Day 365 - What did you do this past year?

So you may be wondering where the journey has been going since June.  For those of you just tuning in we are one year in to a 2+ year treatment plan to #BeatLeukemia.

As this post is being written, I recall where we were a year ago.  I also reflect on the 364 days that followed.  As you know Anna's Journey has been filled with ups and downs to say the least.

I think of a then 8 year old who sat bravely in the hospital on Halloween and the following day when under anethesia for a bone marrow test.  Who then broke down screaming and crying in our arms when she heard that she had Leukemia.  Once past the tears she prepared for the battle of her life and handled it like I never could.

This horrific moment one year ago however brought us love and compassion in ways we never could have imagined.  From our families and friends to the overwhelming support of a community. You all followed and supported us in ways we could never express enough gratitude for.

So what's happened since June?
