Day 1199: The Final Countdown

Day 1192: Elliott meets with representatives from the Make-A-Wish foundation.

I can't believe it. We are almost there. In two more days Elliott will be done with chemo! We give him his last dose at home on Monday evening.

The past few weeks have been so exciting. In addition to all the conversations about ending treatment, Elliott was selected as a Team in Training honored hero for the Austin Marathon by Avery Denision, who is using the event to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We also learned that Elliott is going to be a Make-A-Wish kid. We met with representatives from Make-A-Wish North Texas last week to discuss some of his favorite things at a party hosted by Dave and Busters.

To celebrate Elliott's end of treatment the Codys are participating in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light The Night event on November 11th. The half mile walk begins shortly after sunset in Trinity Groves. Survivors will carry white lanterns, supporters red lanterns, and gold lanterns will be carried in memory. (Celebrating by illuminating the darkness and making strides towards a cure.)  Some family and friends are joining us for the event and will be wearing team Elliott t-shirts. Let us know if you are interested in walking with us at the event. (Call, email, or leave a comment.) Kyllan has been raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society through the event. Please visit Kyllan's Team Elliott fund raising page if you are interested in donating.
