Update - 9/13


The results from Wednesdays MRI came back CLEAN! The changes that appears on the August scan that caused the concern are nowhere to be found!!!!

The eye exam on Monday did not show any thickening on her optic nerve so that is also a relief. Also, the spinal tap looked fine with only 2 white cells found. The neuro-oncologist is not expecting anything exciting from the remaining tests that they are doing so that is also good news.

We will head back to Boston in December to meet with everyone again and have another round of scans as well as a 1 year post treatment appointment with the radiation oncologist.

On Friday, we held another very successful bake sale for Cookies for Kids Cancer. Thanks again to everyone who baked and ate. We also had the opportunity to meet some new friends from Drew University Womens Lacross thanks to the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation. They are a great group of ladies and we are excited to get to know them.

Today, Campbell gets to go to her new school for the first time (school bus and all!!!!)!

Breathing a little easier until December,

Greg, Robin, Caitlin, Caroline & Campbell

Labor Day Weekend Update

We hope that everyone is enjoying their last days of summer. Campbell spent this labor day weekend in a much better place than she did last year....with friends down at the beach.

While we were heading down to the beach, we got a welcome email from the "Friends of Jaclyn Foundation" introducing us to the Drew University Womens Lacrosse team who has been generous enough with their time to ask Cam to be a "part of their team". We are all very excited and honored to be part of such a wonderful organization and look forward to making new friends. Reading Jaclyn's story ( is a true inspiration. When you have a moemnt, please take a look at the above link and watch the story that aired on "Real Sports" - amazing!

Tomorrow afternoon, she and Robin will head back to Boston for another round of MRI, opthamology, oncology appointments and wrap it all up with a spinal tap scheduled for Friday morning. Unfortunately, she will again miss her first week of school and Robin will miss seeing the other girls off to school on their first day again (last year Robin, Cam and I were in Boston while Cam battled meningitis).

On Friday, while Robin and Cam are heading back from Boston, myself and the other girls will be hosting Bake Sale #2 to benefit Cookies for Kids Cancer. The last one was such a success, we figured why not run with it some more. If you are interested in baking, please let us know and we can arrange for you to drop off the goodies. A big thank you, once again, to all of our family a and friends who are so generous with their time and have graciously offered to help out this week while we make the next turn in what we pray will be Cam's continued road to recovery. We could not do it without you!

With Love,

Greg, Robin, Caitlin, Caroline & Campbell
