Well where do we begin? On December 4th, 2010 we received some news every parent dreads to hear. Our sweet baby girl Paxten Reede Pearson, born March 10, 2010 has leukemia. Our world was turned upside down, however, we know that our God is a God of miracles and he made our sweet pea a fighter. If anyone knows miss Paxten, than you know if anyone can beat this awful disease, it is her. We began this website to keep everyone updated on her progress.
In mid-October we noticed Paxten had a strange red bump growing over her right eye. We took her to two specialists and they both believed it was just a benign lesion that would go away on its own. We didn't think too much of it. Then on December 3rd, we noticed that her lymph nodes in her neck were extremely swollen and she had several unexplainable bruises on the top of her head.
Blake and I knew something was just not right so on Saturday, December 4th we brought her into the Wesley Hospital Emergency Room. They drew some blood and ran a few tests; the results from these tests came to an ugly conclusion...Paxten has Leukemia. Of course we did what any parents would do, we got mad, we cried, we asked why and then we asked what it will take to cure this disease.
That brings us to today.
