    As our family has learned this year, more people than you’ll ever know are praying for you and little Isa as you face the unbelievable challenges of having a child with cancer. And, just as you have helped our family by chronicling the everyday struggles you face, we continue to be amazed by people ready and willing to offer help and support, if only in small but very significant ways. I will pray that those around you will continue to sense your needs and remain steadfast in their commitment to your family. May God bless you in this holy season.

    Okay, that’s not fun. Sorry to hear about everything going on with Isa. Is the VOD under control? That doesn’t sound good. Will be thinking of you all!
