“Cancer-Free”. “NED”. “100% Donor”. These are the words every cancer patient and their families want to hear from the moment of diagnosis. But even after a child has heard “Remission,” patients return year after year to their doctors for testing. Brennan and Hallie both returned to St. Jude this year for their annual checkup and both heard, once again, those amazing, magical words. Brennan, a leukemia survivor, is 100% Donor for the 7th year. Hallie, a brain tumor survivor, has No Evidence of Disease (NED) for her 5th year! We’re celebrating Hallie’s major milestone (Five Years!) and both of their good news!
Special Prayers for the Families of Frances and Colin
We at Press On know all too well that not every story sounds like Brennan or Hallie’s. Please take a moment in your day to honor our dear friends Colin and Frances, who both passed away in the last few weeks of March. To learn more about “Officer Colin” and his brain tumor journey, visit his Facebook Page. To learn how you can help children with orphan diseases like Frances, check out Friends of Frances. The tenacity and love of these astonishing children will not be forgotten.
May 10th is Approaching!
