THANK YOU everyone for your prayers and generous support. Courtney is now being treated by her oncologist in Greenville. Recently she was hospitalized for a few days in Greenville to receive IV fluids and medications. Now she continues regular visits to the clinic and has also begun physical therapy. We continue to hope for weight gain.
