Warning

We are very sad to report that there is a young man going door to door in the Las Vegas area representing himself as part of Kassidy's Army. We would NEVER go door to door asking for donations, please call the police or email us at kassidysarmy@live.com. See official fundraisers below!

June 30, 2011

A day at the NASA Space Center to take Kass mind off everything.
We have been anxiously waiting to see if Kass was going to be accepted into the clinical trial program at the Burzynski Clinic by the FDA.  We were nervous because there was a possibility she was not going to be accepted because she had not failed radiation or chemo treatments first.  Well, today while we were out at the NASA Space Center spending a little quality time together we got a call saying that she was accepted.  Wohoo! We were so excited! Prayers were heard!
Early tomorrow morning she will have a small surgery to put in her port/catherer in her chest and 4 sets of MRIs.  If we are done by 3pm, then the doctor would like to start her treatment immediately after at the clinic. They will infuse her first dose.
We've never been so happy in our lives since the day we laid eyes on our beautiful daughter when she was born. Tomorrow will be day ONE of a long battle that we will fight together and our start of hope.

"There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something tomorrow."

PS. Want to deeply thank Ron Kantowski and Jason Bean for doing an amazing job telling Kassidy's story.  Here is the link for those who haven't seen the article.  It made front page of the Las Vegas Review Journal:

I'm praying for you all!

These verses have been a wonderful support for me during some difficult times in my life.

But now this is what the Lord says ~
he who created you, O Jacob,
he who formed you, O Israel:
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name;
you are mine.
When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze. Isaiah 43:1-2
Love and prayers ~ Char

Great news Massiel!!!! I just know everything will work out for Kassidy.
I (for one who has had personal experience with chemo)think you have made the best choice.
