End of treatment!

Last week, Claire had all of her end of treatment scans. It was a long week of waiting for results to come in, but we received the news we were hoping for - No Evidence of Disease!  Claire will continue to get scans over the course of the next few years to ensure the disease has not returned, but we are so very happy that she has continued to remain free of disease. 

Today, after 491 days, Claire got her central line removed from her chest. This event marked the last step in Claire’s cancer treatment protocol. It was a surgical procedure, but it went pretty quickly. Our favorite surgeon, Dr. Le, decorated the bandage as a baby unicorn for Claire - he is very talented!  He also had some very nice things to say to Claire. Just another example of how Claire’s medical team has been so good to her during her journey. 

Claire is excited to swim and enjoy getting back to being a kid.  She will even be able to rejoin her soccer team this Spring. She’s excited to see her teammates and coaches!  

We are very thankful for all of the love and support that we’ve received throughout this 17 month journey. It helped us stay strong and kept us going!  We will never be able to put into words how much that meant to us. 

Thank you all,
The Olson’s
