On September 5th 2014 she was told that she had relapsed. She was able to achieve a second remission and had a bone marrow transplant on Oct 17th 2014.

Team Faye

Nick checking in. I wanted to do a quick post to personally thank everyone for their help, support, and most of all prayers. All have played a crucial part in many miracles for our family. We can't describe the relief we felt when we got the results of the bone marrow biopsy on Monday. The chemo is working. While there is a long journey ahead with so much uncertainty, right now we feel grateful and blessed to have so many wonderful family members, friends, and people we have never met lifting us up with their kind words, faith, and prayers. I hope you will keep sending them our way to keep Faye on her path to recovery. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Here are a few pictures of Team Faye in action showing her our support during Faye's well deserved and well received time at home.

I asked Faye if she wanted to cut my hair so I could be bald like her. She quickly jumped at the offer. Mitchell, never wanting to miss an opportunity to participate, also humored her.

We let mommy help by finishing up what Faye started with the hair cuts. One of these things is not like the others!

One of these things is not like the others, Nick you are hillarious. Come on Stace hop on board, I think it would suit you really well!

Love the new look little family, and mostly love the wonderful news that Chemo is working. Sorry Stace I have had the flu and been missing from the computer the last couple days. I missed your last post, that is a wonderful thing to hear and an answer to many prayers.

Awesome! I love how Mitchell is gripping the sides of his chair. He looks so scared to have Faye in charge of the buzzers. Team Faye is pretty much the coolest team of all time.

Love it!! Nick's had that hair cut before. I think it looks good on all three boys, but I'm not sure if I vote for Stace to do it or not. I was so excited to see her doing the funny face picture & maybe that's enough craziness out of this refined lady! I'm sure she would look just as gorgeous with Faye's rocker haircut, though!

Love the haircuts! Faye is quite the hairdresser. Vidal Sassoon, watch out.
It is so absolutely wonderful that the chemo is working. Just think, very soon it will be June 11, and Faye will be ONE-THIRD through her treatments. Yippee!
