Smile Prayers for Mandy ~ Have been answered in her favor ~Update

I know I've been away for awhile, been busy doing other things, but I still have forum family here and wanted to share with you.

March 3 2010 is a day that changed our families lives forever. This is the day that we learned that my little Mandy had a brain tumor found by MRI, later we found out that it's cancer (Medulloblastoma). Her treatment will last months and we will win this battle with your prayers and the Lords help.

Farout,
I am glad you have thrown out a line to your friends here at the HDF so that we can all pull with you through our hopes and prayers for you and your family.
Nothing is as precious as our children, all members here who have them know this and the ones that will become parents in the future will someday come to understand it.
God Bless....our prayers are with you!

I am so sorry to hear this Farout. My heart goes out to you and your family and please always know that she CAN beat this. I have a long time client who's daughter had a brain tumor when she was about 3 years old and that daughter is now 19 years old and doing fine, so always know you CAN win this battle.

I always feel horrible whenever I hear about a child getting something like this and as a parent of 4 kids I just cannot imagine the feelings you are dealing with right now but ALWAYS keep hope alive and God bless you and your family!

Please keep us informed of her progress and if there is anything we can do to help. I am sure I speak for everyone that she and your family will be in our prayers.

Thanx for the support guys, it means alot to me. I will keep you up to date as we go through this journey. Proton beam radiation will begin April 7th and last for 6 weeks, Mon-Fri. Six week break after that then 4 rounds of chemo, that should take us into Nov.

This picture is a couple of years old, will get a newer one uploaded soon.

Check into a place in Augusta, GA for a second opinion.
I don't know the place, but I'm betting you could find it if you look.
Worked wonders on a friend of mine when everyone else gave her no chance.

Here is a more recent picture of Mandy taken Christmas 2009
Mandy is 8 years old.
She is on the St Jude protocol with the latest Proton beam therapy (only 4 machines in the US)
Prognosis is good, but don't want odds placed on my baby girl.

^^^^

That's REALLY good to hear - that she is 8. I was doing some reading on her aliment and it appears that the critical age is 3 and under. That's where the risk factor changes from Average to High for a successful resolution.

Do they know how long she has be afflicted by it?

Have they scheduled the surgery yet?

That is good news and I'm certain she will recover and she will be in my prayers.
