On 12-29-17, had a treatment and an MRI because my head was hurting... and thank God they found nothing wrong and all looks like it's going in the right direction.
2-19-18:
Only 2 more treatments after this one on 2-19-18... praying that after my last on, all my scans come back good. Then we will find out what's next.
Will keep updating as time goes on.




I had surgery on 2-17-17...the Dr. did the best she could to remove the cell attacking the bone on skull...it's in the back of my head...she could only get so much because my cells are close to a vein in my head and she didn't want to get too close..so, I will be starting my treatment on March 3rd... I will have blood work, then a port put in my chest for Chemo and after that, a MRI and then my first IV of Chemo.Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.

Hello again !!
Well, I got my first round of chemo on March 3rd along with the port operation. It was a long Friday but made it okay.. plus we had pizza from Geno's East in the evening.
It's Monday, 3 days later and so far so good. I spent the entire day with my best friend and we had a blast.We went to Chipolte and then to Dave n Busters.. tomorrow is back to school.
