Grace’s Story

Site created on August 1, 2019

Grace is the youngest of our four girls and loves Jesus, playing with her friends, reading books, jumping on trampolines and playing with toys. She was diagnosed with leukemia in late July, 2019 and this journal is part of her journey. If you would like to give financially to her medical care you can visit Thanks for praying for little Gracie!

Day 290

We want to thank you for your continued prayers for Grace.  It's been a few weeks since I have last written and although this next phase is a long one, there shouldn't be too many bumps along the way.  The treatment is fairly predictable, the medication doesn't change, and by October of 2021 we are trusting God that we will move forward cancer-free and ready for whatever is next.  We aren't taking this blessing for granted. There are many, many children that struggle with the "Maintenance Phase" but so far Grace is flying through with no major obstacles.  

The biggest thing we are processing right now is the possible impact of COVID-19 on Grace and the extent to which we need to stay quarantined.  It seems that a few early studies have shown there is minimal impact on children with blood cancer but the sample size isn't very large and the margin for error is probably high. No doubt, we will have to use discernment like so many of you and make an informed decision on how to move forward. 

In terms of updates to our Caring Bridge site, I will probably move to weekly updates unless there are specific requests that God brings to mind.  We will try to post pictures of "normal" life for Grace and the family.  She really is doing much better and we are so grateful for our team of prayer warriors interceding on her behalf. 

Thank you again for lifting up Grace and our family, 
Jon and Katie
