Updates on Zoey

Zoey is still getting her chemo but doing very well. She finally lost all of her hair but has the softest, cutest little head. She doesn't seem to mind one bit! Her whole family made the drive from Oklahoma to Illinois this past week to see family. She hadn't made any trips in awhile and we all missed them SO much. She did great. I served up a big pot of chilli for everyone and it was a hit with Zoey too. Her appetite has been decreased but it seems chili is one of those things you can entice her with.

My sister Vanessa has had a lot of stress including hitting a deer on the way to our mother's house from my house. When it rains it pours it seems. They are all ok though and it was a rental so they got it switched out and were on their way again. They couldn't stay long because Zoey needed to get her inpatient chemo. She has a lot of energy and she and little sister Althea love playing with my dogs Punzie and Sammy.

Oscar and Vanessa still need a lot of help getting to and from Zoey's treatments. We have the gofundme account which I will link here. Please donate even $1.00 if you can. We are thankful for anything. It helps with gas and food on her weekly chemo days.

Zoey is handling her chemo very well! She's spent this week in the hospital but will get to come home tomorrow and then come back for weekly treatments. She has oral chemo she will be taking as well. Please keep her in your prayers as she is at a high risk for infection during this induction phase of chemo. Also, there will be a lot of expenses with gas back and forth. We appreciate all of the donations. They will surely help! I still want to reach our goal of$5000 which is really a meager amount considering all that she's going through. There will be 2 1/2 years of treatments. This is gonna be a long fight so add her name to your prayer chains and please keep her there. Thank you all!!

Cancer Doesn't Care

My niece was diagnosed with Leukemia this week. She is 4 years old and her name is Zoey. This blog has always been about my own battle with lymphoma while pregnant. Mine and Gabbi's story. I am 9 years in remission and Gabbi is 9. We are doing great. So now, I'm dedicating my stories and updates to Zoey's Fight.This baby turns 5 tomorrow. She just had her first chemo, blood transfusions and platelets transfused. This is the sweetest little girl, the daughter of my sister Vanessa. Zoey's dad is Oscar. He's the most kind, happy, goofy, fun loving person you ever met. Vanessa loves unconditionally and gives so much of her heart to everyone. I will introduce you to them here. Follow Zoey's story here on my blog. Her fight has just started with Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia. Find it in your heart to consider a donation at their GoFundMe account.
