On This Fierce Friday, It has been one year to day, that Delaney was at Oakland Kaiser, and already headed down for a 12 hour brain operation to remove a tumor, measuring 4cm X 5cm.

The operation was a success it was a 100% gross resection, we are so blessed and thankful. The resection was Delaney's biggest first step in her Fierce Fight. Later only to find out it was cancerous, and she was diagnosed with medulloblastoma. A nationally recognized protocol for treatment was to follow; 3 rounds of chemotherapy at Kaiser Oakland, 3 triple tandem chemotherapy treatments with 3 autologous bone marrow transplants and 28 days of focal radiation. Yes, the MRI is ugly, and brings about unexplainable emotions and memories for Mommy and Daddy, but it is an ugly truth, a truth that Delaney and other children are faced with, without choice, fiercely fighting for life.

Delaney's feeding tube has been out for almost 7 weeks now. Delaney is working very hard on her eating, it still remains challenging for her, Mommy and Daddy. Delaney has many, many challenges she still faces on a daily basis. We will continue to follow Delaney's lead, fiercely moving forward, on the slow road to recovery. Again we cannot thank each of you enough for all of the support you have give Delaney and our family. Thank you for all the prayers, love and support. As always.... GO TEAM DELANEY!!!!!

"And though she be but LITTLE, she is FIERCE!
