Monster Mash Success!

Our 1st annual Monster Mash was a real spooktacular time! Cardinal Wuerl gave the blessing, Dr. Raabe from Johns Hopkins spoke about low grade gliomas and the challenges in treating them, Congresswoman Eschoo spoke and Congressman Crowley auctioned of the top pumpkins. Clay recited his "Someday" poem, and Fox News picked up the story, which ran on the 10:00 news that night. Clay was thrilled when kids at school the next day said he was a "movie star."  We raised close to $300,000 which will fund 3 research projects next year.  If you want to see photos and read more about the event or see the news clipping, it is all up on
Thanks to so many people who donated money or services! We are so touched by such widespread support.

Clay's last MRI was stable and he is feeling good.  He is learning the clarinet at school, and continues with riding and tae kwan do.  I'm changing his profile picture to one taken at the stable with his instructor, Brooke.  I love that photo!  We are settling in with our new puppy, Hazel, who is now 12 weeks old.  She loves soccer.
