Our 4 year old niece Greta was recently diagnosed with stage 4 Burkitt's Lymphoma and is at the beginning of a six-month chemo plan that will keep her in the hospital almost every other week between now and October with rehab into 2020. We may be biased, but Greta is the most amazing, fierce and joyful child who makes friends with everyone (she is already a hit with the nurses) and we all are devastated that she has to go through this.

Although Greta is receiving excellent medical care at Mott Children’s Hospital, this is going to be a very challenging time for everyone involved, especially her parents Emily and Misha who will need to rearrange their lives to provide Greta with round the clock care with a lot of uncertainties. It’s also likely to have a lasting impact on Greta’s life.

We want Emily and Misha to be able to fully focus on supporting and dedicating time to Greta during this long road to remission while also having time to spend with Nell, Greta's 2 year old sister. They should not have to hesitate due to money, so please consider donating what you can. Donations will go toward living expenses such as house cleaning, gas to and from hospital, parking, food, mortgage, and keeping the lights on, as well as trips to chemo friendly places such as indoor water parks, museums, and aquariums - on any days that Greta feels well enough to venture out during and after treatment. We appreciate all the support, good energy, happy thoughts, and prayers as well. Let's all help them beat this together!!

Love from Greta’s aunties Adrienne and Becki

Update from Emily 4/16: Today, we made Cheerio treats, played piano, decorated in sparkles, and played in Riverside Park. It was our first full day at home that Greta felt well enough to enjoy. Tomorrow we head into phase 2 of this treatment, another intense blast of chemo starting with a handful of procedures to scan her body for signs of lymphoma. Thank you for all of the support that you have generously given our family. This is hard, but so much easier with you all by our sides.

Update from Peggy 4/14 : Greta the Great was well enough to come home today. The day was spent playing with her sister, making Angel Biscuits with me and just enjoying hanging out with her family. A lovely respite of “normal” with added hyper vigilance guarding against germs and viruses.
Tomorrow begins Phase 2 of Chemo at 7:30 am outpatient. Then back on the chemo unit at Mott Wednesday morning for at least a week. Because she is doing so well, they are starting chemo early. It is a little bitter sweet.

Update from Emily 4/11: After almost a week in the ER, ICU, and Cancer floor, Greta is officially improving! Her counts are much better, her spirits are higher, and she’s able to drink clear liquids. Woo! We’ll probably still be here until Sunday or early next week while she transitions to food and off this wild iv nutrient bag. It’s amazing how easy it is to take for granted a healthy body. This picture is a little blurry but I love how I can hear her laugh when I look at it. ❤️

Updated from Emily 4/8: We noticed Greta’s hair falling out yesterday so decided to shave today. She helped me shave Misha first then sat perfectly still while I shaved her head. We love her fiercely.
