5 Years!

     5 years ago, right after Christmas we were given some unexpected, life changing news.  Our 11 month old daughter had a brain tumor and the prognosis was not good.  We were given a 25% chance of her surviving 5 years .  Since that day,  Avery has had over 10 surgery's, has done 4 different Chemo regimens, 72 days of radiation, and has traveled to 4 different states to do this.  It's hard to believe that it has been 5 years since we started this journey.  It's even harder to think that another family will inevitably start the same path tomorrow.  We want to thank everyone for all the support you have given us over the past five years.  There is no way we could have done it with out you.  We thank God everyday that we still get to see Avery's smile each morning. She has touched so many lives and continues to amaze us everyday.  It's been 33 months since Avery's last treatment, and while each day she deals with deficits from her treatment, there isn't a day that goes by that we regret our decisions to fight.  She is a warrior, a miracle, but above all else a survivor.
