RALLYING THE TROOPS
WELL, IT'S BEEN WAY TOO LONG SINCE WE'VE ADDED ANY NEWS! DID YOU MISS US? WE'VE MISSED YOU.
WE DO HAVE SOME CHALLENGING NEWS TO SHARE, THOUGH. AND FOLKS...IT'S PERSONAL:
On Monday, July 12, Jaxon was admitted into St. Joseph's children's hospital for a blood transfusion. Since then he's been diagnosed with Leukemia (AML specifically). With treatment his prognosis is good, and we have no doubt that he will triumph! He will be posted up in the hospital for the next 5 months, though, and we are bracing ourselves for what's to come.
WE'VE STARTED A LITTLE JOURNAL ON FACEBOOK SO FRIENDS, FAMILY (AND ALL OF JAXON'S FANS) CAN STAY UPDATED ON HIS PROGRESS. IT'S ALSO A WONDERFUL WAY TO FEEL CONNECTED DURING A TRYING AND KIND OF SCARY TIME. THE COMMENTS AND EVERYONE'S SUPPORT THUS FAR HAVE BEEN MORE COMFORTING THAN WORDS CAN EXPRESS.
FRIENDS AND FAMILY HAVE EVEN STARTED A CROWD FUNDING DEAL TO MAKE THIS CHAPTER IN THE DIAZ FAMILY BOOK...A LITTLE EASIER TO NAVIGATE.
WE ASK YOU TO KEEP JAXON IN YOUR THOUGHTS. ALL OF THE BRIGHT, SHINY, POSITIVE, STRONG, AND HEALTHY VIBES YOU CAN MUSTER, PLEASE SEND THEM HIS WAY.
