On Monday, we will be taking Charlotte to New York, to Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital. We will be seeing doctors that eat, sleep, and breathe Neuroblastoma. When our oncologist made me feel hopeless, our new doctor told me not to lose hope. She said “This is what we do, this is why people come to us.”
It’s been a busy few days of packing and trying to tie up all loose ends. We have no idea how long we will be there. There are a few treatment options and we will be discussing them when we arrive. We have an appointment on Monday, scans on Tuesday, pre surgery on Wednesday, and surgery to FINALLY remove the main tumor on Thursday! This is something that I have been in constant prayer for, surgery has been postponed way too many times.
Thank you for your prayers. THIS is an answered prayer. Charlotte will be in the hands of specialist. Doctors that see children from all over the world with neuroblastoma.
Please pray for:
-Gods hand on the doctors and surgeons
-Clarity for Tyler and I
-Everything with the insurance goes through to help with expenses
-A smooth transition for Charlotte, as this will all be new and unfamiliar
“Lord my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.”
Charlotte has had great days. She is happy and it’s such a blessing to see. We surprised her with a date out of town, to lunch, the Disney store, and Frozen on Ice with her best friend. She was ecstatic! Hearing those girls laugh uncontrollably was truly the best thing I’ve heard or seen in a while.
Thank you all for your continued support.
“But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.”
Psalm 59:16 NIV

Hallelujah ! Praise jesus! ! this is amazing news! we have been standing and believing in Charlotte’s healing and are so thankful to hear this update.. recently, one of our friends who has been standing and fighting with us for Abel’s (our little boy) healing miracle told us about her victory over a brain tumor she had several years ago. she said that we need to “divorce ” our expectations of what his healing looks like and to just rest in knowing that it’s already finished because jesus said so. I just wanted to pass along the words of wisdom since they helped us so much. I don’t care how it looks or how long it takes, I know our baby boy Abel is healed and this is not his destiny but rather his testimony. I believe and settle in my mind that the matter is the same for Charlotte. This is NOT her destiny, it’s her testimony! Amen!

HOPE and FAITH WORD:
It is in the times of pain and trouble that you will discover the condition of your spirit. The difference between a strong spirit and a weak spirit is in what you feed it. If you feed your spirit fear, doubt and unbelief then, when trouble or pain comes, you will be overcome. But if you have a healthy spiritual life in God’s Word, in his House and regularly in his presence, you will have faith and confidence in him, despite the circumstances. That doesn’t mean that you won’t experience heartache and disappointment, but it does mean that you will have faith to endure and hope for the future. Without hope, your life will eventually drift off course and onto the ‘rocks’ of despair and hopelessness. That is no way to live.
A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. (Ephesians 6:10 NLT)
