These two are both essential front line employees and this will no doubt be a tough battle with what is going on in our world today.  Thank you all for your support!!

Here is some words from Cara herself:

Hey all. Thank you for your prayers. We feel them. We know God is holding us and will carry us through this.
Allow me to start from the beginning. Monday, March 30th, Kassidy came up to me asking if she had strep because she had bumps on her neck. When I examined her neck, both sides had very prominent lymph nodes. It alarmed me right away. She hadn’t been around anyone! She didn’t have any other symptoms. She was her normal, happy, giggly, singing self. I called her doc and we were seen right away. We were sent home on an antibiotic as this was thought to be a possible strep infection. April 2nd her lymph nodes were still prominent and there appeared to be more that were noticeable to me. I called Dr Rahman back and was able to video confrence with him. He was concerned and asked us to come in for blood work. We did this and went about our day. I went to work, Mike was at work and the girls were with their grandma.
Hours later, I was called by her physician and asked to come meet with him at his office to discuss labs. I left work and met him. When he showed me her lab work I was shocked. Her white blood cell count was extremely elevated (84,000) as well as her blast cells (26). Everything pointed to leukemia.
This was confirmed as acute lymphoblastic leukemia when we were admitted to Lurie Children’s this past Thursday. She will start chemotherapy tomorrow April 6th. It will be a tough week.47201276_1586117339940583_r.jpeg
