We recently found out my 17 year old niece Afton Wallace is battling an aggressive form of Ewing’s Sarcoma. It has been a crazy, scary two weeks. She is in the Vanderbilt-Ingrams Hospital in Memphis, TN and is showing marked progress, but is still up against incredible odds. From her earliest years, Afton has been a cheerful, happy, exuberant, and kind girl. Even now, when she is very, very sick, she continues to smile. If you would like to join your prayers with ours on behalf of this lovely, lovely girl, I would deeply appreciate it. #fightlikeawallace #teamafton #mymissionisremission #aftonstrong #wallaceplaid #cancerpickedthewrongchica

Our last payment for {g}’s trip will be made this week. We did it! I seriously can hardly believe that it’s happening for her. I had a deep, underlying belief that it would happen, but there were many moments along the way when I was overwhelmed with despair at trying to get to where we needed to get. The Mr. would keep saying, “Where’s your faith?” It’s beyond lovely and we owe a HUGE THANK YOU to the many people who have helped us! So many people have contributed something – even if it was just encouraging words – and by contributing you’ve told us that you believe in {G} and her abilities. Thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Now I’m moving on to the task of outfitting her for the extremely hot and humid Beijing in July. Yikes!
