My Story

Quinn was diagnosed with neuroblastoma on 11/12/12. I remember the day like it was yesterday. The room that we were sitting in, when the doctor came, the delivery of the news, and the moments after hearing the diagnosis. After that moment things moved fast! It was a new reality having to learn very quickly about the new medical terminology the treatment options and dreaded side effects to watch out for on the horizon. We had the surgery to install his central line and began cycle 1 of chemotherapy on 11/16/12. Since that day the Lord has brought me and my family through various struggles and provided us with strength and comfort in the middle of our circumstances to know that, "God doesn't make mistakes." One day we will look back on these moments to see with clarity how it has worked out for God's glory. We were originally given an 18 mos treatment plan, but it has been a broken road to get to this point. We have just 1 more cycle of treatment remaining and I pray to hear that new glorious diagnosis from the Doctor of, "There is no evidence of disease, " in his body. My family has been changed forever, my outlook on the world has been changed forever, my focus in life has been changed forever. There were numerous people, family, freinds, and strangers, that came into our lives during this journey that have helped immensely. I can't express with words, and I can't pay them back in dollars, for their priceless support. The only appropriate way to respond to the countless gifts of love that we have received is to pay it forward with fundraising and awareness through the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
