  1. I knw a family here who had a little girl with brain cancer. I lost touch with them a while back, but the last I heard she was in remission and doing well. Cost them a fortune, though, both in money and time. Anything to speed up the process and get kids cancer-free and their families back to normal is a good thing.

  2. This weekend in New Orleans is Hogs for the Cause, a barbecue fundraiser for pediatric brain cancer patients. Yesterday was a total rain out. I saw a news interview with one of the cooking participants who was discouraged by the weather situation, until he went to a meeting to discuss alternate plans. That’s when a man spoke to the group about his daughter, her battle, and how important the event is to his family and others. The group decided to cancel last night’s festivities and forge ahead today. We have gorgeous weather today, and I’m sure the event will be a huge success. There are so many messages in there. 🙂

  3. While I have not been touched by pediatric brain cancer personally, I do have hydrocephalis or fluid on the brain, which I’ve at least had since birth, although it wasn’t picked up until my mid-20s. I recently was researching Roald Dahl for the A-Z Challenge which Cheryl here is participating in. It is not commonly known that Roald Dahl helped invent an early version of the Shunt, which is used to brain excess CFS fluid from the brain. His son’s pram was hit by a taxi when he was only 4 months old and he developed hydrocephalis.
    However, Dahl’s experiences with the neurology began when he had a plane crash during WWII and fractured his own skull. Moreover, his wife actress Patricia Neale had a burst aneurism which cause a stroke and Dahl developed a complex and demanding rehab scedule which got her back into acting.
    I share this here in case anybody affect by neuro troubles is looking for inspiration. You can read my full post here: https://beyondtheflow.wordpress.com/2016/04/05/d-roald-dahl-letters-to-dead-poets-atozchallenge/
    I would like to send my heart felt best wishes and prayers to anyone affected by similar challenges.It is such a lonely, terrifying road but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

    • I am sorry that you have to deal with fluid on the brain. Thank you for sharing the interesting information on Roald Dahl. I have put the link you sent me in favorites and will check it out tomorrow. Take care.

      • Thanks very much, Cheryl. It was certainly a weird and challenging journey. As research into neuroplasticity continues, I am finding out more and more about some of the quirkier things I experienced, which has also been quite fascinating. Of course, I’m very thankful that I’m doing so well xx Rowena
