Thank you for taking time to follow Meaghan's journey of healing as she battles Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer.

Meaghan, our five year old daughter, was diagnosed early November 2009 after an MRI revealed she had a 4 cm solid tumor in her cerebellum. The tumor resection, while successful, resulted in serious complications.

Cancer is a family affair and here I try to chronicle not only Meg's journey, but our whole family's as well.

Day by Day

We are on day two of radiation treatment. Praise God, Meaghan seems to be handling it well. She comes back with a headache, but thanks to the preventative approach of her medical staff, Meaghan has not yet been burden with nausea or vomiting.

Meg was able to handle four therapy sessions yesterday and five today. She is one tired trooper! We are so proud of her!

Meaghan even had time to squeeze in a visit to the ophthalmologist. Structurally, everything looks fine and there is no pressure on either of the eyes.

Two radiation treatments down, 28 more to go...

Many, many thanks to you all for your support. Please pray for the following:
  • safe transport to and from radiation treatments, especially with inclement weather
  • precise delivery of radiation treatments
  • that her mediport line remain free from clots, contaminants and infection
  • that Meaghan sleeps well during the night so she has the strength for her days
  • that Meaghan stays in good spirits
  • a special prayer for Ethan and Madison: they desperately miss their sister and are struggling to find joy this Christmas.
