She is very active and loves to swim, rollerblade, and ride her bike. She’s in 2nd grade and is an excellent reader and speller. She loves playing video games with her big sister, Teagan and Dad. She is also a great helper in the kitchen with mom! Read Gracie's story
Macie
Macie is now five years cancer free from Wilm's Tumor. She finished her five years of routine maintenance in November, 2015 and friends and family came together to celebrate being officially cancer free. Macie loves second grade. She loves acting, singing and all things drama related.
Mia
Mia is now eleven years old. It has been five years since she was diagnosed with her brain tumor and was in remission.  Last fall we had a bit of a stumble and they detected a nodule on her thyroid.  After further testing it was determined to be cancerous and she had to have her thyroid removed and did one radioactive iodine therapy treatment as well.  They also detected a small nodule on her lung but they don't know what it is.  It has not grown in six months so they'll continue to watch it and do CT scans every six months along with her MRI scans and ultrasounds of the neck area.  All in all she's doing well.  Mia is in sixth grade and keeping up pretty well with her school work.  She takes piano lessons and enjoys a dance class once a week too.
