What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

nothing's gonna slow her down!


I hope all of you moms out there had a great mother’s day! I wanted to post something that day, but I wasn’t on the computer at all. I had a great mother’s day!

We started off the day with an early morning walk around the neighborhood – it was nice! Then for lunch we had a picnic in the park! Charli loved looking around at all that was going on. That evening Chad picked up Applebee’s for supper, and “did the dishes” after! Grandma and Grandpa Preister came for a visit, and so did Aunt Amanda & Uncle Brad.

Charli has been doing really well since her last treatment. She has a very bald spot on the back of her head, and is thin on the sides, but she has her top pretty well! So, I am going to push for a baby mohawk, but am guessing daddy will say no!

She has been a bit “off” the last day or so, but I think it has passed. Her counts seem to be doing well, so I am hoping it is not a sign of something to come.

Well, there are lots of pictures for you to enjoy!


I am going to go swimming for the first time today! This suit is from Grandma Preister



brrr, it was cold - but I didn't mind!! I had so much fun 'swimming' with daddy!
ha ha...check out the mohawk! mom said I should get one, but dad brushed it out a little later :-(




grandma & granpa preister came to visit me sunday night! we had fun!


these curtains are the best toys ever...I could TRY to use them as a blanket I bet....


I'm ready dad, let's go for a walk!



seriously mom, do I NEED another hat? You're right, I do look cute in them - but come on!




I SWEAR I like these glasses!!


I just prefer them in my mouth, and not on my nose!

daddy took this picture of me and mommy on mother's day!!

How awesome is it to get to celebrate Mother's Day for the first time? Charli "wears" her sunglasses the same way as Kaitlyn, in her mouth.

Sending you big hugs!

I loved all the pictures but especially the one with Brenda and Charlie,
Jonell's son Daniel has donated hair to Locks for Love and is growing his hair out again so he can donate it again. A good organization.
Does Charlie's hair look reddish in person? Love to all of you. Nell

Charli is so cute, Looks like you had a fun Mother's day. I follow a couple of other kids with cancer and found your website. It is always good when the kids are feeling well. May God be with you and bless you. Are you working through ST Jude? They seem to be a big help for a lot of kids
