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...

calling for prayers...

Please send this prayer request out on behalf of my friend Courtney...

Yesterday Sara Todd found out she had bone cancer all over her body. She fell and broke her hip and had surgery this weekend and that is how they found it. She is the one that started a huge prayer chain for Landon in Kentucky. Just letting you know so maybe we can all return the prayer favor for her and his family!!!

When I got this message from Courtney I was so angry at cancer, which we all know does no good!! But after a minute of self pity and sadness I realized that everything that all of us who are touched by cancer (which is all of us in one way or another) go thru, will be saving lives down the road. It can be SO hard to try understand why this happens, but one thing is for sure...something is learned from every angel gained, and from warriors who survive. All of this knowledge will save lives. For all I know, Charli's cancer may save the life of her children...or your grandchildren. I have to trust and have faith that God has a bigger picture for all of this, more than what we may see in the snapshot of our life. I will not give up the HOPE that all of the pain and suffering will do good for others. Call me naive, I have been called worse, but that is what helps me sleep on nights like tonight.

You never know what a day will bring. I will pray for Sara and her family and I hope she can find the courage and strength she needs.

A Cancer diagnosis demands so much from us; emotionally, physically and mentally. My heart felt sympathy goes out to anyone who is battling Cancer of any type.

In 2006, my Mother was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 79. My Mother lost her battle 8 months later.
I created the MedTrakker... founded and inspired out of deep sorrow and personal experience.

MedTrakker is a Cancer Medical Organizer created to assist patients in tracking and organizing every aspect of there treatment care journey.
The MedTrakker was created to save patients and care givers the anxiety of "Starting from Scratch".

The Organizer allows the patient to record Important Contacts, Health and Treatment History, All of your appointments with a 1 year Calendar, Chart your daily or weekly Blood Counts. Side Effect Management, Insurance Discussions and more.
The Organizer also provides Nutritional Support, Physical Support and Motivational Support. Each section of the MedTrakker is designed to fit the needs of every Cancer patient and their Care Givers. Patients will interact with many health care providers aiding them in there treatment care. MedTrakker is a valuable resource tool in an easy-to-use format. Please visit us online
We donate 10% of our proceeds to LACO; a non-profit organization that helps families touched by cancer.

Blessing to all who are battling any type of Cancer!
