Sorry Everyone!! I’ve been a little behind lately. Sawyer completed his 5th cycle of chemo the week of the 14th and he was amazing! He did not get sick and had no significant reaction to the medication (just fatigue and crabbiness, but I can’t really blame him). A big thank you to Grandma and Baba Williams and Aunt Lisa who came up to help and spend time with Calvin while we were at the hospital. Now we will be preparing for surgery which is tentatively scheduled for June 13th. We will keep all of you posted as we get closer to that
Team Super Sawyer participated in the Lurie Children’s Move for the Kids 5K on May 20th. Thank you so much to all of you who came from near and far to support Sawyer and all of the kids who are treated at this wonderful institution. Sawyer was even able to participate in the kids dash he was so proud of himself! In typical Chicago fashion the weather did not want to cooperate it was cold and began raining right before the race started but many of you stuck with it and ran or walked. We are so thankful to all of you who supported Team Super Sawyer we were able to raise over $3,000 for the hospital!! Please check out the photo page for some great pictures.
Thank you all for your support. Please continue to keep Sawyer in your prayers and intentions. It means so much to us. Thank you again for reading! Until next time!!
Jen, Jeremy, Sawyer and Calvin

We have an update on Sawyer. This cycle has been a little harder on him than the others, each cycle he is given a combination of various drugs. One of the drugs he had received this treatment he also had during his first and second cycles, but those were just ½ hour doses and this past cycle was two 6-hour doses. Luckily, he has been feeling well but it completely wiped out his counts and he had to go into the hospital twice, once because he spiked a fever and had low blood pressures and the second for transfusions. But he got through it like a champ. He has been able to go to school this week and has been having lots of fun playing with his friends. He is on track to start his next cycle of chemotherapy on Monday. After this cycle he will be having his surgery. We still do not know when that will be, but we will post when we find out.
We want to send a big thank you to everyone who has donated to or is participating in the Move for the Kids 5K!! So far you have helped Team Super Sawyer raise over $2700 for Lurie Children’s Hospital!! This is amazing we cannot thank you enough!!
Many of you have been asking about fundraising for Sawyer and our family. Aunt Bridgett had created a Go Fund Me page. You can access the page through this link: Help Sawyer Kick Cancer’s Butt or we have also added a link on the Donate page. In addition to the Go Fund Me our wonderful neighbors The Blevins’ family have offered to turn their annual summer party into a fundraiser for Sawyer. Show Up for Super Sawyer will be held on June 9th from 3-7pm, they will be preparing New Orleans style food and beverages as well as some fun activities for the kids. We have sent out evites but if you have not received one and wish to attend please email Jen at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will send and invitation out to you. It should be a great time we look forward to seeing you all there!!
As always please keep Sawyer and our family in your prayers and intentions. Thank you for continued support. Until next time.
