Cancer Sucks!!

Do you know someone who is always optimistic, always smiling, always has a hug ready to greet you,  one that is devoted and kind? All of these adjectives describe my sweet cousin Britney to a tee.

 In 2009, Britney was diagnosed with Leukemia, 5 short months after getting married. The news was obviously devastating to her and her family. Britney fought hard, she was determined to beat this once and for all. She received treatment for two years and in 2011 was deemed cancer free.

Britney has always been nurturing and wanted more than anything to be a Mom. She wasn't sure that this goal would be realistic after years of chemo, radiation and all the other treatments involved. I know miracles exist, they happen everyday. We were all witnesses to a miracle. The fact that Britney's desires of motherhood were possible and she was able to have a healthy baby boy is indeed a miracle.

In June of this year after not feeling so well, Britney received the devastating news that the Leukemia had returned in vengeance. She is currently undergoing heavy doses of chemo, radiation and will soon go in for a bone marrow transplant.

Britney would do everything and anything to help out someone in her same situation. I want to return the favor to her by spreading the word and asking all of you to pray for Britney Graham and her family to have the health and strength to fight and win this battle.

If you live locally in Utah, this Saturday there will be a 5k/bake sale with boutique items as well as a silent auction. I am going to be donating a E-Design room makeover. If you can not make it to the event on Saturday, this deserving family could use all the help they can get.

There has been an account set up in Britney's behalf on her blog, any donations of any amount would help tremendously and be greatly appreciated! There is power in numbers, if you can help spread the word by re posting we will be forever grateful~

We are hoping and praying for a miracle. We love you Britt!
