You may remember me talking about the strength and Courage of Angel Christi Thomas and her parents as she entering her final hours here on earth and the Cell Line they wanted to try and establish as her last act here. All though I think it was an easy decision for them to make it was a huge sacrifice to allow her body to be violated one last time after her death to obtain the blood needed for the Cell line and there was only a 20% chance that it would even grow. Shane and Angela were informed today by the amazing Dr. Maris that they were in fact able to establish the line that will be used to continue to fight for a cure! How do you ever Thank someone for something like this? We will always keep Christi alive in our memories and we will always keep Shane, Angela and Shayla in our hearts! If you are confused by the title of this entry, it is the name of Christi's Cell line per the Thomas request and I think its pretty self explanatory. The cell line is basically disease that can be used by researchers to be hit with drugs in the hopes of finding a cure for Neuroblastoma!
We continue to hold on to hope that Eden is strong enough to continue to fight until a cure is found and we will stand behind her and support her for as long as it takes. Thank you all for helping us get a present under the tree for Eden and we are so very close. She still continues to look at it every day and everyday is so excited at how close we are getting. Every $$ gets us that much closer to a cure as well.
I have tons of pictures to add and as soon as the hostage situation is over I will be all over downloading them...
Thanks for checking in!
