McKynsie Faith and Her Journey: UPDATE

Hi everyone!

As some of you may remember, BowPosh, a division of Laura C Cole & Co. began a campaign in 2015 called BowPosh for Smiles  that would allow small businesses and individuals to come together to help add extra smiles to some very brave children battling cancer at Golisano Children's Hospital in Fort Myers, FL. BowPosh teamed up with a couple of small business owner friends who helped put together gift bags for the children and their families which included hair accessories for the girls, bow ties for the bows, toys, art supplies, stickers, scrap booking supplies, Thirty One keychains and lunch totes for dad, Younique mascara and makeup for moms, as well as other fun activities to help keep the kiddos happy during long hospital stays.

This visit was a chance for us to give back and let these families know that there are others who care about what they are going through even if we didn't get a chance to speak with them all.

After this visit, Jennifer, the mother of McKynsie, who was admitted the week prior gave us photos which made our day as well!! Jennifer just so happens to be a beautiful lady we went to school with and McKynsie is fighting ALL.

Here is McKysnie's update!! Follow her journey on FACEBOOK for more updates.

Be BRAVE is exactly what this fighter has been. What you see in most updates are the positives, but you don't see all of the struggles. We cannot even imagine what these children and their families go through, especially those who haven't been there. Those of you who have, our prayers are with you, and you ARE brave as well.

Just like any battle there are ups and downs but the best UP here is that this long battle will be nearly over in October! Just in time for this beautiful family to welcome their NEW addition!!

Congratulations to the Jones family!!!!

Latest page update: "Counts were good and right where they needed to be, so treatment continues! McKynsie goes back in two weeks for her Vincristine, antibiotic infusion and starts 5 days of steroids. We have a lot to celebrate because today marks two years since our lives completely changed...the day McKynsie Faith was diagnosed with leukemia. What a two year roller coaster this has been! We have seen the true colors of many friends and family members, met some amazing people and learned so muc...h about life and what is truly important. We learned to appreciate all things, big and small, good and bad. Our faith grew stronger in the Lord and we gained strength as a family unit. Now, as a family, we will celebrate our sweet girl and her strength during this storm, giving thanks for how well she is doing today, not taking any moment of this journey for granted. Thank you for all the love and support for our family during these past two years! We appreciate you all!" ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›
