We’re now a full two weeks into Rebecca’s proton therapy and, possibly due to the near-total resection of her tumor and definitely due to the specific chemotherapy regimen she’s using, you’d be hard-pressed to tell that anything is or ever was wrong with her. Her energy and spirit continue to burn as bright as ever. She jumps and cavorts and storms like any child of her age and temperament. Sometimes, it’s very hard to believe that all these things are actually necessary.
Updates have been more sparse of late in part because of the ceaseless parade of specialist appointments and other demands on our time, but also because we realized our eldest daughter is reading what I write, and that’s something I have to take into consideration. Our family may be split between two cities, but we are still a family, and the balancing act of being a family continues, as it must.
Tomorrow Team Becca is going to be a very strong presence at the 2013 Northeast Ohio CureSearch Walk for Children’s Cancer. If you’ve contributed to the team, thank you so much; we really, really appreciate the overwhelming support. If you’d still like to donate or join us, please do! We’re close to 40 team members and $10,000 raised, and crossing either of those thresholds would be fantastic.
