Please pray for Ava. She is getting an MRI done of her brain and thecal sac. We hope that we don't find any chloromas in her brain. We also pray that the tumor in her thecal sac is in an easy location to radiate.

Ava will not be sedated for the MRI because she will need to be sedated tomorrow for a bone marrow biopsy and on Saturday for her line placement. During the PET scan yesterday, Ava had a difficult time laying still due to the pain from the tumors in her neck area. We need her to lay still and to cooperate so that the doctors can have all the information they need to begin treatment. Thank you so much for your prayers.

Also, we had the great privilege of being interviewed for a video showing the wonderful things that Cal's Angels is doing and how you can get involved. The Sutter family is amazing and they have used their pain to fuel their desire to bring joy and memories to cancer families in the Chicagoland area. Go to Cal's Angels to learn more about their story. If you ever are looking for a quality organization to donate to, this is the one. They have been a major blessing and key players in our journey. If you watch all the way through, you will find a sweet surprise at the end!
