An Update from Jacksonville!

17 Proton Beam Radiation sessions done only 11 to go! Dr. Danny Indelicato says he is thrilled with Taylor and how he is doing with the radiation. The UF Proton Institute is truly amazing and is helping so many people! 
The Jacksonville Ronald McDonald House has been so wonderful to us. Most nights the 30 room house is full. Many are like us traveling to Jacksonville to receive Proton therapy. There are quite a few families from Europe. The house is lucky...volunteers and businesses provide dinner each night. There is a playroom, playground, laundry room and community kitchen that is open 24hrs a day.  

Spencer, Sammy and Brad were here this weekend to visit! Spencer and Sammy made friends with a very special little boy named Bradlee. He is 3-1/2 and has a brain tumor, and he's here getting the Proton Radiation too. He wore out Spencer and Sammy with tricycle races, basketball and sliding down the playground slide!! (You can keep up with Bradlee and his story on Facebook at "Fighting for Bradlee".

We took the boys to Dave and Busters to watch the Gator Game on Saturday night. Most of the tables were a little too tall for Taylor!! I guess we could have just shoveled the food right in his mouth! 

The Jacksonville Zoo was a MUST for Sammy. If you did not already know....Sammy wants to "own his own Zoo someday". The Zoo was really fun.  Taylor decided to take Ya-Ya and Pop-Pop for the UF Proton Center tour and lunch...he is not much of a Zoo guy.

Hope everybody has a great weekend!
