The Adventures of a Cancer Mom! Have you ever been so scared that you sucked in your breath and held it, well I feel as if I am still holding that first breath.
Christian and I (Sarah) are the parents of a 4 yr. old, beautiful, sweet boy named Sven who was diagnosed with Leukemia on 4.19.09. Immediately we started chemotherepy treatment for Sven with the Pediatric Oncology Center @ Stony Brook University Hospital on Long Island, NY. I will outline some highs and lows and most of all type some frustrations away :-)

Have to do paperwork today and I am thinking about a letter that I received from the hospital that treats Sven for his Leukemia. The letter stated that we owed $19,000.00 for medical treatment, what was so great was that at the top of the letter it said: THIS IS NOT A BILL. Ok then what is it A WARNING. Was that statement supposed to make us feel better...like no biggee we will send the bill next week. LOL.
I am Sven's Mom Sarah! I am trying to get through these days, and months and years (almost 1) of my son's cancer diagnosis. Most days are still sad but I try and keep my chin up because I take keeping this family healthy and happy seriously. My husband is my rock and Sven is my light. I still cry daily though now when I feel it coming I hide in the bathroom with the door locked I think Sven worries for me too much, his heart is soooo big!
