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...

quick Landon update

Please keep the family in your prayers Tuesday. Landon will be having surgery some time Tuesday morning, a time has not been given.

Landon's left kidney has been completely destroyed from the cancer so it will be removed in full. He will also have a port placed so that when he heals he can start chemotherapy...around 18-24 weeks of treatment.

Now that they know what is going on and have a treatment plan I know that things will start to look up for them, as much as they can when your baby has cancer, but please keep them in prayer. This is probably (and I hope) the toughest battle they have to face as a family and as isn't easy but it is something they will beat and overcome...they just need a lot of support, hope, faith, and love. So many of you have been sending notes of concern for them, and they are strangers to you...that is the amazing thing about the human spirit - we just come together when we need to and I thank you for that. Courtney has been an amazing friend to me.

Thank you to all who have put Landon on your prayer list, circle, and chains - I can feel the power of prayer working for him already. He is such a tough kid, Eric and Courtney - he gets that from you I hope you know!!

I will post updates as I know them. I know in my heart and soul that he will be will be a journey, but he will prevail!!
