Two Worlds

Dad will stay with Shayla so we can pretend she has a normal childhood.

Mom will comfort Christi at CHOP while we desparately try to save her life.

We'll let the pictures say the rest.

Sweet Christi:

We haven't met, but I went to banking school with your dad in Madison. I'm so happy you were able to pass out your valentines today, although I'm sure it would have been more fun if you had felt better. I pray that the wonderful doctors and nurses at CHOP will be able to get your pain under control for you so you can enjoy reading all the valentines you received from your classmates. You are a "real trooper" and a good example (especially for us adults) on how to be brave when you don't feel good. I really, really like your pink is definitely your color!

Shayne & Angela:
My prayers for comfort for Christi and strength to you and your entire family are ongoing. You are ever present in my thoughts.
God's blessings and warm hugs to you both........

The pictures speak volumes. I'm going to say a rosary for Christi before I go to bed. Poor little pumpkin:( I pray that tomorrow is a better day for her.

Two very different worlds indeed. My heart continues to break into a million little pieces for your family. Oh sweet Christi, keep fighting with all you have. Shayla, you are so brave and I can't even imagine how hard this must be on you too. Shayne & Angela, words won't even do. I pray God gives you and Dr. Maris the guidance to decide what comes next.

Love & Prayers Always,

I've never left a comment before but i come check on Christi several times a day and have told my husband all about her and have her included in prayers everytime i'm in church as well.
I've cried so many tears reading your posts but this one,so short on words but so deep on sadness just breaks my heart,how i wish it were Christi in the pic with her sister,smiling and happy instead of in the picture below so tired and fragile.
My heart hurts for you,i know it's not much,not nearly enough but i send you every prayer i have and just want you to know if every sick child had parents like you their journey's would be so much gentler.
With love,

I have been following your story for only a few weeks now, but I spent the hours on your daughter's website the first night. Your story has touched me more than you will ever know. I think and pray for your daughter daily. My heart breaks for your family and I hope so badly for a miracle for Christi. You and your family have put things in perspective for me. I took life for granted, I truly did. Christi helped me do that. God Bless you and your family and I'm praying for a miracle.

I don't really know what to say. I just want this little princess to get better. I can't even begin to wrap my brain about what she's feeling....about what you're all feeling.I cannot imagine Christi losing this battle. She's gone on for so much longer and fought harder than anyone could have ever imagined or predicted she could. I want her to see her 9th birthday, and every birthday after that until she's 100. I want Christi to be the one that doctors and nurses talk about years from now to patients in the same situation. I want her to be the one who gets a miracle. I think she deserves one. Lord knows there are enough people out their storming the Heavens asking for one. All I can say now is that you guys have my full love and support and all my prayers. You have my heart, as it is with you always.If only love were enough to make her well.....but always remember
"..when God wants to do something truly magnificent, He starts with the impossible."

My heart just breaks for all of you. I pray that Christi's awful disease can be knocked down by her chemo, and that all these symptoms are not the signs of a losing battle - not that Christi will ever lose this battle, either way. She is a winner, a champion, and the bravest little girl in the world. She does not deserve what she's going through. She has united half a planet with love and hope. I don't think many of the world's so-called 'leaders' can do that. All my love to Christi, and to sweet, beautiful Shayla...and strength,courage and hope to Angela and Shayne. You two are an inspiration - you have raised two adorable, intelligent and utterly beautiful little girls (who are there for each other, even when hamsters get in the way!). God bless you all. And God guide and bless your fight.

i dont even remember how i first found Christi's site -- but i have been following your journey since soon after the creation of the website. i have spent 5 years working with kids with cancer, and have grown to love them all as if they are my own. i feel the same for christi as well, even having never met her physically. she has a special place in my heart and i thank you for allowing us "strangers" to be a part of your daily life. i just wanted to stop by and tell her happy valentines day and that i love her and pray for her often!

I'm so sorry for what you're going through right now; I so hope that the doctors can get Christi feeling comfortable again. My prayers are with your family nightly, for Christi to be comfortable and able to enjoy life as an eight-year old little girl should, for Shayla, so that she,too, can enjoy life as a new seven year old, and for both of you, for renewed strength and courage when you need it the most. I wish that prayers could make your lives all return to "normal" again. I do hope that tomorrow is a better day for Christi.

Worried here and praying that God will spare precious Christi and give us more time in this fight. I'm so sorry she's hurting. Love you.

I am so glad that Christi was able to pass out her Valentines - from reading your site we all know how important her friends and school is to her - sending you hugs from Texas and praying harder than ever for your and your family.
