This summer our cousins who we love came to visit us at the lake with their kids.
I marveled at the wonder of my sweet cousin’s daughter who has been in cancer remission for a couple years, and how amazing that must be for that family to be gradually, cautiously shifting away from so much heartache for so long. (I wrote about her back HERE and her end-of-cancer clip is HERE.) She ran around and played with the kids and my girls were so excited that she and a couple other cousins got to sleep over.
Sadly, we found out a couple weeks later that she has relapsed and the cancer is back. I read the email from my mom telling us the news aloud to my girls through tears. Their jaws dropped and there was a moment of deep still, sadness. How my heart aches for this poor family and what this means to them.
But they are strong, and filled with love and they are going to beat this thing.
Many more details on their “Kisses for Cami” blog HERE.
Right now they are hoping with all their hearts to find a bone marrow donor match to help save Cami’s life. Here’s a news clip with the information:
Dave and I are awaiting our swab kits to become donors. I just wanted to help spread the word to see if others are interested. How amazing would it be to be a perfect match for Cami or so many thousands of others who are waiting for a marrow match to save their lives?
We love you and your fighting spirit, Cami! And we love your strong family as well. We are cheering for you and sending up prayers upon prayers to Heaven.
