September 6th, 2011. Day +179   2 comments

There was no clinic day again today so it will be a non eventful post, much like our last week.  We had a nice quiet holiday weekend at home.  CJ’s appointment was moved next week from Tuesday the 13th to Thursday the 15th so she can also be seen by the eye doctor that day to check for sicca.  So we will be waiting a couple more days for CBC numbers and the isolation test results.

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.  36 children are diagnosed with cancer every day.  1 in 5 of those will not survive.  Please consider coming to the Badger Childhood Cancer Networks 2nd annual Childhood Cancer Awareness Blood Drive, hosted by Prairie Creek Church in Sun Prairie.

Friday, September 23rd, 2011  1 pm to 6 pm

Prairie Creek Church,  6484 North Bird Street,  Sun Prairie, WI

Schedule an appointment today to donate!

1)  Call 608-825-2876  or  2)  visit www.redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code 4465

You can also register at the Blood Drive with Be The Match to be a potential bone marrow donor!

Charlotte needed blood 7 different times during her chemo rounds and BMT.  And she needed platelets on 18 different occasions during that time.  Where would she be today without the volunteers that donated?

On a sadder note, Ross (from Kansas City) died on Thursday the 1st.  Andrew (Amy’s friend’s nephew from Janesville) passed on Sunday the 4th.  We continue to pray for their families during this unimaginable time.

  1. I read this with such a mix of emotion – so happy for you all and sad for those who have not been as fortunate. I cannot imagine what it would be like but only hope and pray that they can trust in God.

  2. CJ looks great. It so comforting to see her looking so happy and she is such a cutie!

    This is the first time i have ever considered being a donor. Unfortunately Joe & I can’t due to health conditions. thank you for spreading the word!
