Optional question where you can tell us more about you, your child, your reasons to be here, or simply introduce yourself.
Hello, my name is Shannon McNitt. My son, Triston, was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 2, 2006. He is currently 12 years old and in remission. My reason for being here is that I want to do everything that I can to help find a cure for all childhood cancers and put an end to all of the pain and suffering that these children and their families must endure.
Keep your Hope alive - we were told last year that Hope had a couple of spots on the right side of the brain and they could not be definitive as to what they were - they were totally gone in July when she had her MRI at St. Jude and that was confirmation that she was healed since all of her scans were clear and the doctors were in disbelief for a while. God can do what He chooses, and I will also visualize that the spots on Shannon will disappear. Blessings to you. Kay
the truth is, we just received a scan with spots on his spine...and they are too small to consider...5mm in size...yet we consider it something because of our journey to hell and back with medullo...but for now, we have to wait a couple of months until they will rescan...annette
Love the pictures of your son ....how AWESOME that he is in remission.....such wonderful news to hear! Thank you for your kind words ....I miss my girl so much, but I try to live my life in ways that honor her memory. God has blessed us, and although Krista was only with us for 14 years, the impact of her presence will live on in our lives forever. Hug that sweet Triston every chance you get....and give him one from me too! I pray that his health continues to improve with each passing day - I know he has much to do in this world - what a gift he must be to you and your family! With love, Pam
We are hoping and praying to be able to be proactive in this battle. Thank you for welcoming us, we are so thrilled to be a part of such a worthy cause...we will be much more thrilled when we can look back and say, "remember when kid's had cancer?"...until that day, we will fight!!
Hello. I got your name off of Tammy's site. I am glad that your son is in remission. Our son is also in remission from osteosarcoma, for two years.. He had it in his leg but did not have an allograft. He had something else that I can't spell ..He is doing well, too. Our son was 12 when he was diagnosed and is now 14. Nice to meet you!
I would love to talk to you more. Taylor also has an allograft, hers is doing well, its her bone that is resorbing. She had a bone graft in June of this year, we saw the surgeon on Oct 6th, guess what, it is not working either. He has recommended a different surgery, we are getting a second opinion. Email me @ email@example.com and if you don't mind send me a # , please put your name in subject line, I seem to be getting lots of junk lately and delete it if I do not know who is sending it. I would love to talk to you about Triston's surgeries. Thanks so much, Tammy
Hi Shannon! You have a handsome lil man youself! It's good to hear that Triston is in remission! Isn't this place amazing!? I didn't get to comment anybody back yesterday because I had like 30 tabs open and was reading so much info that I didn't even know - mainly about the funding...
Shannon, thanks and so is yours! I cannot imagine going through what you cancer moms and dads have to endure with your children. I am honored to do what I can for the many children who suffer from this monster.
