Moving Into Maintenance!

It's official...Elena began the maintenance phase of her treatment today!
Praise the Lord!

It's hard to believe it is finally here! We are thankful to have the long, difficult part of Elena's treatment behind us and look forward to each new day that gets us closer to her final day of treatment.

Thank you for your prayers, love, and encouragement.

We will be at Gwinnett County's Relay for Life event tomorrow night. Hope to see some of you there. It will be the end of a long, busy, but fun week at our house.

While we are rejoicing tonight, cancer is cruel. Another child needs your prayers. After two years cancer free, Hannah has recently been diagnosed with a relapse of ALL. After suffering a stroke last night, she is currently in ICU with a blood clot on the brain and a brain bleed. Please join us in prayer for Hannah and her family.

In Him,
The Tates

"The Lord your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."
