Tatum was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her leg and an area on her spine.  Osteosarcoma is a rare form of bone cancer that happens in children.  More importantly though, Tatum is a beautiful, energetic eight year old young lady who loves hanging out with friends and playing soccer and basketball.  She is very fortunate to be surrounded by loving family, friends, church and community.  As many of you know all too well, the fight to defeat cancer can be a long and expensive battle, which is why we are asking for your help. Whether its your daily prayers, notes of encouragement, and/or monetary donations, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  We serve a mighty God and we will WIN this fight! #TatumTough

It's been 15 days since our angel gained her wings. Talk about life coming to a screeching halt. For almost 2 years we have either lived at the hospital, or on the road to Dr appointments. We've given countless amounts of medication, many hours of physical therapy, and in any free time, we would do our best to LIVE life! We would do it all again in a heartbeat. We would do it again so we'd not have just 3 piles of laundry and not set the dinner table for just 3 people....we would do it again for the next 50 years if need be. But, in that same sentence, I know that after Tatum's experience in Heaven, she wouldn't! She wouldn't even come home if given the opportunity. And she shouldn't! She deserved Heaven so very much, and we couldn't be more proud of her and what she accomplished here on Earth in her short 9 years (almost 10). We want to thank you all for all the support you have given us the past 2 years, but especially the past 2 weeks. The cards, texts, food, flowers, donations to the Tatum Tough Foundation, etc are just unbelievable, but most importantly the prayers! We were just talking last night about the peace that we all have about us that we just don't understand, but we know it can only be provided by God and prayers. It's an amazing feeling, and we couldn't be more thankful. We only wish we could hug each one of you and personally and thank you individually! We truly hope you know how grateful we are!! Our mission for the Tatum Tough Foundation will be to allow Tatum's legacy to live on. We want to help others...not only those battling cancer, but anything that requires or shows a #tatumtough attitude. We want to spread His word, and to continue to change lives like she so courageously taught us!

At 3:00 this afternoon our sweet angel gained her wings and is sitting on the lap of Jesus....SHE WON, SHE IS WHOLE, AND SHE IS CANCER FREE! She's running around with both legs and a long blonde ponytail! She deserved HEAVEN so much and we are SO proud of her! We are so very blessed by this child who changed the world! We are thankful for the promise of HEAVEN and eternal life together! Our time on this earth is only a spec compared to an eternity together in Heaven!

We thank you for your prayers!

We have really tried to avoid this post, but we want to update all of our prayer warriors. Our days with Tatum are limited and we are enjoying every second with her. At this time we ask that you continue to pray for peace and comfort that surpasses all understanding! God is near to the broken hearted and we feel his presence now more than ever, and we are so thankful for that. We ask for privacy during these last few days...Thank you for praying!!
