The Story

I started to say that Ella West was like any other 10 year old, then I realized... she isn't.  She is more poised, brave, smart, curious, funny and above all STRONGER then most 10 year olds we know.   Her courage and inner-strength has amazed her family & friends.  We should all take a lesson from you Ella!

There are a few ways you can help the ELLA STRONG team.

Ella completed all her final scans this Tuesday and the results are back..
Ella West is cancer free!

The doctors are thrilled with her response and scan results. PET scan was totally clear and her lymph nodes were in the high 80 percentiles for shrinkage. This great news also means that Ella will not undergo Radiation. And we had the best night sleep in months.

Ella is off celebrating with her cousins, mom mom, Tucker and Luke at Great Wolf Lodge. And yes, the doctors approved! :)

The Round 4 Round-Up was pretty similar to Round 3, although Ella required less anti nausea meds in her last round. I'm not sure if the body becomes more accustomed to the chemo treatments, or if it was the excitement of being the last round. Probably a mixture of both. Mouth sores were once again an issue and Ella had a crappy couple of days because of them, but again, not quite as bad as her previous treatments.

We are all breathing a sigh of great relief! We go for Ella's exit appointment on Monday and the doctors will give us her final "Road Map" --- what to expect for the next 5 years. I'll post a quick update after that appointment on wwww.caringbridge.com. site: ellawest, passcode:hockey

We may never to able to express how thankful we are to each and every person that has reached out to us during this extremely difficult time. Our family is fortunate to have an abundance of wonderful people loving us. We THANK YOU for all you have done! Our gratitude goes beyond writing words - - action speaks louder! And act we will!

All our love, Lee, Tucker, Ella, Logan and Luke

Your support has been amazing!  Tucker & LeAnne are blessed to have such a wonderful support group of friends & family.  Each one of you has helped Ella and her family stay strong.  As Ella begins Round 4 today, your messages & support are felt even more.  As you know our Peaceful Way Fundraiser is coming up this Saturday.  Yes, this will help continue to support the family financially during these times, but it's also an opportunity to come together as a community, in a special place and acknowledge the strength of Ella and her family with a smile.  With BIG Love.. THANK YOU for all that you do.
