Update • 09/14/19



I want to start by thanking everyone for all the support and prayers as we wrestled through this past few weeks! It has meant the world to Jason and I. ❤️

We have decided to move forward with Chemotherapy for Grady. We have had doctors across the country review his case. Typically they have presented him in front of sarcoma groups and conferences. We have to move forward trusting our doctors. It's a hard choice knowing all the not-so-great side effects of chemo. At this point, anyone who sees Grady would think he is nothing shy of a healthy, happy, energetic 2 year old.

We are waiting for health insurance before Grady starts his treatment. We expect that will be within 1-3 weeks. This is messy and complicated. I don't want to share publicly on the world wide web but I'm more than willing to share if you're interested.  Maybe some of you have this all figured out!

It sounds like Grady's treatment plan will consist of chemo once a week for 6 months. The plan is that it will all be outpatient, so that's good news. He will have to get a port installed first. (Installed? I don't know🀣.) We plan to finish treatment with radiation.

Please pray for our family as we navigate what this temporary journey will look like. Please pray for Grady's big brother Reece, that he understands what's going on and expresses his emotions in a positive way. His best friend and playmate is about to get very sick.

Again, thank you. We need every one of you.
