Paxten Pearson

Some of you know my good friends Tamar and Tiffany and their family.  Growing up, the Teschke’s were like a second family to me.  Tamar and Tiffany, who lived two houses down, were my best friends since before I was Olivia’s age.  Their youngest sister, Libby, has a 9 month old little girl named Paxten.  On Saturday, they found out that Paxten has leukemia.  She has the B Cell form of Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL) the most common form of leukemia in children under the age of 20.  I ask for your prayers for this precious family and the battle ahead.  They do have a caringbridge page set up at:

Awww, man, cancer sucks! This is the exact reason why I will be doing my super hero capes after Christmas! Would you mind sending me their address or having them contact me? I would love to make her a tiny little super hero cape:) My prayers are with them.

I can't believe how cute Paxten is! Well, I guess I can since Libby was always such a cutie. I'm glad that Libby and Blake have such a strong support system to help them during this difficult time. Paxten just looks like a fighter and I hope desperately that she gets well so very soon.
