Update on Harmony’s Unexpected Adventures

xmas2015-2For those of you following Harmony’s progress since my last post in December, she had her stem cell transplant in January. She spent a little over two weeks in the hospital. The process really wreaked havoc on her body but she’s a tough girl and she hung in there. It was a long road. Thankfully, she’s back in her apartment now, resting and recovering.

If you’d like to read more first-hand progress, please visit her blog.

Thank you to everyone who has wished her well, donated for her cause, or just kept her in your thoughts. Every bit of love and support is appreciated. ❤



“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
~ J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring  

Check out Harmony’s Unexpected Adventures Blog and oh yeah, Cancer Sucks

It’s been almost a year since my niece Harmony was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma. Several rounds of chemo and radiation later, she is still fighting a tough battle. She is preparing for an analogous stem cell transplant in the next few weeks and may even be in the hospital over Christmas. Boo! 😦

Harmony has started a blog where she is sharing her experiences. She hopes to help put more information out there about the type of cancer she is facing and to connect with others who might be going through similar struggles. If you’d like to check out her site and follow her progress, click here. Please share with others that you know who might be interested in learning more or who are facing similar challenges.

You can also visit Harmony’s GoFundMe page to help with medical expenses. So far insurance has been a blessing but you never know when expenses will exceed their limitations or when other unexpected expenses can crop up. Every little bit of support helps immensely! ❤
