Today’s the day.  Cameron, the six year old nephew of a dear friend of mine and the kid who is beloved by so many, goes into the hospital today and begins the chemo blast that will kill his existing bone marrow and with it, his immune system.  It will be imperative that any visitors he has during these next weeks be healthy.  I’d like to ask here and now for vibes, good thoughts, and prayers for those who will be wanting to be at Cam’s bedside and in his room during this next phase of his treatment in preparation for the transplant that will save his life and banish the JMML demons who are attacking.  He is such a fighter, but he is, after all, only six.  We must fight along with him.  The more soldiers he has at his side, the easier the battle.  Rally the troops!  And now, dig in!  This is going to be a long, uphill battle against tremendous odds.  But then, so was the battle at Normandy on D-Day.  And we know how that turned the tide.  We shall overcome!

“The boy who is going to make a great man must not make up his mind merely to overcome a thousand obstacles, but to win in spite of  a thousand repulses and defeats.”     Theodore Roosevelt

Go, Team Cameron!
