    The number 10,270 hit me like a 2 x 4 in the stomach.  My 12 year old daughter was diagnosed in February of this year with osteosarcoma.  We now live in the world of pediatric cancer.  I see children as young as 2 months old being treated for cancer.  Words cannot describe the emotions I see and experience.  Never have we clung to Jesus as we do right now.  We are learning to walk daily trusting in God's sovereign plan.  She finished her last round of chemo last week.  Now we enter the life of scans every three months, pushing to the 5 year mark.
