Courtney Curole Prevost is a mother, wife, a daughter, a law enforcement officer, a leukemia survivor, and a friend. Courtney was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Leukemia on Easter of 2015. She fought. Not only to get through chemotherapy but to get back to her children, her husband and fellow law enforcement officer, Todd, and her passion, law enforcement. Courtney beat Leukemia once. And now she is doing it again. She relapsed. The Leukemia is back. And she is beginning the fight all over again. She is away from her children for the foreseeable future as she now requires a bone marrow transplant after the completion of chemotherapy. Courtney, Todd and their three children need us to lighten their burden. Todd, a veteran law enforcement officer, has already begun steps to start a second job for additional income to supplement the loss of Courtney's. This is a hard working couple who love their children, love their community, and love each other. Neither have ever asked for handouts. Any donations will cover expenses that would otherwise be uncovered due to the loss of Courtney's income. But more importantly, any donation will ease Courtney's fears of burdening her young family and will allow Todd to be present for his children as they enter the next year without their mother at home.

We said goodbye to our beautiful girl today. The leukemia was just too much for her weakened body after her transplant. She held on for so long and she fought so hard. She needed to rest. She left us with her husband by her side, holding her and telling her that it was ok to let go. She was surrounded by love.
As we enter these next days, months, years without her, it is important to remind ourselves not of the sadness of her loss, but of the joy of her life.
Courtney was so incredibly happy. She so loved being Todd's wife, and a mother to her beautiful children. She finally had the life she always dreamed of. The life that she deserved.
How lucky are we to have known her in that happiness. How lucky are we to have known her.
So when tomorrow starts without her, and we think of that gorgeous smile, take the time to be with her and talk for a little while. Tell her that you miss her laugh and that you hope she is settling in. Tell her that you love her and that you will see her again.
When tomorrow starts without her and the memories break your heart, know that you never really are all that far apart. Her love, her strength, her courage... everything that made her her, all of those will still be with us, when tomorrow starts without her.

I was hoping to not have to post another update since we were hoping that Courtney would be discharged after her bone marrow transplant by now. But there's been some setbacks. She has been developing some pretty awful symptoms of graft vs host. Though she was expecting it to be rough, I don't think anyone expected it to be quite so painful for her. She currently struggles to breathe and is unable to walk unassisted after a recent fall.
She is swollen, itching, hurting, and miserable.
Todd has prudently taken some time off of work. Courtney and the kids need him.
Christmas is tough on everyone financially, and Todd and Courtney have been blessed to have some people in their life help them. Let's give them a few more reasons to feel blessed and to get over this hurdle.

Guys I fixed the problem with donations. It hadn't been accepting donations for over a month but it is fixed now and I hope that all of those that tried to donate and couldn't can try again!

Courtney sends her thanks to all of you who were able to come out for her birthday open house. She loved seeing everyone. And those who saw her saw that she was a little tired and a little sick but still as good looking as ever.

Courtney will now go to Ocshner on November 7 for intense chemo to get her blood ready for the bone marrow transplant on November 14.

Courtney's oldest is just learning to drive (which is scarier for Courtney than any chemo could be) and the boys are in grade school. It is going to be a difficult holiday season. She will be away from home for 100 days as her body accepts and begins producing healthy marrow. This phase requires constant monitoring.

Todd continues to work two jobs to support the family. The only thing he has asked for is for friends to send messages of love to his wife. And for everyone to bring the babies around for some hugs.

There's nothing that can make up for Courtney's lost time with her children. But the financial burden can be one less stressor on the family. So please consider donating.

And here's to the next update being news of remission!!!!!

Thank you all,

I was going to send flowers, but I figured the money would be more useful for the kids here. I love you Twila, Christy, Candy, and family. Praying for all of you.
