I have been having the hardest time posting updates on here, so encourage you all to visit our Facebook page "Our Angel Avery Lynn" to see exactly how hard she's been fighting and what kind of miracles we have witnessed lately. She had been truly amazing just like all of you..her FANS!! Our stem cell transplant admittance is next Tuesday the 21st, of May..it had to be pushed back 3 times due to her unexpected spleen dying back in early March..it was the size of a football, weighing in at 3.5 pounds and had eaten 90% of the over 200transfusions over the past year..it was time to remove it! Since then we finally have a diagnosis of JMML, a type of Leukemia. Like I said, more details on the Facebook page..Love to you all, Thank you so much for your love and support!! with Love, the Hanels

On March 28th 2012 Avery was taken to children's hospital for what everyone thought was a flu. Our lives were turned upside down in the blink of an eye. What followed was a litany of tests, procedures, extended hospital stays, and treatments to sustain our beautiful 2 year old Avery while doctors searched for a diagnosis. 120 blood and platelet transfusions, 6 bone marrow biopsies and 7 months of chemotherapy later we have a diagnosis- MDS (myelodystlastic syndrome). Our next step is a stem cell transplant (cord blood). To make this miracle work this month we will be admitted to the children's hospital, in the pediatric oncology ward for a minimum of 2 to 5 months of hospitalized ISOLATION. Starting with an intense regime of chemotherapy, to kill her immune system so she can receive the stem cell transplant. We are blessed that we have 3 possible matches.

It's hard to talk about money when there are many more important things on our hearts but it too is a reality. Because of Avery's extended hospitalizations and compounding medical bills we need help. We will be living in the Ronald McDonald house while we stay by our angels side during her brave fight. We are asking for donations to help offset all the costs. While all the money is going out nothing is coming in. We humbly ask for any help you can give, knowing these times are difficult for everyone. If you cannot give financially we ask that you hold our family up in prayer, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. These donations will allow us to be by our baby girls side while she fights the fight of her life.

Your angel now has an angel to watch over her! My grandson, Angel Avery Luke, we lost this beautiful boy to SIDs on 8/3/2013. I always knew he was sent here for a purpose! God bless you and your angel Avery.

Just in case anyone is forgetful like me, when your card gets billed for your donation it shows up as "WPY**Alexandraandpet&quo t; Palo Alto. It took me about an hour to figure out what the charge was for.

This is my son's friends daughter. If you have any extra please donate to this darling little girl. Who knows one day one of us may be in this same situation. None of us will miss a twenty dollar bill but oh how it adds up.
