Another quick update. Josh and Gramma go to Pittsburgh together again this coming Thursday. This will be Jon's mom's halfway point. Also a no-spinal month for Josh. Another 'quick' visit and done.

On Tuesday, Josh (and us) were invited to walk in the LIGHT THE NIGHT Leukemia and Lymphoma cancer survivor walk. We just learned of it last week and I need to get busy collecting donations for that drive. 100 bucks and we get a free t-shirt - LOL - that's our goal! Hehehe

You can check out our fundraising progress or make a donation through the following link: LIGHT THE NIGHT

This coming Thursday [same day as our clinic appt] Josh (and family) is invited to meet with other local MAKE -A- WISH familes at Splash Lagoon (indoor water park). The kids are excited, and I think Josh will enjoy meeting other children his age. I imagine Travis, his friend from clinic who used to live a couple blocks from us, will be there too.

So much for short and sweet... oh well...

I wanted to add, the picture above, is from Josh's grandma's first chemo visit back in July. It's a little hard to read, but Josh's shirt says, 'Me and my Gramma Busy Kickin' Cancer's Butt!' and mom's says, 'Me and my Grandson Busy Kickin Cancer's Butt!'

They say it all!



Surviving Cancer one day at a time!

Short and Sweet

The Picture to the right is a picture of my best friend - Alina's son, Mikey and of course Josh and Nate. They came all the way across the state, from Palm, PA to visit. Mikey has an older sister that is a year younger than Kaitlynn, Theresa. We had a wonderful time and all the kids hit it off right away and got along so well.

Notice the time... so I'll make this quick. Gramma and Josh now go to P-burgh together. The 21st of this month will be mom's 3rd visit and she will be half way done with this stage of treatment. I believe Josh thinks she is very brave and tough like him and is happy to have a chemo-partner.

Not a long post today, and sorry since it's been so long since I've last updated. Remember to sign the guestbook, it's nice to know someone is actually reading. It's my incentive. Although, looking at the counter... We can feel the love!
