The last week of August my husband and I went to St. Jude with my son for his 3 month check.
For those of you who don’t know, Jordan is a brain tumor survivor.
He was treated at St. Jude 7 years years ago, and continues to beat all the odds.
For this we give thanks daily!
We are from Louisiana and had a visitor heading our way during that very week we were at St. Jude. His name was Hurricane Isaac!
Because of the storm, my son, daughter in love and family came up to stay with us in Memphis.
(These flags represent the countries of the children treated at St. Jude)
They have been wanting to visit St. Jude for some time, and this was the perfect opportunity.
Jordan loved the company of having his two nieces with him while we were in Memphis.
St. Jude is one amazing place of hope!
Did you know that September is the Childhood Cancer Awareness month?
On average, 46 kids are diagnosed with pediatric cancer…Every. Single. Day. And 7 more will die from it! Those are alarming statistics!
These were the kinds of things we were never aware of until we heard those dreadful words 8 years ago, “Your son has a brain tumor!”.
But for now we can celebrate the great news that everything is stable, and we don’t need to go back until February.
Thank God for the vision Danny Thomas had and the promise he made.
On September 24th Chili’s will donate 100% of their profits nationwide to St. Jude. Please join us for a night out to have dinner, and at the same time help support this great cause to raise funds for research. We must find a cure!
