Caring Bridge Jolie's story and updates on her progress!

Link to my FB page update on Jolie's progress

We love you all thank you for your prayers!

All prizes have been shipped!

My 6 year old niece Jolie was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in October. She will be in and out of the hospital for a 54 week regiment of chemo radiation and eventually surgety. At week 7 check up there has been a 70% reduction in the size of the tumor. While this is great news, it will still be a long road. Please keep the prayers coming!

Jolie in the hospital October 28th--------Brandy and Jolie playing outside November 3rd

This will be a long battle and to support My family I am holding a fund raiser. A chance for people to win some great prizes and help my sister Brandy Kneip and her family to focus on Jolie instead of bills.
