Tomorrow is Alison's first Mother's day and Thursday is her birthday; two milestones we weren't sure she'd see but are so happy she will.
Alison recently had her first official MRI post radiation and chemotherapy in the middle of April and we are pleased to say that the tumor appears to be stable - she's had no new growth since the end of January. While we'd ultimately hope to see the tumor shrinking, the fact that the tumor has been stable for three months gives us hope.
Alison has been wearing an Optune cap for 18 hours a day for the last two months which requires her head to be shaven every few days. She also hasn't been able to walk since December and her weight has dropped significantly but in recent weeks she's been eating more and has even had the energy to do some physical therapy. She is also continuing chemotherapy and we are constatnly amazed by what she has been able to endure. Alison continues to tell us she wants to fight.
As she celebrates her first Mother's Day with Nathan tomorrow, our entire family remains grateful that you have all helped us reach this milestone. Your donations have meant that Logan can stay at home to provide full time care for Alison and keep her as strong as possible for the road ahead.

Thank you all again for all your support and Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers and all the kids who are lucky enough to have them.
