September 3rd, 2013

This was Ella exactly 1 year ago.  Hard to believe this is her today:

Head full of red curls and she always says"Mom, I LIKE my hair CrAzY!".  Still, I KNOW we are the lucky ones.  Ella completed treatment.  The anniversary of her diagnosis came and went this year and I didn't give it a second thought. Other parents, are not that lucky. I see them in the halls as we go for Ella's monthly check ups.  I see it in their eyes.  The tired smiles that are exchanged in the halls between patient rooms, with a glimmer of hope in each. I don't want any child to have to go through what my girl did.  So, this year, we walk.  CureSearch is the organization that designed and researched the treatments that are currently being used for Childhood Cancer.
I encourage you to walk with us if your local, or think about skipping your morning coffee and donating.  Every dollar helps.  This year I am on the committee for the Chicago walk and I will be the photographer again, so I will post photos.  Here is the link to Ella's page if your interested.  Feel free to share with your friends!  We walk this Saturday.  Thank you to everyone that has donated and can walk with us! We are truly blessed for your support!

Blessings~Katie and Ella!
