I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

Kristen needs your Prayers
I hoped this day would never come. As a cancer mom the fear that you might hear the R word NEVER leaves your mind. This time I am talking about the word RELAPSE. I hate hate hate that word. You would think 3 times is enough one time is enough... better yet no child should EVER have to deal with cancer. It looks like we are are about to hit it for the 4th time. I seriously can't believe i just said that. One month ago Kristen finally had some good blood counts. Going into today for a routine blood test seemed just that...routine, but as the results came in several hours later it was anything but routine. Kristen has been feeling GREAT. Really there has been no outward appearance of the MONSTER that has once again taken a hold of her body. As I type this I can hardly see the keyboard through the tears, but I believe in the power of prayer and I have met many friends here and tonight Kristen needs prayers. The doctor called this afternoon with the results...yeah the doctor that was the first sign that something was up. I think his words went something like this..."I am calling with the results of Kristen's blood test, the lab called and they found blasts in her blood, so we will need to do a bone marrow biopsy in the morning to confirm it." In my heart it's already confirmed, I mean blasts in her blood is hard to mistake for something else. I have no Idea what the plan will be or even what we are dealing with I just know that my little angel needs your prayers, so please Say a Little Prayer for Her.
