Awnee's Fight against Cancer
Awnee’s out patient road map came to an end after only ten days as she developed two types of bacteria in her blood stream, a horrible intestinal infection, and developed a form of Type I diabetes. She has spent a total of 19 days out 29 as in patient since her diagnoses. She is in her hospital bed fighting for her life. Her body is tired, she is being fed through a tube, and yet she still talked to her teachers during a visit today about her personal suggestions for “battle of the books” next year. Her strength is admirable by all of us and her personality untouched by this horrible disease. She has a huge support team in place, yet has years ahead of her to battle this cancer.
Please join us as “TEAM AWNEE” starts to take form in the way of donations (whether that's money or time), or just an added support to her or her family and friends as they take this journey along side her. Awnee’s battle is all of our battle. Join us in letting her know that she is not alone…
Hi Awnee! I wish that I could be there walking with you tonight, just like you did 3 years ago for the Kunz family. I found the picture of us and posted it on Facebook! I will be there in spirit and am spreading the word about what a special young lady you are! I hope our paths will cross soon. Love, Mrs. Giddings
To my Awnee Rose: I read and see how hard you fight to be free from all your pain and to be well. You are courageous and beautiful to me. In one of your pictures a saw your hand, and it looks just like your Mom's hand, tiny and sweet. Maybe you might want to have this note as I have not seen you for a very long time. You are thought about all the time and pray that every day is better than the last. I love you Awnee, stay strong. Have a fun and happy Birthday, Your Grammy loves you now and forever.
