We are thrilled and relieved, and we are thankful to our Father and Creator that Eli is once again NED (No Evidence of Disease). His scans are stable, no changes. They have always watched two spots - one at his pituitary, and one on his spine, but they are calling the one scar tissue, and they think the other may be part of his bone. Neither have changed, and the cyst at the back of his head has not changed either. The growth hormone test did not come out as well as we had hoped. He is quite deficient in the hormone, not even close. But, his thyroid is working well, and his pituitary is producing cortisol, so it is working. Thank you all for your petitions to God. We are abundantly blessed. Join our celebration of Eli's one-year-from-treatment clear scan by donating to St. Jude with the purchase of a new Eli shirt! the one he is wearing in these pictures. These are really nice, long-sleeve black shirts with screen-printing in light blue in tribute to our social media lifeline. Eli can sign his name in silver marker on it if you would like, just put it in a comments field when you order, or when you pay. Please, read all options and pay close attention to which link you order from.

1. If you are local to Athens or Madison and want to pick up your shirt and pay cash or check, use this form and submit it. T-Shirt Doc

2. If you are local and can pick up your shirt in Athens or Madison, but want to pay online with a CC via paypal, choose the Local CC link at the bottom of this page.

3. If you need your shirt(s)shipped to you, choose W/Shipping option link and be prepared to only pay with a CC via paypal and use the link at the bottom of the page.

4. If you do not want to use any online form and want to pay cash or check (made out to me, NOT St. Jude), please print this PDF file and mail it and a check to the address on the form, or you may take it to a drop-off site: a dropbox at the ABS library, the Grasshopper downtown Athens, a box in the closet by the annex at Madison church of Chirst, or at my house on the front porch.

5. If  your household wants to purchase more than three shirts, please contact me via email at vicandkristie@vicandkristie.com.

 6. If you would like to donate more than the profit from the shirt, that is always welcome :-) and will go to St. Jude.

This is a pre-order only, (I will buy literally only a handful extras to cover any mistakes), so the shirts will be ready the first full week of October and shipped at the end of that week. I know it is tempting when I see so many of you, but please do not email me, text me or FB me your order, it is so difficult to keep up with so many coming in different ways and I want to keep mistakes minimal. Thank you so much for your prayers for Eli, and for showing your Eli support and your support for Childhood Cancer Awareness! You are all so good to support all of our efforts for St. Jude, whether it be donating money, time, or effort. We are not a big group, but your impact is great. Our running team is very close to our fundraising goal, so thank you for helping support the fight against Childhood Cancer.
