Thank You for Showing Up!

On September 12, 2016 our family was given the devastating news that our four year old daughter has cancer.  In the minutes, hours, days, weeks and months that followed we were consumed with this new, horrifying reality in our lives: Morgan has leukemia.  

Thirteen months after starting treatment, Morgan has received over 315 doses of chemotherapy, 254 "pokes" (iv starts, blood draws, port access, or injections), 10 blood and platelet transfusions, 19 lumbar punctures, spent 43 nights in the hospital, spent 97 days under contact precautions for neutropenia, and went to clinic 71 times.  With another year and a half of active treatment left in her roadmap, Morgan continues to be one of the strongest and most pleasant little ladies I have ever known.  

In these past thirteen months, there has been so many exceptional acts of kindness, generosity and love for Morgan and our entire family.  Homemade meals delivered, cards, gifts, donations, phone calls, texts, emails and more loads of laundry folded for us than I ever thought possible.  And just when you might think our friends' support could fade, you, once again, stepped up to support Morgan as she was honored with the role of Ambassador for CHOP's Parkway Run and Walk.  You donated.  You fundraised.  You ran.  You walked.  You showed up.  

Morgan's Crew raised $19,697 for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's cancer center.  We were the 7th highest fundraising team among almost 100 teams.  Overall the event raised over $1.2 million towards research for treatments and cures for childhood cancer.  Treatments to help thousands of other kids like Morgan.  

The words THANK YOU will never fully capture our gratitude for everything you have done to support Morgan and our family.  Thank you for showing up at the race and thank you for showing up for us so many times since September 2016.
