Meet Elise!

Carson has a very special little girl in his kindergarten class.  
Her name is Elise, and she is a sweetheart!  

Elise is also a twin with her brother, Evan.  So, of course, we're extra partial to her!  
She has a very special story that I'd love to share with you!

Meet Elise Morgan, daughter of Brian and Wendy, twin sister to Evan, and big sister to Lauren. Elise was diagnosed with a malignant Medullary Brainstem Tumor on March 29, 2010.  

After an initial prognosis of just 6-18 months, Elise underwent 6 weeks of Radiation Therapy at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

Despite the odds, Elise's tumor shrunk nearly 25% and has shown no signs of growth for over one year!  Elise is currently symptom-free and is enjoying life as a typical kindergartener!

On Saturday, November 19, along with family, friends, and classmates, we want to honor Elise at the St. Jude Give Thanks. Walk.  St. Jude's is such an amazing children's hospital!

You can play a special part in this and support Elise's team, PRINCESS CUPCAKE!  Simply click on the link for more information!

You can also follow Elise's CaringBridge page to follow her story and leave their family some encouragement! 

We're praying that God would continue to work a miracle in Elise!
