Christmas Update! 🎁 ❤️💚🙏🏻✨ 12/27/19

We all had an amazing Christmas HOME with family! Prayers were answered and Grady was feeling well and very energetic!

Thank you to each and everyone of you who helped make this Christmas so special! We have struggled with how to thank everyone properly. Please know nothing has gone unnoticed or unappreciated. We received so many gifts for the kids and Jason and I. Financial support, not only for Grady’s care but for Christmas and date nights for us. Many of you have brought meals or asked for my grocery list.
The GoFundMe has blown us away. Our local Farmers Market community all pitched in to support us.
And we were beyond blessed and humbled to receive a very large check from our entire Phoenix community on Christmas Day. A local bar (McKenzie’s Midtown Tavern) held a fundraiser and our community gifted us over $20,000! 😭🙏🏻❤️💚 Jason and I have never felt alone in this. Thank you all!

We also received news the day after Christmas that Grady’s treatment is going according to plan. His tumor has shrunk as hoped! He will have two more cycles of
Chemo, followed by surgery. A short recovery and then radiation will complete treatment. That’s the plan and we’re sticking’ to it!! 🙌🏻 This is incredible news as less than half of PMMTI cases responded well to the chemo treatment.

Update • 12/09/19 ❤️💚

Here is a video of Grady two days ago. Wow what a difference 2 days can make. 

Today was very different, definitely a harder day, seeing Grady so lethargic, just laying on me most of the day. We headed back to the ER Sunday night, Grady had a fever. This is unfortunately becoming a common thing for him after chemo weeks. He was admitted again. Fluids, antibiotics, blood transfusion, other things no one wants to read about on social media 💩 , and finally a chocolate doughnut 🍩, and he was feeling a little better by dinner time tonight. Let’s pray the fever stays gone. It makes for long nights when the nurses and doctors are constantly monitoring him. We expect to be here 3-5 days. And we really really pray we get a Hospital break over Christmas 🎄!

Update • 12/03/19 • Grady on the News 🚲

Click * HERE * to see what an awesome community we have. Grady was on the news last night. A local bar is raising money for him. I love to see how the restaurant industry is getting behind Jason and supporting him through this! He has so many restaurant/bar regulars always asking him how things are going and helping him any way they can. Thank you all so much. 💚❤️
