It Continues On… “ENDLESS”

Novenber 24, 2017 Nathan had some great months in between my last update, he got back on the ice for Sled hockey, Dr pulled his line so he could attend classes with his friends; all was going well, slow but well as it should be for a now 16 year old who has battled cancer […]

What Cancer CAN DO…

Childhood cancer…it’s like no other illness, disease, or diagnosis you’ll ever receive…you hear all the things cancer CANNOT DO but let’s be realistic, how about what it CAN DO and it will do to many who try so hard to not let it happen… Cancer CAN: cripple love, shatter hope, corrode faith, destroy peace, kill friendship, […]

Tough Roads (Osteo x2 and t-MDS/Leukemia)

It’s been some time since an update and I truly apologize to all but it has been pretty rough this last month for Nathan and my time has been few and far between being able to update. So many think because Nathan has had his transplant and is home that all is said and done […]

Day -1 into Day 0 – aka: Transplant Day

We’ve been through day -1 and day 0 since I last updated… Long story short… day -1 was a day of rest for Nathan, no chemo’s or anything like that and I managed to get him out into the healing gardens for some great sunshine and fresh air. As the day went you could tell […]

Maintenance Chemo: controlling the cancer till Transplant

Another day and 3 more chemo injections today for my boy, day 2… its a bittersweet process: hate this whole thing but these injections Nathan has to receive is hopefully keeping the cancer cells from maturing from t-MDS to fullblown t-AML and thats very important for his transplant and progress. He started the injections yesterday […]
