Happy Birthday

Miss Kate turned 6 years old today and celebrated exactly how she wished - a day at the pool, followed by spaghetti and meatballs and ending with Carvel ice cream cake! It was super fun to hang out as a family and enjoy the time together.

As we reflected on the changes in the last year, we were profoundly grateful for how far Kate's come. Last year our heads were still spinning as we helplessly watched Kate endure the tortuous induction chemotherapy and steroid pulses. I can't seem to be able to describe the pain that our entire family experienced during that time.


This year we have a happy, energetic girl who is looking forward to swim team meets and playing with her friends. We were elated to celebrate another year of Kate's life and reflect on how truly blessed we are! WE LOVE YOU KATE!!!
