Today Zac and I took the boys out to Longbow Golf Club in Mesa for the 8th annual Fore Noah and Friends Golf Tournament where all proceeds go to Neuroblastoma research. Noah was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in 2005 and has been cancer free for 7 years now!! His family holds this tournament each year and they have raised about $60,000 each year at this event. We has such a great time out there today and we can’t wait to hear how much they ended up raising this year! I got to chat with Lara (Noah’s mom) for a bit and I also got to see a family that I used to nanny for 10 years ago! I can’t believe how the time flies. The boys had a great time and I thought you would enjoy a few pics of the day….I promise Braden was happy on the slides!!
With the end of April being here, the countdown to Jack’s 5th birthday and scan week will begin. Jack turns 5 on May 11th and we are so happy for that. We are so thankful that we can celebrate another birthday with Jack…even more thankful that it is a birthday where he is cancer free! Jack’s scans start on the 15th and we will hopefully know results by the 17th and then have an appointment with Dr Eshun on the 18th. Please send all of your positive thoughts, energy, and prayers Jack’s way. When these results come back clear, Jack’s scans will be able to be spread out to 6 months apart instead of every 3 months. Of course that is terrifying that it will be so long in between scans, but it is just one small step further away from the day that the Devil knocked on our door and that is something that we cannot be happier about.
