Day in the life: My daughter has cancer — 11 Comments

  1. I have seen many of my family members battle cancer…and it humbles me, when I see them fight the way you do peyton! You make me stronger in helping me fight my chronic health problems, and all the infusions, and daily medications that make me feel so sick sometimes. One thing I have learned is that you have a purpose, and your purpose is to fight, and reading this blog makes me understand what you are going through and I will pray for you and your family. Finally I thank you, keep fight the good fight!
    God Bless

  2. I always wondered what her process was. It was so neat to read. As a Mom so emotional. I wish you all the strength to get through this.

  3. I went through Chemo and radiation for 7 weeks and I would do it 100 times over if it would save one child to ever have to go through it. God Bless you Peyton and your family. You will be in my prayers tonight and overnight.

  4. I pray to God that she has a speedy recovery and is Cancer free very soon.. No child or Mother should have to go threw this..if I had just 1 wish in the world it would be for every child to never be sick or go threw any pain.. my best friend died from Cancer 6 days before my 16th birthday n I took it very,very hard..So I feel like I know what u r going threw I’m also a mother n can’t imagine this for my child or any other..I very much pray she keeps her spirit up n hope to keep me posted on how she is doing.. Children’s hospital is very good n we r lucky to have them.. n my godfather is also battling cancer n not looking good..but God can pull out a miracle. .I believe that..keep the faith n love..

  5. She is a brave little girl I lost my Grandmother and Uncle to cancer they both had chemo once and refused the second treatment because of the side affects and pain.
    God Bless your child , I Pray God removes the cancer from her and heals her and keeps her safe . <3

  6. What a brave little girl you have. I was 17, a junior in high school, when diagnosed with Hodgkins. I am now going on my 30 year anniversary of being cancer free. She will get through this. It sounds like she is in wonderful hands and all you can do for her is just be there for her. God bless you and your sweet little girl.

  7. I just wanted to say Peyton is a Very Strong and Beautiful Young Lady. My Heart goes out to her and you her family. May God always be with and bless you all. May he give you patience and strength, His peace and Love. For Now and Always. Keep up the Great Work Peyton. God Bless You Sweety.

  8. What a well written blog of a day in the life of a family with a child with cancer. My son battled leukemia a number of years ago and was treated at Childrens Hosp of WI. I can relate to your day on so many levels — in fact it brings tears to my eyes reliving it. I found that while going through that tough time, you just do what you have to do and you do it with a lot of strength and courage that you didn’t know you had. I find now years later what an amazingly hard time it really was. I will keep your family in my prayers.

  9. thank you for sharing. Your family is putting Peyton first and pulling together. that is what it is all about. Kudos to you and Brian for doing this as a family. I feel your pain and sadness. Pain shared is lightened. May you feel a bit lighter cuz all of us reading your posts can lift you up. Keep writing. It is therapeutic for everyone. I am related to Dr Dobrozsi. She shared your blog on her FB. My husband had chemo for his Lymphoma 4 years ago. He is doing fantastic. Thanks again for giving us a glimpse of your journey. Keep strong!

  10. Peyton you,your sister and your parents are very brave. In reading this I can feel the love you all have for each other. My prayers are that you will soon be finished with your chemo and cancer free to continue to live your life as it was meant to be. Stay strong! God is with you!!!

  11. Thank you for sharing. Great job Peyton!! We are halfway through radiation treatment with my 5 year old and have been wondering what it will be like to do chemo at the day hospital. It’s so helpful to have it explained by another mother and to see your daughter getting through it successfully. We hate port access, too, but we hated IVs more before we had the port. So thank God for that thing. I will be sure to ask about the Ativan for my little boy at our next appointment. Great idea.
