My Little Girl Is Done With Chemo!

Thu Mar 29, 2007 9:32 am

Hi Everyone!!!

This is truly a wonderful day for my family and me! My little girl, Savanna, after more than a year of treatment, is FINALLY finished with her chemotherapy treatments!! As many of you remember, My (at the time she was one and half years old) baby girl was diagnosed with Pluropulmonary Blastoma. This is a very rare childhood lung cancer that has only affected about 160 kids worldwide since 1977. After a couple of surgeries her cancer has gone into remission but we still had to continue with her chemo treatment plans. We are so thankful for the outpouring of love and support brought on by those of you here on A.net all over the world! I invite EVERYONE to visit and sign her guestbook to let her know and show her your continued words of praise and support! Thanks for keeping Savanna in your prayers!!

Savanna's website is here.. www.caringbridge.org/visit/savannahamm

Excellent, excellent news. Such a traumatic experience for anyone, much less a little girl. I'm thankful every day that my daughter is happy and healthy. I feel for your pain and what Savanna had to endure. Hopefully, she's beaten this disease and she'll continue to be happy and healthy as well!

Congrats!

Now if we could get my 84 year old grandmother to finish with her chemo.

Everytime some celebrity/politician announces they have a recourance she uses it as justification to cancel the remaining two treatments.

I have a bad feeling this isn't going to end well.

That is truly outstanding news! Hopefully, your little girl is one of the great survival stories of how far we've come in beating cancer, even though we have a long way to go.

God speed, and may this be the start of a great year for your family.

Great news! Praying does work!

It is because of families and stories like this that my 8 year old daughter last week decided that for her birthday party with friends (which was this afternoon), instead of the 7 screaming girls bringing presents she wanted them to bring a donation for the "Stollery Childrens Hospital" here in Edmonton. The hospital had a fundraiser last week so the timing was perfect.
This afternoon the girls raised $210 for the hospital. It is not much. But i am proud of my daughter and her friends.

Jason : All the best to your daughter and family.

Cheers

Jason, my prayers and thoughts have been with Savanna, yourself and your wife through this battle! She has the most amazing smile, that reaches out and touches your heart.

Savanna is a true fighter and has come out on top!! Wow, no more Chemo.....that is amazing!!! She was blessed to have parents like you and the strong support from everyone around her.

Thanks for making my day with this wonderful news!!!
