My Story

Faith was diagnosed with a pontine glioma at the age of 16 months old. The doctors at Childrens were suprised at how early we caught Faiths tumor because most kids with this tumor don't get diagnosed untill it has causes facial paralises. (sorry for spelling not hte best at it.). Faith underwnet high dose chem with stem cell rescuse. She went on an at home chemo did really well untill she caught RSV in 2007 and we almost lost her then. Being the fighter that she was she made it and walked out of the hospital on her own two feet which they said wouldn't happen. Then Faith went through radation with little problems. In April of 2009 Faith had a shunt placed to alievate pressure off her brain and then in May we found out the tumor spread in her brain and also to her spin. That was May 16, 2009. On May 31,2009 we lost the most perfect thing in our life. Faith was the most wonderful little girl. She was a princess to her father and I. Faith was so full of life and love. She touched every person that she had ever met. She loved to laugh and play. The most important thing to Faith was her family. Everything she did she wanted it done "as a family". That was her favorite saying. Faith loved to color if you came to our house and were having a bad day Faith would make sure to color you a picture that you could take with you when you left just so she could see you smile and brighten your day. She loved her little brother. There is not a day that goes by that we don't think about Faith. I miss my daughter so much that it hurts. I hope by doing this that Faith's story will help someone else. That is all Faith wanted was to help others so no one has to go through what she went through. Faith said that when she grew up she wanted to be a doctor to help kids cause no kid should ever have to hurt. I love you baby girl your my pink heart always!
