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.

Many, Many Thanks

How do we begin to thank the multitude of generous strangers, co-workers, well-wishers, "Secret Santas," compassionate health care providers? We certainly wish we could acknowledge you all individually, but that task is beyond me for now.

In the beginning, we thought we could do this alone; that we wouldn't need meals brought or Secret Santas or the kindness of strangers. How wrong we were! The whole experience of receiving love from others, in its various forms, has been profound. And, really, that's what this has been receiving love.

I never realized how difficult it is to receive an act of love from someone outside my family. It's awkward, humbling, and very intimate. Have you let someone love you recently, in their own way?

Thank you for reaching out to Meaghan, to us. Thank you for sharing your love with us, in every form.
