Hey #TeamMorgan thought we'd give you all an update. Things have been crazy around this camp. Morgan is having some major anxiety issues. Her depression seems to be taking over right now. We are working with her therapist right now to relieve some of her stress. She is going to be starting some "fun" therapy soon and she is excited about that. (More on that soon) we hav some awesome people in our community who have offered their services to help her get backto feeling like herself ♥ even though she's hit a rough spot she is #stillsmiling and still trying to remain as positive as she can! As her mom I want to wrap my wings around her and protect her from the world. My heart breaks to see my usually outgoing child so reserved and so withdrawn. Please pray! THANK YOU! #Ourteamisstrong #WEGOTTHIS #TeamMorgan #middlebird
Port accessing is usually one of the toughest parts of our time during clinic and I was sure today would be no different if not worse since the #Middlebird usually only wants our NP Mary Okimoto to access her. Plus we are usually seen up in San Fran so since we're in the Valley this time I REALLY thought we were gonna have issues....Luckily for us the RN today was a PRO! :-D hardly any tears and very little panic! #Ourteamisstrong #TeamMorgan #Silverlining
UPDATE: So we wait....again..... looks like the discussion is whether to start the new Chemo while we're here this trip or watch it a little more closely and wait. I feel like my heart may explode out of my chest right about now! I DISlike waiting and I DISlike watching my #Middlebird in so much pain and not feeling 100%. Our U.C.S.F team will review and help us make the right decision!! (They are amazing) we are confident but waiting SUCKS nonetheless! Please continue to pray for Morgan and donate if you can!! Anything helps during this time!!.... Thank you!!! #forevergrateful #Ourteamisstrong #TeamMorgan #WEGOTTHIS #Morethan4 #Cancersucks #Stillsmiling
UPDATE: on our way back to the ER. Morgan is dehydrated and feeling icky. The vomiting, nausea and headaches have gotten worse. Thankfully our Nurse Practitioner is on it and recommended another ER visit for fluids and whatever else is needed. We are scheduled for am MRI tomorrow. We need lots of good thoughts and prayers right about now! Thank you!!! #Ourteamisstrong #TeamMorgan #WEGOTTHIS #MORETHAN4

Okay #TeamMorgan we need prayers! Morgan has had on and off headaches since Sunday. She has just had an MRI not to long ago so they are not thinking another one would show anything significant however today they seem to be getting worse! She is also complaining of vision problems in her good eye (right) we go and see her Optometrist today and if they notice anything wrong we'll go from there. Her Nurse Practitioner is aware and working with us to try and find out why the change. I am confident Iin our team of Doctors but as a mom I am nervous as hell!! As soon as we know more I will keep you all updated. Please say an extra prayer for her during your day today. #Ourteamisstrong #Cancersucks #TeamMorgan #Middlebird #WEGOTTHIS
We are still trying to reach our goal on this page to make it easier on us while I am not working. Anything helps. Thank you all so much for all your love and support! We couldn't have gotten this far without all of you!!
Headed home tomorrow after a long week in the city! Morgan absolutely loves her Dr.s and that makes me soo happy! Praying For the best these next three months. What I'd really like is for them to be able to get in there anf get the cancer out but because of where it's at, it's not possible! We'll take what we can get for now and keep praying! Thank you all for your support! Please share this page and help us meet our goal. #Ourteamisstrong #WEGOTTHIS #Middlebird #fuzzyhairdontcare #cancersucks #TeamMorgan
LONG day just made it back to the family house about 400 and we left this morning at 840.... ugh! Tired!!
MRI shows possibly some dead cells in the middle of tumor hasn't shrunk but hasn't grown either. Her vision is better in her right eye and left eye shows some progress although she still has no vision. They are unsure as to why her eyes have changed when the tumor hasn't but we don't care we'll take it!!! She is going to get a 3 month break in chemo providing there are no other changes. That in itself is great news!! We're exhausted and ready for a nap! Thank you for all the prayers and support!! #Ourteamisstrong #WEGOTTHIS #Middlebird
We leave for San Fran tomorrow and my nerves are completely shot! Even though I know everything will work out the way it should I still manage to psych myself out.... UGH! Lots of prayers and good thoughts please. Morgan will have an MRI, Optamology, Oncology and whatever else she needs whioe we're there. This is our first trip with just the two of us and that in itself is stressful. Scott usually does all the driving and keeping me calm, tomorrow it's all up to me....YIKES! LOL! Wish us luck! I'll keep everyone updated as we go along. #Ourteamisstrong #TeamMorgan #Middlebird #Fuzzyhairdontcare #WEGOTTHIS #Cancersucks
For the last few weeks I have been sooo stressed!! How am I going to keep staying home with NO pay? (haven't had a check in going on 3 months) how am I to justify essential oils? How do I afford healthier food choices? How can I pay these co-pays that are building? Just HOW? finally I decided to Let go! If it's meant to be it will be! First I want to rhank all of you who have given so graciously! And now I am asking to please share this page with your friends, your employees/emoloyers and loved ones! Anything will help and the quicker we reach our goal to sooner I'll know how long I can stay home with Morgan! she's extremely anxious about me possibly having to go back and to be quite honest, so am I! Thank you #TeamMorgan #Ourteamisstrong #WEGOTTHIS #fuzzyhairdontcare
Quick update. Chemo week went well, thank you Lord! Few set backs but overall successful! I hope every month from here on out can be this good! Today we start water therapy and the #MiddleBird couldn't be happier. Anything to keep her feeling good! She is so positive and so upbeat, she's really trying to keep the faith! My girl is #StillSmiling.....Now to get in the Xmas spirit! The #birds are sooo excited for Santa to visit!
Good Morning #TeamMorgan just a little update..... This weeks Chemo is WAY better than last month! Feeling blessed that we have had just a few bumps in the road! #Middlebird has been sleeping AND eating WOOHOO!! Thank you so much for the continued support! We appreciate you all more than you'll ever know! #Ourteamisstrong #WEGOTTHIS #Cancersucks
Blood work tomorrow! Please pray the #Middlebird has good numbers! Mondays are always rough on us.... so much anxiety and emotions.... Chemo is coming up soon and that is another week of stress and mixed emotions.... thank goodness we habe YOU!!!.... Thank you so much to all our supporters! Please share this page with all your friends! We are trying to reach our goal!! #ourteamisstrong #WEGOTTHIS #TeamMorgan #fuzzyhairdontcare
We had blood work today and by the grace of GOD Morgan's #'s were good! She's been going between good days and bad days, extremely tired and irritable to flying high! We'll take the good days and get through the bad ones!! Thank you all for your continued support!!! Please keep sharing this page and help #TeamMorgan reach our goal!!! We've been blessed with so many wonderful supporters! We feel so lucky to have each and every one of you on our side!!! THANK YOU!!♥
Today Chemo seemed to go as smooth as Chemo can possibly go. We got home and it seemed like the #middlebird was gonna cruise through like the champ she is, however this evening her stomach pain was pretty strong and she was unable to keep anything down. She has hydration the next three days so hopefully this will help perk her back up! Through it all she continues to maintain her positive attitude and she is #Stillsmiling! I never realized just how much I could learn from my child in times of adversity but everyday she teaches me something new!! Many days I silently wish I could take her place and take all her pain away and funny thing is I must wear my desires on my sleeve because she says to ne today "mommy I know you would take my place but I woukdnt want you to, #Wegotthis this momma and it's so unfair because I'm only 11 but I can fight, and when I can't fight, or get tired or sad then YOU can fight for me okay"? When did my baby become a lil lady??? She's soo wise beyond her years!!! We keep choosing NOT to question even though there are days when I wannna scream why??!!! I'm just gonna have to suck it up and be strong like my daughter!!! Thank you all so much for the continued support, without this page and your donations I wouldn't be able to stay home and be here 100% for Morgan so Thank you, Thank you , Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!! Please share this page and let others be amazed by this sweet soul we call our daughter!!!
Hey so just wanted to let everyone know that we have a GREAT fundraiser going on http://www.stickerbus.com/childhood-cancer-fundraiser-for-morgan-buffaloe you can order a sticker supporting the #Middlebird or a car decal and rep her around town!!....woohoo! Check out the link above!! We also have ChavezCouture. Com making wonderful #TeamMorgan tees.... check her out! You won't be disappointed!! New tee shirrr every month!!! If neither of those seem appealing please click on the link and donate to #TeamMorgan on GO FUND ME! this has been a trying month for us and because Morgan was admitted to UCSF for a lil over a week, I habe had to stay home with her, I wouldn't change that for the world but the pocketbook isn't taking to kindly to it. We also have other kids at home that are suffering because of this struggle we are going through! ! We have to thank all of our supporters who have continuously showed us tremendous amounts of love and support! Please choose one and help out! We appreciate you all more than you'll ever know!! Oh and don't forget to save the date November 14th 430-700 @ baywood elementary for a BBQ dinner and a fabulous silent auction!!! Thank you on advance ~ The Buffaloe family
Sometimes when you let go of anger and frustration, positivity finds you!! So in the midst of worrying about the insurance and all the nonsense that was going on with that, We stopped for a moment to silently (and NOT so silently) THANK GOD for sending us a sign that HE is walking with us through all of this. Morgan's vision has been a major concern of ours since she is completely blind in her left eye and had only 2/3rds in her right eye. Well, as of Yesterday she has gained a good portion of her right eye back! She still has no vision in her left eye HOWEVER she hasn't up until yesterday been able to see ANY light or shadows either! Yesterday she jumped a little when they flashed the light in her left eye. ...I cried like a baby! YESSSSSS I sure did!! Drs. Aren't sure that she'll ever get full vision out of that eye but we're going to keep PRAYING on that too! Sometimes when I feel like I want to question GOD or be angry or feel sorry for us, HE slaps me in the face with a "so you want to question me huh? well, here you go"!!!! Our faith is strong and it will continue to be strong; Every once in awhile I just need a reminder that #WEGOTTHIS!!!! Our #Middlebird is STRONG and a FIGHTER! and she WILL beat this!! #Cancersucks #fuzzyhairdontcare #Stillsmiling
Looks like we might be fighting for Morgan's medical care more than we thought or hoped! RIDICULOUS! Morgan's care is far too important to sit back and accept what they want to give! We have to fight to keep the best Drs. And fight to get her treatment she needs....again.... RIDICULOUS!! but we're not going to stop until we get what we feel she needs and what we know she deserves!! We're looking at changing her Chemo regime and being seen here in the City more often. Travel expenses and everything that comes with it will be increased also so we have raised our goal! We want to THANK all of our supporters, we can't even begin to tell you how much you are appreciated!! We've been blessed with an abundance of love, prayers and support and we are forever thankful!! ♥ #WEGOTTHIS #TeamMorgan #Fuzzyhairdontcare #Middlebird #Stillsmiling #PRAYwithoutceasing #oursupportersarethebest
Sorry I kept everyone waiting for an update but today was EXTREMELY frustrating! We have Blue shield however our medical group decided to DENY Morgan's MRI! The MRI she NEEDS to evaluate how much her tumor is or is not shrinking in her brain!! An MRI that can determine any life threatening problems that may or may not have occurred (but we COULD pay "approx $8, 000.00" out of pocket if we'd like) REALLY??? Then WHY do I have Insurance???. .... UGH!!! OH WAIT, I also forgot to say that her platelets and blood counts are what her Dr. called "critically low" and they also DENIED those!!! Why??? Because UCSF is out of network, so they want us to drive her SICK to drive 4 hours to Madera get an MRI and transfusions then drive 4 hours back to see our Drs.??? WOW that makes sense!! Don't get me wrong I am completely appreciative that we have good insurance, I thank GOD for that everyday however my kiddos health is WAY more important than these games they want to play!! And for what??? To MAYBE save a few bucks!!! #dontmakemamabeastcomeoutshesnotpretty!! May be time to look at other plans!!!! I would like to say that as HARD as our Medical teams fought for us today I KNOW we're in GREAT hands Medically! #Cancersucks #middlebird #WEGOTTHIS
Well the #middlebird is back in the hospital. She's been getting headaches, not sleeping, feeling dizzy and nauseous, she won't drink and has diarrhea. They have her on fluids and pain meds and thankfully she is resting!! We might have been thrown this minor set back but because of our amazing supporters we KNOW that #Wegotthis! Please continue to pray for our family♥ and if you feel up to it make a donation, #TeamMorgan appreciates all your help!!! THANK YOU!!!
The girls #'s were good this week so NO transfusion! Thank you Lord!! NOW if we can just get her to sleep through the nite without the leg pain and on and off headaches. Lord I know you've got us!!! Please keep praying and if you feel like donating that helps too! #middlebird #cancersucks #Wegotthis
So we had Chemo today and the #middlebird is doing well, just tired! We're hoping that she keeps feeling well!!! *fingers crossed* so thankful for our Wonderful NP Mary Mott Okimoto, she will ALWAYS hold a special place in our hearts!! Now......LET'S DO THIS!!! ♥ #TeamMorgan #cancersucks #middlebird
Morgan's make a wish trip was completely AMAZING!!! she did so well and hit as many parks as she could handle. Her favorite part of the trip was "spending the day at Hogwarts with my sisters and staying at Give Kids the world"!!! We're almost at our goal and we'd REALLY like to surpass it!!! Let's go!!! Forget the water challenge donate here!!!!! Much love!!!♥
We're almost there!!! Thank you to everyone who has donated! Morgan's Make-A-Wish trip is right around the corner. ....eeeekkkk!!! She's sooo excited! !! We are hoping her counts are back up by Sunday! !! Please keep her in prayer!!!! Okay now let's see if we can reach or pass this goal!!!! #TeamMorgan #cancersucks #middlebird
So yesterday Morgan saw the eye Dr. And had her MRI. Today we had blood drawn, an EKG and waited patiently to see the oncologist to get results. As of now Morgan's tumor has shown some shrinkage. There is still quite a bit of hard tumor left but for being off the chemo for a bit she still had improvement. YAY!!! We are going in for Chemo treatment on Thursday. ... only for the Carbo and for the next few month's only once a month and see how that affects her body! *finger and Toes crossed* that it works!!! Please continue to pray for us!! All of you have kept us lifted and we appreciate it!! Don't forget to donate! Any $ amount helps! #Wegotthis #cancersucks #Baldisbeautiful #nohairdontcare #middlebird
Just to give you all a little more info in case you're wondering why I am pushing so hard for Morgan's fundraisers and why I am asking for donations on my CTB at work..... Morgan has Brain Cancer. Her tumor is approx 5 by 5 cm's and is not like typical tumors like hers that lay on top of her brain, her tumor runs through her brain tissue. They have gone in once to biopsy it and hoped that by doing that they could collapse most of it well that didn't happen. It didn't collapse as they jad hoped! Morgan's tumor continues to grow so the chemo is strictly to keep it from growing. The likely hood of it shrinking with chemo alone is not likely. Because of this tumor Morgan is completely blind in her left eye and has approx 2/3 rds vision left in her right eye. The goal at this point is to preserve the vision she has which isn't a given. Anything can happen! Morgan is in for the fight of her life and she is gonna need me to be by her side through this fight!! Chemo has been stopped at this point because her body just can't handle it! We go for reevaluation the first week of August and hopefully they can find a chemo that allows her to have somewhat of a normal 6th grade year. Home schooling is looking like a possibility. Radiation will be thrown in there somewhere and last and hopefully for her sake they will not have to open her brain up completely and go in (that is a dangerous procedure) and although we have the best of the best there are always severe side effects to that type of procedure!! All your help is appreciated and none of it goes unnoticed!!!! My baby needs her mommy home and truthfully her mommy NEEDS to be with her! Nothing is too little and everything counts! Whether it's a donation or hours on my CTB~ Thankful ALWAYS~ The Buffaloe family
So I'm sitting here thinking about the journey our family is up for and it breaks my heart because I know before it gets better it's gonna get worse! If I could take EVERY Poke EVERY bit of pain EVERY loss of hair I would do it without question!!! I believe GOD has a plan for us so I won't ever question why but I need to know we are doing this for a reason!!! If Morgan's strength and smile gets one other person through this her job is done!! It amazes me that through all her pain and fear she still finds time to worry about those who are less fortunate than her! My 11yr old has become my hero!!! I worry that financially I won't be able to stay home with her when she needs me the most! For the most part we lean on HIM to give us the answers but we also are leaning ALL of you to keep us lifted with prayers and donations!! We are not asking for money to spend on frivolous dinners or unnecessary purchases. We are asking for help to keep us going so that Morgan can have the comfort of one parent staying home with her through tje rough Chemo, Drs. Appts. out of town and those days where she is too sick to get out of bed! We have to humble ourselves to the fact thay without help we can't make this work to her best benefit! ! So whether you order a #TeamMorgan tee from #ChavezCouture or some delish body products from #Lush-#ious #lamb or buy a print from #brittneylaurenphotography or a fabulous hat or accessory from #mommypowerscreations (all on my fb page) or a simple donation here on #fundme or #fundrazr ALL Proceeds will benefit #TeamMorgan on this journey I hope none of you ever have to experience!!! So please take a moment to donate something, anything!!! No amount is too small, no order is insignificant! We appreciate each amd everyone of you! And you will ALL hold a special place in our heart's. Of you would like to donate time to my time bank there is also a post on that on fb or you can email me at email@example.com for more info! Thank you all for your time and help none of it has gone unnoticed! ! Much Love~ The Buffaloe Family
Don't forget to donate!!! No amount is too small! Hopefully this hospital stay is a short one! Tonight during our prayers it was Morgan's turn to bless me and as she is (in her dilaudid state if mind...lol) she says "Dear GOD PLEASE make my mom only cry happy tears cuz I'm never leaving her and We got this"! She looks at me and says "okay"? As I nod my head because I'm afraid the tears may pour and never stop she says "okay then....AMEN"!! When did she become my parent? Such an old soul! I am truly blessed with AMAZING kids!
We're Almost there!!! $$$$ Please read Morgan's story! No donation is too small. Everything helps!! Thank you to those of you who have already donated!! Much Love! We have Chemo again tomorrow and Morgan is NOT looking forward to it! She's had a rough week. Lots of body pain and tiredness! Please keep her lifted!! ♥
So Morgan had her 2nd Chemo treatment yesterday.... All I can say is CHEMO SUCKS! My baby girl is having a rough day today. She blows my mind with how strong she is! She usually puts on her smile and keeps pushing! Today she gets a break from that! ANY donation helps! No $ amount is too small!!! THANK YOU! !
Tomorrow Morning Morgan is having her Medi-port put in. Surgery is set for 7am. Chemo will start soon after. On her birthday of all days!!! but we will find a way to celebrate anyway!
Trust in God and do good, and all of God's wonderful blessings will be yours forever Psalms 37
So were back home!!! YAY!!! We are exhausted but together!!! The bags can wait to be put away tomorrow.....Tonight we chill!! This coming week we start physical Therapy, some eye therapy and find out the date for Chemo start! Please continue to keep us lifted and pray the Chemo works for Morgan! We are hoping for NO more surgeries!! We are so proud of our #middlebird!! #dynamitecomesinsmallpackages
Today was a Great day for Morgan!! Drs. Appt. Went well. More blood work tomorrow. Then if everything looks okay we'll be set for phase 2 of our journey! Thanks to Koret Family House in San Francisco We got to enjoy a Giants Baseball game! Lil ones had a blast!! Still trying to reach our goal! $$$ Any amount helps!! Thanks!!
We're back at it again this week! Taveling to Drs. Appts! Morgan is starting to get a little more nervous but our faith is strong and we know "We've got this"!! You all have made a tremendous lift in our spirits and your continued prayers, good thoughts and amazing juju have kept us lifted, in more ways than one!! Thank you for the continued support! We've almost reached our goal.....WooHoo!! ♥
Yesterday felt like We had nothing in the world to worry about!! Morgan was happy to see her friends and teachers and everyone was happy to see her! Sometimes it's the little things that matter most! ♥ Wherever this journey leads us we have lots who are following right behind!!♥ THANK YOU!♥
First night out of the hospital and the lil bird is loving it! Went for a stroll through the city (in her wheelchair) She loved the fresh air!! She hasn't regained her strength quite yet and she's definitely gonna need some healing time before the next phase begins...... We will be in the city till she sees her Neurosurgeon on Wednesday then we will be home for some rest and healing for about 2 weeks before starting Chemo treatments. We are hoping and praying that the next step works and we don't have to go through another surgery. One of the things we are hoping to avoid is any more vision loss! We know that with faith and a great support system we will conquer this! Thank you for continuing to keep us lifted! From our family to yours YOU ALL ROCK!!♥
So the #Middlebird is sleeping peacefully and I am sitting here just thinking...... Without each one of you who has taken the time to send well wishes, gifts, donations, phone calls, Visits, Prayers and Love there is NO way we could have gotten through this! We still have a LONG road ahead and the next chapter of this story isn't gonna be easy but with as much as we've been lifted by our friends and family we know we've got this!!! Once again like my wise lil bird said "We might not be great but we're okay"! It isn't for us to question why, it's just our responsibility to pick up the pieces and adjust!! Our biggest blessing is we're all together as a family and besides this little bump in the road our #3lilbirds are Happy, Blessed and Loved! ♥ Much, Much Love to you ALL!!
Last night and today have been a little rough! Morgan is pushing through of course and always with her smile! Once again we would like thank those who have donated and those who are praying. You all are keeping us lifted and we Thank you!♥
So they couldn't remove the whole tumor because of the size and major nerves and veins that are running through it.The Drs. don't want to take the chance of severing anything. Now we wait for the next step. Possibly Chemo???.... not quite sure yet. Whatever is gonna help our baby bird is what we'll do!! Gonna do another MRI to see just how much collapsed with what they removed, wait for the biopsy results and PRAY!!!
Thank you to all who have kept us lifted in pray and to all of you who have donated so far! Scott and I cannot express in words our gratitude! You all are amazing! !!
I never in a million years thought that we would need to start a fund me account for medical reasons for one of our children but today we are finding ourselves asking for donations for our daughter Morgan Buffaloe two days ago we went to the emergency room for a headache and ended up on an ambulance on our way to a Children's Hospital for a brain Tumor! You can imagine the days we have had and have ahead of us! Fortunately we have the most AMAZING 10 year old ever and she is STRONG and ready to FIGHT! Any help is appreciated and your PRAYERS are requested also! We will THANK each of you in advance now!
