Audrey is currently in treatment2015-08-01 13.22.36 battling stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma.  A form of cancer that generally is in the muscle.  Audrey’s is a little different though.  She is one of very few cases where the tumor was formed in the back muscle and attached it’s self into the spinal cord.  Then seeded into the nervous system with lesions in her upper spinal cord and brain.   The tumors that are in the nervous system have given her an assessment of stage 4 and a very aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatment plan is underway.

The intent for this site is keeping everyone informed and up to date on Audrey’s journey and fight with cancer.   Also to provide any one looking on the internet for other cases of Rhabdomyosarcoma like Audrey’s.

  5. I just want you all to know that I am praying for Audrey and your whole family. She is at the VERY TOP of my prayer list!! My son, Kaden, had rhabdomyosarcoma but he was diagnosed at a different stage. We go for our routine scans and try to stay in the moment, enjoying every day he has in remission. When I let my guard down, I become afraid that the cancer will return, but as we have learned, we MUST focus on one moment at a time, and not let fear take control…and that is how we survive. Easier said than done some days. I can’t seem to find the words to let you all know how much I care about Audrey and all of you, even though we have never met, because of the bond we share…because I have some idea of how unbearable this all is for you as a family…and yet we carry on, and find the grace of God each day and know that He loves each of us so very much. He is all around us, like you said. Keep your eyes focused on Him through all of this, and we will make it through this together. My son and I are here for Audrey, and for your family. We are praying that each of you remain strong and courageous, and stay focused on the beautiful gift each day is together as a family. Even on the most difficult days, there is a smile somewhere. And there is always love. Even when we are too weary and tired to find those smiles, there is ALWAYS love, in every moment. And Audrey is creating her legacy in each of those beautiful moments. What a gift! I hope you will reach out to me if you ever need someone to be there for you, in any way I can. Stay courageous. Stay strong. And don’t take your eyes off of our Heavenly Father, who loves Audrey more than you can imagine. xoxoxo
