What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

I'm trying to hold back tears as I write this.  About 8 weeks ago, Anne Marie's best friend was diagnosed with leukemia. She is 9 years old. She is brave, beautiful and has the best family in the world.

We adore them all and watching our neighborhood pull together for this family, and seeing the love my daughter has for her friend have been beautiful to say the least.

Well, she is currently at Seattle Children's Hospital undergoing treatment. One of the other patients there, made an awesome video and guess what? Jenna is in it! It has gone viral and was featured on the Today show.

I cried buckets as I watched it. Jenna is the one holding the sign that says Stronger. And she also has some pretty good moves later on in the video.

And those nurses? What great sports. Who wouldn't want them taking care of your child?

Watch. Try not to cry. I dare you.

(That's Jenna in the screen shot)


  1. I watched this earlier today and it is so sweet. Children's Hospital is the most amazing place and I'm so glad she's getting such tremendous care.

    We'll add her and Anne-Marie to our prayers.

  2. A little girl the same age just finished her treatment at Childrens. She is home now and doing great! She is in my Activity Day group. I will add my prayers for Anne Marie and Jenna.

  3. Awww! This video is so sweet!

  4. You are right--not crying is impossible!
