PS I ADORE YOU: FAYE’S STORY

I am honored to be the PS I Adore You sponsor for the month of November!  PS I Adore You started with three passionate moms who were committed to bringing awareness to childhood cancer.  By offering fresh, on-trend items they’ve created a platform to shine a light on courageous children battling their disease. Your purchases fund the fight, and this month, we are focusing on miss Faye.  Here is here story, written by her mama:

Three and a half years ago we were expecting our third baby and Faye, then three, often complained of leg pain.  Doctors chalked it up to growing pains, but Faye’s pain increased, she often had fevers, and eventually she didn’t want to leave bed. The only comfort she could find is if we were rubbing her knees 24/7.  Several days after her brother Nixon was born, we took Faye back to the doctor where they did x-rays and blood tests.  Hours later we were in an ambulance heading to Texas Children’s Hospital where Faye would stay for the next five months to receive chemotherapy for Acute Myeloid Leukemia, a rare type of leukemia that is difficult to treat.  The doctors told us a bone marrow transplant was an option, but Faye responded so well to chemo that we (doctors included) thought it would be best to proceed without a transplant, despite her little brother Nixon being a match.
Faye spent the next three years in remission and enjoyed all the things normal little girls enjoy–going to school, playing softball, and spending time with her brothers.  She has taken the name “Mini Mommy” upon herself.  She is incredibly helpful with another new, now one year old little brother.  When she began complaining of leg pain again we were scared to death, but her blood work looked great and we told ourselves her prior chemo could have long range effects on her body.  As the leg pain continued though, we wanted definite answers and asked for an MRI, which showed abnormalities in her bone marrow.  After a bone marrow biopsy, our worst fears were confirmed.  Faye’s cancer is back and this time a bone marrow transplant is the only option.
Faye spent the month of September in the oncology ward of Texas Children’s Hospital receiving chemotherapyto bring a second remission, which has been achieved.  Currently Faye is on the bone marrow floor where shereceived additional chemo to kill her bone marrow. She has received her transplant using Nixon as a sibling match. Now it is a waiting game to see if her body accepts the cells from Nixon.
Faye is as brave as a little girl can be as she goes through what no little girl should have to and has always prayed for her brother Nixon that “he will be OK when they do the ‘bow and arrow’” (Faye’s way of saying bone marrow).  We are so grateful to our Heavenly Father and for the heavenly and earthly angels who are helping Faye and our family through this fight.

As a mom, I can’t imagine walking through this with one of my own children.  To see your child suffer in any way,  especially from a life threatening disease like cancer, is one of the worst things imaginable as a parent.  And on top of the emotional toll it takes on a family, there is also a huge financial one.  Fortunately, this is one part that we CAN help with.  10% from every purchase made on PS I Adore You this month will go straight to Faye and her fight.
I’ve styled some of my favorite items that will be available this month below!  Please join in helping this sweet family and receive something fabulous in return!
