Team Avery leaves for Disney tomorrow morning courtesy of the Make A Wish foundation! We are so excited to see her experience this wonderful place and are really looking forward to the memories we will make. We are lucky enough to have some friends and family joining us on the trip and we can't wait to share this experience with them. No worries...we'll post lots of pics this week.
On Tuesday we were asked to be part of a St Jude fundraiser at KU and we met some fantastic college kids who were committed to raising funds and awareness for our St Jude kids. Avery was a hit of course and made lots of new friends. We even got invites to a basketball game from the players themselves...Avery gots da hook up...as apparently Jayhawk basketball tickets are a hot commodity. Being the sports fanatic that I am....I had no clue. We are so grateful that we are able to attend functions like this to help raise awareness and funds. We will also be going to a concert on Nov 13 with Montegomery Gentry here in KC that is for anyone that is a Partner in Hope....KFKF is sponsoring this event and you can check it out on their website.
We received fantastic news today about our friend Megan. She had scans yesterday and she was all clear! Avery and Megan were in treatment together at St Jude and she finished treatment in January. We are also so excited that we will get to see her this week as she and her family live in Florida. Our other close friend Belle, just completed her radiation and is now back home with her family. She is doing well and we are so happy she is done! A win is a win in the cancer world...whether its your kid or not....we count them all, celebrate hard and prepare for the next round. So cheers to our friends for hitting that next hurdle and for being strong enough to keep going. We love you girls!!
