In April, 2010, when Andrew was 2 1/2, a tumor was discovered behind his eye. The tumor was removed, but it was found to be an aggressive cancer. He endured seven months of chemo and six weeks radiation. In December of 2010, the day after his last treatment, he was rushed to the ER with an almost fatal bacterial infection. He survived.

He is now seven-years-old!! I don't visit here much, because during the ordeal, this is where I dumped everything--my rage, my fear, my sadness, my ugly, my hope, my everything. But I want all of you who supported and prayed for us to hear his updates. You helped me survive, and I am deeply thankful. Every once in awhile, I will check in to let you know how he's doing. Please continue to pray that cancer will never return to his body. Thank you.


Thanks to the sweet kindness of Stacia at Fluffy Bunnies, Andrew has been collecting hats.  I have attempted to put all of the hat links here.  I will try to eventually put each picture here, for now most are just links.   Hopefully I have not missed any!! I want to thank each and every one of you who have sent us one.  You all are amazing.  Our family has been so overwhelmed and in awe of your kindness.  Thank you all so much.
