Please Keep Checking!

I must apologize! It's been entirely too long since I've posted an update on Allison's progress. I'm working on a fun post that includes information on Allison, more pictures, and a FANTASTIC video!

Allison was doing so well after Round 2 of chemo, that her doctor gave her the green light to head home this week. We don't know how long this visit will be, but we are enjoying being home as a complete family.

We're not quite sure what the next step will be because we are awaiting results from her bone marrow test, results should be in next week. The search is still on for a marrow match for her! If you have not already signed up for the National Bone Marrow Registry, please consider doing so! You just might save a life! Please follow this link to register by mail:

Thank you all for your support and continued thoughts and prayers as we continue on this journey.

Warmest Regards,

Allison's Mommy

Don't Forget...Benefit on Saturday!!

Allison's benefit dinner is on Saturday, August, 29th at Buchanan Arms in Burbank!!

Thanks OC Sheriffs

Just ran across the OC Sheriff's Blog, announcing a blood drive, featuring a bone marrow drive for Allison back on August 12th. Big thanks to all involved!

Deputy C.D. Vincent sent an e-mail to Team Allison..."We held the Blood Drive on August 12, 2009. During that time we had a representative from the National Bone Marrow Registry present. We had 44 people stop in and register for the Bone Marrow after seeing the story on Allison. I hope everything works out."

Just me and my shadow....

Well, it may not actually be her shadow, but Allison made friends with her reflection the other night. After playing and walking all day, she caught a glimpse of a little girl in a matching outfit! Check out the video as she talks to, dances with, and even tries to "high five" her reflection!

120 new people are now on the bone marrow registry that were not on it a few days ago! Congrats to Kimberly Haim on such a successful bone marrow registry drive at her home in Sherman Oaks! Be looking for more bone marrow drives to be hosted by Kimberly...she is definitely an amazing woman.

For those of you that hesitate to do a drive in Allison's name, I say to you, "Host it, they will come!"
