My Story

Please see my (July 4th) first journal entry to support a mothers plea/ prayer for God to heal our Ellie.

Our Ellie was perfectly happy, energetic, tanned and appeared healthy... not a symptom but a dull leg ache for the last few months. What was dismissed for growing pains was the ugly tumor growing silently in her lower left pelvic area...pressing on the leg nerves. From there cancer metastasized into her lungs. 

Our innocent, kind and sweet Ellie (a twin), at six years old has are rare pediatric stage 4 (Rhabdomyosarcoma) cancer in her trunk and lungs. I found a hard lump in her pelvis area on the evening of July 2, 2008 while powdering her before bedtime. Ellie's twin sister is Grace, they are best of friends and rarely leave each others side. Our family asks for your prayers for God to heal Ellie. We do need a miracle. Ellie began her cancer treatment on Saturday, July 5th. She had completed 30 straight days of radiation to her lungs and abdomen by end of October 2008.  Ellie completed a total of 42 rounds of Chemo through May 2009. 

Ellie was an inspiration to many and kicked cancers butt - Remission in June 2009.

Sadly, less than 3 months later, Our Ellie is back where we began with tumors in her lungs and the same tumor in her abdomen growing again.

Ellie Shoal Potvin lost her battle on June 23rd, 2010. She is dearly loved and missed.
