Chemotherapy and radiation starting today

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Becca and her parents have returned to CHOP. She is going through her first radiation treatment right now.

This morning, her parents had to put a pill in her mouth that is, essentially, poison. Chemotherapy is a carefully concocted potion of chemicals that, incorrectly dosed, could kill her. And they don't know for certain that this is the correct medicine.

Those of us, their friends and family, can only pray and offer our love and support. One of the ways that we are showing that support is to participate in the CureSearch Walk, a fundraiser for children's cancer research, on September 28. So far we have raised over $5000, and have 24 walkers signed up.

If you live in the Cleveland area, then consider walking. It would be wonderful to meet some of my local Sparkers. If not, and if you'd like to do something, consider making a donation to Team Becca.

(Be patient if the page takes a long time to load; it's just like that.)

    I like to think of my chemo as something that will save my life. Hopefully, Becca's chemo will do the same for her.

    I will be praying for all of you. I watched my wife go thru chemo 5 years ago due to stage 4 indometrial cancer. I am happy to say that she is now 5 years ned. That means no evidence of disease. Tell them to keep going strong.

    emoticon I'll light a candle when I go to Church. I wish I could participate in the walk but I will be out of town. If there are any others let me know and I will make sure that I am there.
