet to come. But with Georgia's amazing strength and incredible grace, she's going to get there, and we hope you'll continue to walk along with her. Thanks again, everyone, and much love to all of you.

  37. YAAAAAAHOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!
    Nothing can beat you Georgia! Not a thing in the whole world! Nothing, certainly not ALL, stands a chance against you, especially when you've got so many people backing you up! God answers prayers: He's answered ours, at least I believe so. But what matters the most is that you are in REMISSION! WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!
