Jane Update:
Jane had a hearing check-up last week and I am happy to report her hearing is stable :)

A sleepy Jane during her hearing test...

...and a happy Jane with her favorite after-testing treat!

NF Update:
Was touched to receive a phone call out of the blue from another NF Mom in California.  She had read about Jane and me in the Children’s Tumor Foundation End of the Year letter, then had looked me up and called me.  She wanted to share her daughter’s experiences with NF (she has very similar tumors to Jane’s) and her experience with the medication Gleevec.  It is contacts like these that make everything that I am doing for the Children’s Tumor Foundation worth it!  It makes living with NF so much more tolerable to know we are not alone.  On that note, I’d like to thank the members of the NF Mom’s Rock! support group for their daily comfort, advice, and encouragement.  Thank you also to the hardworking ladies at the CTF NF Endurance team—you are amazing and your efforts are so appreciated.

Love to everyone!  See you in 2014!
