MARCHing On

So it turns out that those PEG shots were a little nastier than the first time around, but as of today, Georgia has bounced back. Just in time to head back to the clinic tomorrow! She's got another LP-ITC and some IV medicine, and then she's off until Tuesday. Yay! Plus we're looking forward to a visit from her great grandmother and aunts this weekend, hopefully with some lovely Austin, Texas weather!

Also on the horizon - St. Baldrick's! Seventeen more days of hair! I recently learned that one of the recipients of a multi-million dollar research grant from St. Baldrick's is Children's Oncology Group, which is conducting the clinical trial that Georgia is participating in right now. So knowing that she has directly benefited from funds raised through St. Baldrick's makes us even more determined to help "Shave the Way to Conquer Kids' Cancer!" PLEASE join us by clicking on the picture in the sidebar and making a donation. Spread the word to your family, your co-workers, your real friends, and your Facebook friends - we're almost half-way to our goal, and every little bit counts! And we're still recruiting team members, so Be Brave! Get BALD! Thanks everyone!

  3. Hi Georgia,
    My name is Cynthia and I am a friend of your grandmother Leslie Hunt. I have met you and your sister Ivy a couple of times before, but you probably don't remember me. I live in Austin, Texas like you, but I am in Sydney, Australia right now. I wanted to send you a note of well wishes from Down Under and would like to visit you when I return home.

    I'm kind of new to this technology that you seem to be so advanced in, so let me know how I can send some photos to you, I want to take some pictures of kolas just for you!!

    Hugs and Kisses
    Cynthia

  4. Hi Georgia,

    My name is Steve Johnson and while I used to live in Texas (?round Rock) I am now traveling to riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I thought you might like to add another country to your list, so I wanted to make sure I wrote to you while I was here.

    I wish you the very best of luck and wanted to let you know that our whole family is rooting for you.

    Hang in there....

    Steve
