Konner is Officially walking. I am so proud of him and his accomplishment. He literally just started this weekend. Walking everywhere! This is big for us. Originally they thought he made need therapy. But he has proved them wrong once again. Cancer is not winning this battle. Konner is kicking Cancer's butt. He is a happy baby and is doing so well lately. He loves his brothers and our new dog Nala. He tries to lay in her bed with her all the time. He likes to play with his dad's PS3 controller and takes it away at times. He also like to press the buttons on our computers (this seems to be his favorite). We are so thankful for Konner and what he has brought to our family. He is just a happy baby and it brings faith to my life. He has been through alot but he does not let it affect him. Happy wednesday to you all!

Yesterday I heard about the passing of Jenna Miller. Back in October of last year the Miller family introduced themselves to me at Konner's dinner benefit. They were such a nice family and they shared their story with me about their little girl named Jenna. Jenna was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma and was putting up a strong fight. They were so positive and things were going good for her. I could feel the faith and strength these people had. They gave me so much confidence that Konner can beat this cancer. In january of this year Jenna took a turn for the worse and they learned that she had relapsed with a brain tumor, which is a common relapse area for Neuroblastoma. Once you relapse with Neuroblastoma there is NO KNOWN CURE!!! Jenna had been having good and bad days and unfortunately she is now an Angel. She did not lose her battle with cancer. Her body did. Jenna was a warrior and never let this cancer take her down. She went out with grace and love and with her parents beside her. She is inspiration to me and my family. If you would like to read about Jenna and her brave battle CLICK HERE. To The Miller Family, My heart and Prayers are with you. I will always remember Jenna. Thank You for coming up to me that day, you have made an impact in my life. Thank you and God Bless You!!

This breaks my heart. I cant believe that there is no known cure after relapse for this childhood cancer. Something needs to be done!  Our Children are losing their lives! They are not getting a chance to grow up and be adults, get married, have kids, experience what we all get to have. They are instead in the hospital getting poisoned with medicine in order to cure their cancer. I am saddened that I have yet again been impacted by another loss. I can not imagine what those families are feeling. Today I am grateful to have my Konner doing good. He has had his time dealing with this cancer devil and today because of the great doctors at Phoenix Children's Hospital he has a chance at having a normal childhood. I just will continue to pray and have faith and hope that he never relapse's once he is NED. I pray for the day that the doctor classifies Konner as NED. That day will be a holiday for the rest of our lives. Because that day is the day Konner will beat his cancer.

Results from scans done on 3/17/2011

So today was our last day at UNM and I am happy to say Thank you but Here we Come PCH and We are so Happy about this move and change in Konner's treatment!!

Konner's scan results came back good. So I think... The doctor said everything looks good may be a little smaller... Um ok I will take your Maybe and head to PCH for better care. All I can say is that Konner seems to be heading in the right direction. He is a happy 1 year old and is getting healthier and is fighting his way to being Cancer free!

He is a Warrior!!!
