Good news!

"MRI" these days is a very scary three-letter abbreviation. MRI has meant bad news to our family. Well, today the MRI brought good news. After over 3 months including 2 brain surgeries, 33 radiation treatments and 30 chemo treatments, Naya's brain MRI looked "great". That was the word her doctor used. He was pleased with what he saw! He expects her spine to look good too, and is now getting us ready for chemo again next week. All things we wanted to hear from him.

This means Naya is responding to the treatments. We still have a very long road and are by no means out of the woods, but this is the best news we could have hoped for at this point. 

Your wishes, prayers, energy, love and genuine support for Naya are helping us and her stay positive throughout this difficult journey. Our only ask is that you stay with us for the long haul as it makes a huge difference to her and us, and clearly is working. Thank you to all of you!

Naya wanted me to post a picture of her pre-cancer...I think because she sees a light finally. This is the first time she has wanted a pre-cancer picture of her on the blog so I think it means a lot to her too.Image
