Xena has been on quite a journey fighting her Cancer. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Thank God she had a great Doctor who carefully operated on her from 8a.m.-5p.m.. She was diagnosed with the tumor January 2016. Since then Xena has been on quite a journey with her chemo and surgeries. She is now 19 months old and spent almost half her life fighting to stay alive. Xena has 2 older siblings who love her very much. They have been a part of every detail of Xena's Journey. Xena's 3 year old brother understands a lot of the medical terms and asks us about her treatment. Chemo ended last Wednesday. Please check out our Facebook page to see the parade Texas Children's Hospital had for Xena. When the children finish their chemo, they have them ring a bell. As of right now we will have 3 Dr. appt's a week at Texas Children's Hospital. This will involve Xena's lab work, multiple blood transfusions and platelets. They will also begin scheduling tests to make sure Xena is cancer free. This will be a long process for Xena. The next step is therapy. getting Xena to learn how to talk, walk and hopefully put some weight back on. Xena's family lives 2 hours away from Texas Children's Hospital. Xena's mother was able to take several months off work to be able to stay in the hospital with her baby. Xena's father had to cut his work to part time hours to care for Xena's siblings. Xena's parents are so grateful for the awesome Dr's they have. Due to the financial burden, mostly for travel expenses and co-pay, Xena's parents have been in positive spirits and are grateful for all the financial support, prayers and encouragement. My name is Sandra Ganis. My website is www.SandraGanis.com- I flew from California to Houston to visit with Xena and her mom at Texas Children's Hospital. Words cannot explain how my heart was feeling. This crowd rise page goes directly to the family's bank account. Xena's mother will be posting updates and photos. I ask that you please donate as much as you can. The wonderful thing is that Xena's parents never asked for anything. It's been family, friends and their community that chose to help them. Please feel free to visit Xena's Journey at www.facebook.com/Xena2016 for photos and updates. I ask that you please donate as much as you can. If you can get a bunch of people to donate $5.00 that would help. I believe in helping others- we never know when a loved one or ourselves would need help. Like Jesus said- 'when you helped a stranger in time of need it was like helping me.' Thank you in advance. We wish you all great health, peace and happiness- Xena's Journey
