Elise’s Story

Site created on October 21, 2019

Welcome to Elise’s CaringBridge website.  Donations to the site go to CaringBridge and not to us.  We are not asking for donations at this time.  We are using this site to keep people updated on Elise’s journey, allow a forum for people to leave messages/questions, and to streamline communication.   Feel to leave Elise a quick note and well wish each time you visit the site!

Our world got turned upside down while on vacation... we had planned to visit six different national parks and doing some hiking, yet we found ourselves in the familiar stomping grounds of Mayo Clinic learning about a different journey we’d need to undertake.   More details and updates to come in the journal section...

Journal entry by Nathan Campbell

Great news to share today!  Elise met with her doctor this morning at Mayo to review the results of her bone marrow biopsy - LEUKEMIA FREE!!  This is obviously fantastic news and the ideal outcome of the stem cell transplant process and we are overjoyed.  Sarah's bone marrow is kicking some serious tail!  She still has some hurdles/challenges to deal with in the coming weeks, but those pale in comparison to the the alternative outcome.

I just want to share my continued amazement of Elise's fight, spirit, and attitude!  As I told everyone in October, Elise is tough and resilient and if anyone can overcome it it'd be her!  So proud of my wife!!   I am also so thankful for the support from everyone during this journey - we never felt alone and knew we had an army of folks praying for her!  Special thank you to Tim and Lynn who have been absolutely incredible in their generosity and unwavering support!

She will stay in up at her folks through May at least, thanks COVID-19, but we will be looking to throw a party once she can come back to Tucson and it's safe to interact again. 

God is good all the time!
