Amplify Austin has come and gone in the last 24 hours, and the total raised for local non-profits is over $5.7 million! Several of the organizations that are near and dear to us raised a fair amount of funds, so we're thrilled that they will be able to continue providing services and support to families touched by childhood cancer. And you don't have to stop donating! Click these links to learn more about the Blood and Tissue Center of Central Texas, Dell Children's Medical Center Foundation, Make-A-Wish Central & South Texas, and the Austin Film Festival - which sponsors the teen infusion room at the clinic, as well as film camps for kids in treatment, like ...

Every one of those organizations, and many more, are deserving of your support, so please choose from the list of participating non-profits on the Amplify Austin page or donate to a local organization in your area. Every little bit makes a big, big difference - we know this firsthand - so thank you, thank you!

We got the results from Georgia's bone density scan and ankle x-ray, and it's a bit of a mixed bag. The ankle shows no fracture or other injury, and her bone density has increased by 22%! That said, it still remains below the 1st percentile for her age and weight, so we will definitely keep up the good work she's been doing and get further instructions from her team. We'll also count our blessings, and keep fundraising for research into safer, less-toxic treatments that can cure childhood cancers without harmful late-effects.

Have a good weekend, and thanks for always Keepin' Georgia on Your Mind!
