The Story

From Skylar's Dad, Aaron:

On Tuesday, April 23th, 2013, I recieved some news that no parent ever wants to hear- My 6 year old daughter Skylar has a very aggressive form of cancer called Burkitt's Lymphoma.

Burkitt’s lymphoma is an uncommon type of Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma (NHL). Burkitt’s lymphoma commonly affects children. It is a highly aggressive type of B-cell lymphoma that often starts and involves body parts other than lymph nodes.

This whole process started with what we thought was a reactionary inflamation in her neck from a case of strep throat. We saw 10 doctors before we found a father and son practice that immediatly referred us to an ENT specialist in Cleveland. Skylar's appointment was on Tuesday. She was admitted immediately and has been through a multitude of tests and a surgery to remove a 6x6x3 tumor from her neck.

We spent the past week at Rainbow Babies Hospital in Cleveland Ohio.
On April 25th Skylar had more tests and another surgery. Today, April 26th, we are going to start fighting back with chemotherapy.

I am asking all of you for your prayers through my daughter's battle with cancer and for those of you with children please do question and push your doctors. If you feel something is not right and you are not happy with what they tell you. GO GET ANOTHER OPINION!
Hopefully we caught this in time and she will kick cancer's ASS!

Skylar is finally on the upswing. This round of chemo has been a rough one and very trying for her, yet she can still smile and giggle. Yesterday was better than the last, today is better than yesterday. She has high's and low's through out the day, but we are hoping to be able to go home with in the next few days just to let her play and be a kid. She is due back for her next round of chemo on the 30th- so it doesn't give us much time to enjoy outside of the hospital, but we will fill our days with love, family, and activities to help bring us all closer while we have time to share together before returning to the hospital. She misses her sister and brothers like crazy (so do I). One day at a time.

Again, we can't say how blessed we are to have each of you in our lives. All of the support goes beyond our imaginations. Financially, emotionally, and most importantly you all have continued to keep Skylar and our family in your prayers! We can not say thank you enough. You are all so special and thank you for continuing to follow us on our journey, on Skylar's journey.

Love to all of Skylars supporters.  I tear up with every message.  Please know that even the support of $1 can assist if we can get the message out to all of our friends and family members.  It is difficult to understand the impact on all involved but with the prayers and support that is pouring in from everywhere, I know all will be good.

Our family is struggling right now but we know we are truly blessed...we have faith...and most importantly we have friends.

Thank you everyone,
Love Skylar's grandma

Today Skylar turns 7. Not at home with family and friends, but lying in a hospital bed. Even though she can't be home, Daddy, Sissy, Bubba, are all going to come up to wish her a very Happy Birthday. She is doing a little better today, although still feels pretty "icky". She tried to get up to get a manicure from the volunteers in the hospital, but ended up right back in bed and almost vomiting. Today may just have to be a slow day, but it will be a good day none the less. Thank you all for being here.
