On May 8,2015 our world changed forever. Our princess, Teiya Camille is about to show how strong she is as we fight to remove a brain tumor that was found. We are awaiting our referral off-island where she will be seen by a neurosurgeon and have tests done to determine what type of tumor she has. Anyone who has even spent a few minutes with Teiya knows that she is a tough spunky little girl who has just the right mix of mommy and daddy's attitude. She has shown us how strong she is in this past week and pray she continues to surprise us as this journey has just began. We kindly ask that you please keep her in your prayers. We humbly ask for your support as we fight right beside our little girl. We love you all and please please keep our princess in your prayers.

Day 13/30 complete

Today was the final day in the first stage of radiation which was full cranium and full spine. The next 17 days will consist of radiation to the spine and a boost to where Teiya's original tumor developed. She has been such a trooper during this part of treatment and has not complained once. This past week she went to Chamorro practice and LOVES it! It's such a joy seeing her dance and interacting with kids and basically enjoying life. On the weekend there are no appointments and she is de accessed :) The only thing letting the rest of world know
she has cancer is her beautiful bald head. That word....it takes a lot out of me to say or even wrote the C word because I hate it so much. We continue to remain positive and stay strong on our faith because HOPE, LOVE, FAITH, FAMILY, & FRIENDS is what keeps us moving along. Thank you for all prayers and love #teamteiya #nevergiveup #blessed #princesswarrior

Day 1/30 of radiation complete. Nerves were crazy this morning as it was getting everything figured out with her low dose of chemo, zofran and then an hour of hydration before she gets sedated for radiation. It feels like starting all over again because we don't know how Teiya will react to radiation. I pray the side effects are minimal, there are side effects that scare us but what scares us more is this tumor returning. My heart was extremely heavy today because back home our dear friend Marie Jo was saying her final goodbye to her beloved Samantha. It hits you right in the gut that cancer is (excuse my mouth) a BITCH and takes precious lives everyday. We are extremely grateful for everything that God has blessed us with and continue on this journey but some days it's hard. Thank you to our family and friends for everything that you have done for our family and most especially Teiya. #teamteiya #nevergiveup #braincancer #warriorprincess

Teiya update:

We got results back from her MRI and Lumbar Puncture and both show no signs of cancer cells. Thanks be to God. We also went over her radiation plan which now includes a daily low dose chemo of Carboplatin which her oncologists advised studies show radiation has been more effective with this chemo med given prior to radiation. My nerves are a bit uneasy as this is new to us, Teiya did not do radiation during her previous treatment and I'm praying she takes this well and the side effects are not so harsh on her. There's a lot that goes into her radiation plan and her team is always keeping us well informed. Please pray for a smooth 30 days for Teiya and that her body handles this radiation like the champ that she is.

We love you all and thank you for continuously praying for our baby girl! #teamteiya #braincamcer #warriorprincess
My warrior princess!

Teiya update!

Today we met with her wonderful Oncologists and NP to
go over her MRI and lumbar puncture results. We are so thankful and blessed that these past two rounds of chemo cleared her spine of the remaining cancer cells and her brain continue to be clear of cancer cells lumbar puncture results showed no cancer cells as well. Tears of joy! We then went over the next steps for treatment which is radiation, we opted out of radiation in 2015 due to Teiya's age and at that point it wasn't required but more so we had a choice. This time because the tumor came back, radiation is necessary and it takes a lot of planning and discussions on all that goes into it. We are confident in our team and especially her Oncologist Dr. Margol who we love beyond words along with her neurosurgeon and all who continue to care for our warrior princess.

I can never seem to really put into words how blessed we are to have you all in our life. In no way is this easy but we have the best family, friends, and prayer warriors around. BJ and I love you all!
