Be brave, sweet Reese. We pray that this chemotherapy works hard at your cancer, yet spares your bright spirit. We pray it won't hurt and we pray you won't remember it, if it does. We love you more than you know. We are here every step of the way. Love, Mommy and Daddy
Friends, thank you for your encouragement, kindness and prayers. We feel the love! Keep them coming. Today the marathon begins.
August 13, 2016.
The day that forever changed our world.
It is the day that Reese and our family started to beat cancer.
For the last two weeks, we’ve been in and out of the emergency room and doctors’ offices chasing the origin of numerous symptoms. We knew something wasn’t right with our gregarious 10-month old; we just didn’t have any answers.
Saturday morning, Reese had an MRI of her pelvic region. The initial scan would reveal a large mass. One hour after our lil angel went back for a routine MRI, the doctor would sit knee to knee with us and tell us Reese has cancer.
We were immediately admitted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. As we walked on to this highly specialized cancer unit at arguably one of the best pediatric hospitals in the country, we felt comforted by the incredible staff and facility yet terrified by the reality of our circumstances. In an instant, we became part of a new family that shared one common theme – we are the chosen ones to beat cancer.
We are so grateful to have such an incredible network of family and friends. The love and support Reese and our family feel is beyond words. Thank you to everyone who has reached out and lifted our baby up in prayer. Please keep going.
She is strong and a fighter…We are going to beat this. Reese is going to be healthy again soon. We are surrounding her with love and light and laughter.
With determination and love, Jenn and Grant
Ok, friends... I'm asking for an extra prayer for Reese this week as we start round 4 of chemotherapy. Thank you for lifting her up! This is our last round before surgery. Go Reese go! #supergirl #alwaysbebrave
Reese had a successful surgery today and is now resting up with pain meds for comfort. Thank you for your prayers for her health and wellness. We appreciate it tremendously! Time for healing begins now. Thanks to her rock star surgeon, Dr Megan Durham, the tumor is out. Thanks to her all star nurses, she's got loving hands to heal her. We are feeling so grateful for these strong, smart, unstoppable women for saving our little girl. And so grateful for God's hands in all of this. And so grateful for you, our extended family of amazing friends in this community. Thank you.
A warm welcome home for Reese today. Round one complete. Heartfelt thanks for your continued love, prayers and good juju. ????
Reese's note for you! Thank you for your love and prayers. Every note of encouragement, every good wish, every positive prayer, every heart emoji- thank you. Big day tomorrow and as we go into surgery, we are so thankful for your awesome energy.
