A Request, Team Roxie Style.

It was just back in November when sweet Roxie’s battle with High Risk Neuroblastoma began.  And yesterday, she headed back into the hospital for 4-6 weeks where she will be in isolation the entire time…

“Her high dose chemotherapy will begin on Wednesday and she will be dosed every subsequent day through Sunday. On Monday she will be given back her own stem cells which were harvested back in January. Starting Monday, until her stem cells engraft, Roxie will be at her most vulnerable” {read more from Holly, http://teamroxie.weebly.com/}

I thought this family was sweet when I first met them several years back, they made my heart melt at baby Walker’s newborn session and over the past six months, I’ve just fallen in love with them… So check out the most recent images of their sweet family from back in May and make sure you read Holly’s special request at the bottom of the post:

Are you up for Holly’s Challenge?!?  Please take part and join me as well!

From Holly:

“I am asking you to have a picnic with your family. Nothing big, nothing fancy, we’re talking sheet on the ground in your own back yard – or do it up high style at a park with a pavilion, whatever works for you. June 11-17 is International Neuroblastoma Awareness Week and on the schedule for June 17th is a global invitation to sit down with your family for a picnic. Well, we can’t. So please, in an effort to help bring awareness to neuroblastoma, have one with your family for me. Take a picture, throw it up on Facebook & twitter and in the caption write my mantra- KNOW Neuroblastoma/NO Neuroblastoma. Maybe if you have time, do a little research and include a high risk neuroblastoma fact under “KNOW Neuroblastoma/NO Neuroblastoma”. Then share it. If even one person in your network does a little searching after seeing your picture because they’re not sure why you’re talking about neuroblastoma or what it even is, they will learn of it and understand why it needs to be gone. It will start a conversation and we’ll have accomplished something huge together.
My family and families like mine need your help getting the word out.”
