Chemotherapy has begun

Ellie had her first chemo treatment today and so far is handling it well. She will be treated with the chemo for three days, then have 18 days off treatment. The news of losing her hair was a shock for her, but she is getting into the idea of being creative with her hair before it falls out, as well as fun things to do after she loses it. She had a bone marrow test the other day, but John and Sarah are still waiting for the results. Soon the doctors will be testing for the area of Ellie's body where the cancer began.

Please pray:

1.) For Ellie's physical strength as well as emotional strength through the treatments.
2.) For the family's continued encouragement and strength.
3.) That the Lord would be glorified.

Thanks again for your love and prayers for Ellie and her family and friends.
