One of my Arf Brothers sent me this link.  I’m happy to give what I can.

In April my 20 year old stepdaughter had a seizure during her third seizure she somehow drove 20 miles to our house (she barely made it).  The er preformed an mri and immediately sent her by ambulance to the trauma center.  Two weeks later they operated and removed what they could of the tumor.  A dirty OR caused her to catch an infection which required a second surgery and a plate to be installed.  

She went through chemo and proton radiation.  She’s stubborn so she went back to work and moved back out.  She’s still taking chemo once a month and is fairly tired during the chemo but she’s strong enough to work and fought off covid in three days.  

I know every tumor is different but these days more and more people are having great outcomes.  I’m thankful of the support I received from my friends here at Arfcom.

My family will be praying for strength for your dear daughter and your family.  

God Bless and Happy Thanksgiving

Hit.  Prayers that this all turns out to be a story Cal ends up telling her children someday, when they're scared about going to the hospital.

Hit for the arfcom brotherhood.

9 year old girls shouldn’t have to deal with this sort of thing.

But yours will and she’ll be stronger for it.

Happy thanksgiving.

Cal had her surgery to get the chemo port installed yesterday. It's considered a relatively minor procedure, but it still was worrisome since they cut open her chest/neck and threaded a catheter into her jugular vein. After the surgery, they did her first chemo infusion which went well. Thanks for the support, well wishes, and prayers!

Another $87 donated YO.

I wouldn't have seen this, nor contributed if I didn't meet @BrowardMason on a FTF deal 10 years ago. The power of a community.
