After two years and four months Collin got to “ring the bell” at Valley Children’s Hospital yesterday. The ringing of the bell indicates that he is FINALLY leukemia and chemo FREE.
Family and friends gathered outside the hospital entrance excitingly waiting for Collin to walk through the doors to witness this momentous occasion. When we saw him, his smile said it all… his lab results were good and he is FINISHED! I think he was a little overwhelmed by the number of people that were there to support him. I know I was.
Oncology… the people that make days like these possible for so many children.
Congratulations Collin. You and your family weathered the storm by staying strong and keeping your eye on this day that I’m sure at times you thought would never come. But here it is, and now it’s time to celebrate… I think we are all more than ready!!
