The "C" Word

On Christmas Eve we learned that our 11 year old niece has cancer. The prognosis is wonderful for a full recovery, but she will be undergoing chemo for the next 10 months. We are doing what we can to help cheer her up.

To say it's been a stressful time over the past year for our family is a bit of an understatement. Between my dear SIL having a brain tumor removed, and suffering serious side effects from it, to my husband having some unknown problems that we are still trying to get resolved, and now for our sweet niece to have cancer, it's a bit much.

Posting may be a bit light around here for a bit while we regain our bearings, but of course life goes on. There is joy in our hearts that while things might be tough, they could be so much worse.

Meanwhile if any of you have ideas for care package items (we have some seriously fun hats that I will share once they have been given) for a young girl, please let me know! We want to make this as easy as we can for her.

  1. I'm sorry that your family and a sweet child are going through all this. If she's having chemo she'll need a good cheery blanket, somethings to keep her occupied, and what about maybe a kit of some kind (like knitting, or drawing, or something) to keep her mind off it and looking forward. When my mama had chemo the only thing she could eat were lime real fruit popsicles. Ya'll are in our prayers.
