Happy Thanksgiving

We are thankful for blood donors this Thanksgiving.

Mia is certainly thankful for them...

Her sisters are thankful too that she can celebrate with them.

Mia even got to hike this Thanksgiving weekend!

Mia's 148th Transfusion

Hemoglobin 8.4 - not feeling good. Tired, pale...needs blood to survive.

We started our day off with a special treat from Starbucks before
heading down to the University Medical Center in Tucson.
Diamond Children's is the medical center for kids in the
hospital there...which is so ironic that Mia has:
Diamond Blackfan Anemia

Always have HOPE - Never GIVE UP!


This is Mia's blood draw that will determine if 
somewhere in this world she
has a bone marrow match that could potentially cure her.
They said we should know in about 2 weeks...
which lands us at Thanksgiving,
Please pray for us.

A letter from NY - from Helping Little Heroes.
Couldn't have come at a better time.
Prayer Request:
Please pray for our family no matter what the outcome. 
It is in God's hands.
