Cadence's Battle With Cancer

Cadence has always been a beautiful and vibrant young girl. This summer, her life changed  very dramatically-she became feverish, started to have back and leg pain and become very pale. On August 28th she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphatic Leukemia. We are lucky that she has made it through the initial induction of chemotherapy at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth, but she will need 2 more years of inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy treatments.

I have had no other option, but to take the next few months off of work to take care of her, which means we have no family income.   I am reaching out now for some help with our daily expenses (mortgage and utilities), so that we can carry on until January. I plan to return to my position of English Instructor at Franklin Pierce for the Spring Term.

Today is a great day for us.  After 5 weeks in the hospital, we are finally returning home for the first time.  Cadence remains in good spirits, and we are hopeful that she will be able to return to school a couple days a week.

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide us in this extraordinary time of need.
