Great and Grateful

Today, Georgia is 3.5 years off treatment, with 1.5 to go until she is officially cancer-free. In other words, YAY!!! Yesterday's survivorship appointment went off without a hitch - her counts were perfect, her bone density has improved, and all signs continue to point to more of the same good news. We were very lucky to also have a nice visit with Dr. Neff, and it's clear that these two still enjoy talking about Harry Potter and sharing bad jokes. 

Our warrior and her shaman 

We never, never take for granted that Georgia is where she is now and that she has a very bright future ahead of her. How desperately we want that for all kids fighting cancer. One step in reaching that goal is by supporting our efforts for the St. Baldrick's Foundation, which not only funds research, but also infrastructure grants. Recently, our own clinic received one as part of a $2 million award, so local kids fighting cancer will now directly benefit from the generosity of donors like you, our Friends of Georgia. Thank you again - and again - for taking this journey with us and helping us raise awareness, hope, and funds for research. We couldn't do it without you!
