Delaney, Mommy and Daddy met with her neurologist today and discussed many things at length. Delaney has fought fiercely through 6 rounds of chemotherapy and come out on top. She completed it in full, no chemotherapy doses were adjusted, she was not late for any cycle and most important she finished all the cycles. However Delaney's FIERCE FIGHT will continue.
As young parents we have been thrown into unimaginable circumstances, and decisions that no parent should have to make or experience, ever. Agree, or disagree with her treatment, there are strict protocols for a complete treatment, time must not be wasted in these circumstances, remember this is Delaney's story. This is a reality we live with each day. Mommy and Daddy fight fiercely at her side, with Team Delaney at her back, to achieve cure. That said, one effective tool that has not been used yet, that is part of the protocol for her diagnosis is focal radiation. That treatment will start in a month or so, just as Delaney is about to be an older sister for the 2nd time. Delaney was diagnosed when Mommy was 9 weeks pregnant with our 3rd child. Mommy and Daddy planned the kids close together. Treatment will be for 5 1/2 weeks, sedation and then radiation, 5 days a week over 15 minutes. Mommy and Daddy will be stretched thin, 3 children under the age of 3 one in a fierce fight. What wouldn't we do for our child.
As Team Delaney has walked with her through her story, we ask that you continue to walk with her, steadfast, keeping her in your prayers, thoughts, heart and with positive energy. It is truly felt. Thank you. Let's witness as Delaney she fiercely gives cancer both barrels. Thank you for all the prayers, love and support. As always.... GO TEAM DELANEY!!!
"And though she be but LITTLE, she is FIERCE!"
