Hi All. Well, Christmas has come and gone, and the girls and I hope you all are healthy and happy. I, for one, am happy to have Christmas behind us for now. It was a little easier than I anticipated, after November being a bit of a crush with my birthday, Thanksgiving, and then Izzy's … Continue reading Holidays & Jams

Dear All - this is Bill, Heather's husband. As I believe everyone knows by now, our sweet Heather passed away peacefully in our home back on Friday August 10th. This continues to pain me and our girls beyond all belief, and I see no end. A few weeks prior, she mentioned to me that if … Continue reading Spirit Moves Through All Things……….

After 9 nine rounds of chemotherapy and a 3rd 21 day round of the Hdak inhibitor (the drug being tested on this clinical trial), tomorrow is my big scan day.
