Lolly and Romy show their support

I'll add some more pictures (and a video, if I can figure out how!) to our Keepin' Georgia on Your Mind Facebook group, so you can head over there, too. We all had such a great time on Saturday and look forward to participating again next year ... any volunteers? : )

It's Spring Break around here, and Ivy is enjoying some quality time with Lolly and Poppa in San Antonio. Recently, she decided to share Georgia's story with her class at school and "invite their questions." She later reenacted the scene for us here:
I think that about covers it, don't you? Georgia got leukemia, she's better now, no one knows how she got it, but keep her on your mind. Just the facts, ma'am.
Georgia is gearing up for the clinic this week and St. Baldrick's this weekend. I, on the other hand, won't be participating on Saturday because - here's the big announcement - I'm shaving my head on Wednesday, St. Patrick's Day, on LIVE television! One of the organizers of St. Baldrick's was touched by Georgia's story and contacted us about doing an interview/shave to promote Saturday's event. Georgia thought it was a great idea, so I said yes and will be going bald on Wednesday at 8:30ish am on the local Fox channel. Anything for our girl!
We are SO close to edging out the top team for St. Baldrick's, so please donate! Our totals have far exceeded our expectations, but we want to raise as much as possible to help other kids who may not have had as much success in their treatment as Georgia has. Having a proven treatment plan to follow is incredibly comforting for all of us, and the fact that Georgia has responded so well, so quickly is not something we take for granted. Not everyone is blessed with the fairly smooth journey we've had so far, but with your help, we can make a difference in treatment options and cure rates, so please join us in "Shaving the Way to Conquer Kids' Cancer!"
