Thank you to Claire for your fantastic contribution towards the Choc food packs!They are going to help so many families, thank you. Thank you to all that have contributed so much so far - i cant wait to thank each and every single one of you personally - thank you for doing this for Deqlan and for all the other families fighting paediatric cancer, God Bless you all for opening your hearts to this worthy cause
We got great news from our friends in Minnesota - Kates scans are showing great results and improvements! Thank you Lord - please continue to pray that the remainder of the tests continue to go as well and that we are soon saying Kate is NED - no evidence of disease!

My dear dear friend Ren and her boyfriend Grant are off to the UK for 2 years - they leave 10 October -i am going to miss you like mad Ren - i wish we had more time together these last few months - but i know you where with us in prayer and spirit - i know you of all people understand what Deqlan is going through - i salute you my friend for beating this 3 times -you are an inspiration to me and to Deqlan - go and have a ball in the UK - go and spread your wings and have the time of your life- I know you and Grant are going to be so happy together and the experience is going to be one of the best times of your life.

walking, WOW! Welcome to a whole new world!!!

Thank you to you and your sweet family for you nice and kind notes. I am glad you enjoy checking in on Charli, as I know we feel the same for beautiful Deqlan...I was just sharing his story with people a day or two ago.

Someone from your family sent a message about Charli bracelets, can you please email me the address (and other specific information) needed to get them sent out to you...I am a bit SLOW at getting them sent out this time around! (how many, color, etc!)

Yay, Well done Deqlan! You will definately be keeping your Mama and Dada on their toes now.
We love you so very much and you are constantly in our prayers. Although you have 'visibly' taken your very first steps, you have been a shining example of a little boy who has been marching with full force as a soldier of the Lord. You and your Mommy and Daddy continue to 'awe' us with your amazing spirit.
We love you all lots....
Keep on marching xxx
