September 11th, 2013. Day +915. Three years since diagnosis.   3 comments

IIMG_1438_1n some ways it seems like only yesterday and in other ways it feels like a lifetime ago.IMG_1447_1

We wanted to show you a picture of Charlotte with her “Hero Beads” that she received during her treatment.  Each one of these beads represents a medical procedure, test, or other significant step in her journey.  They include Cancer diagnosis, blood draws, X-rays, surgeries, hospital admissions, hair loss, CT scans, sedation, EKG, etc…
Charlotte’s favorite bead is the rainbow colored spikey ball in the center of her name beads.  It represents  Bone Marrow Transplant.  It’s one of our favorites as well!
We had to include a picture of Molly in here.  She is now about the same age Charlotte was when she was going through transplant, earning many of these beads.  We can’t believe how little Charlotte was during all of this.

We are so proud of our little girl.  And we are so thankful for the help and care we received along the way.  We thank God each day for our friends and families, the wonderful nurses and doctors at Dean, St Mary’s and AFCH and, of course, for Erin;  for we know He had a personal hand in bringing her to us.

  1. Such a brave little girl – it’s hard to imagine what Charlotte went through and by looking at her now you’d never know how sick she was.

    How fast they both are growing!

  2. What a road you have all walked! Fortunately the good Lord was walking right beside you the whole way.

  3. Great pictures of the girls! Still simply amazed by it all. Got 2 signs on this very special day…one from “walking guy” (of course :)) and one from 2 ladies who came to my door (Jehovah’s). Before they left, they asked if they could pray with me about anything and I told them we were “celebrating Charlotte today”. They said a nice prayer for her. I’ll take it! 🙂
