Day + 6

As we close the blinds on our little window to the outside world here in Rm #3206 on another positive day and settle in for the night, we reflect on all of the things we have to be thankful for:

-  for a loving God who knows us better than we know ourselves
-  for our families who love us no matter what
-  for friends near and far who have stuck by our side
-  for those who may not know us but know of us and pray
-  for doctors, nurses and medical staff that truly care for Elena
-  for each other

For all of these things and more, we know that we are blessed and are thankful!

We are also thankful to our new friends at 11Alive for caring enough about our family to get involved and share our story with so many.  The piece will air tomorrow, Aug. 1st, on either the 5:00 or 6:00 evening news.  For those who are not local, the piece will be available at 11Alive.com some time later tomorrow night.

In Him,
The Tates

"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever."   Psalm 107:1


  1. Now I have another reason to watch 11Alive tomorrow...to see a real CHAMPION on TV!! So proud of you for how you are continuing to fight the good fight & to kick cancer to the curb one day at a time.

    I'm thrilled to hear that today was a good day & that prayers are being answered. God is good!

    "Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you." 2 Thessalonians 3:16

    You are loved!

  2. Can't wait to see you on the news!!! Love, The Slater's

  3. The Letts will be glued to the TV tonight to watch the news to see someone who is more amazing than any Olympic athlete. Our pick is you, Elena!!! Our prayer is that your family will feel the love and support that so many have for you guys! We join you in lifting up our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who is the source of all strength, love and healing, and in whom we can place all our trust! We love you! We are so proud of your strength and "spunkiness"! That's the Elena we all know and love!

    The Lett family
