    Go, Lily! Adding my prayers and support for you. Hang tough, girl, and whip that cancer’s, uh – since you’re only six, we’ll say “butt.” :)

  2. Jen Singer

    Thanks everyone. Please keep the well wishes going. As you know, cancer treatments are a marathon, not a sprint, and those of us still in the race need support the entire course.

    And Lily, I love you back, sweetheart.

    Lily, you are precious and I’m praying to God to help you through this. He will take care of you. You are in good hands, and I’m so glad that Jen wrote about you, so we can all know you, and hear your story. We are loving you in Minnesota, beautiful girl. God bless your family too, and how wonderful you are to support others during this race. God bless you.

    Lily, I finished chemo 3 years ago. My best friend’s son had leukemia and needed a bone marrow transplant from his sister. My next door neighbor finished chemo for leukemia 3 years ago. I know a lot of tough people who have had cancer and I can tell that you are one of them. Keep smiling, darling, and look forward to the day when this will be behind you… know how much all of us are cheering you on.

  9. Gina Lee (Lily's Aunt)

    I am Lily’s aunt and can’t express how heart warming it is to read all these comments. It is unfortunate that we live in Texas so far away from her and her parents. She is a very smart and strong little girl that I am so very proud of! My daughter Makenzie adores her little cousin and wishes she could be there with her every day. We went to visit this past Christmas and was so shocked at how grown up she has become mainly from what all she has had to endure. No child should have to experience this and breaks my heart to know all she has had to give up during this time. The fact that she is so happy and sweet day after day is such an inspiration that everyone should take a lesson from. Great job baby girl we are so proud of you and miss you dearly! Aunt Gina:)

    Lily was sitting right behind my table with her family. What an amazing little girl. Both of your stories plus millions of others are why I ran the 1/2 marathon. Yes I ran 13.1 miles but my journey ended after 3 hours. Keep on keeping on.

  11. Lynda

    I was one of those runner’s and was extremely touched by seeing Lily and Jen together on stage. The courage they both display is just amazing. I ran the race in honor of my Dad who will be 75 in June. He was diagnosed last year with T-cell large granular lymphoma. While his disease is chronic and at present not life threatening, I decided to run as my birthday present to him.

  12. Kristin

    Standing in awe of the smiles, the courage, and the pearls! Yay Lily! Yay to all cancer warriors!!!!
