Interview with the American Red Cross

Despite some off and on headaches and problems with blurred vision and sore eyes that come and go, Christi really does feel very well and is happy and full of energy. (Shayne and I are quite concerned and worried, but that goes without question, I guess.)

Today, during her recess break, she was interviewed at our school in my classroom by a women from the American Red Cross. Christi is going to be featured in an upcoming issue of "The Gift" which is mailed to 50,000 blood donors. Recipient of the Red Cross's highest honor - the Clara Barton Award, for volunteerism Christi happily chatted with the reporter.

"I wish my cancer would go away and I wish I had a Siamese cat." She also chatted about her best friends Kaylyn and Theresa and listed many favorite subjects when asked: math, science and social studies. This weekend she will write out her valentines since we don't know if she'll be back home for Valentine's day or not.
