Grace: A Child's Intimate Journey Through Cancer and Recovery

Welcome to Friday, August 5th!

 The very first thing I want to share with you is this video of 10-year-old Lily Anderson singing our National Anthem on 7/28/11.

Lily’s spectacular performance was part of “Rally Night” a special event for kids fighting cancer. Lily has been fighting cancer since she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer in 2009.


Lily, you make me smile the kind of smile that begins on the inside and it grows until it escapes on the outside! I look forward to following your future events!

I am finding it extremely difficult to believe that school begins in less than two weeks… phew! What happens if there are ten billion things I need to do before it begins? I can see you smiling and nodding your heads.

“Get going Melinda! Get going!!!”

Please excuse me while I locate my Warp Drive Button…
