Day 180

Today was an important day in Ava's BMT journey! She has reached 180 days post transplant and is doing better than ever. Her labs were drawn and sent to Seattle to see how much of her blood is her donor's. At this time, we are praying that we see 100% donor blood.

After 8 months of chemotherapy, Ava entered her BMT with a positive MRD. The first time she was MRD negative was right after transplant. Because her disease was so aggressive, we continue to pray that the cancer will never ever show up again to steal away any more time from her childhood, from our family, and from her future. Thank you for your continued prayers. Please continue to remember all the children that are fighting and those that have lost the long and hard battle against cancer.
