Alanna Spends the Day with Her #1 Fan

Alanna got to spend some time on the ice yesterday with her #1 fan, Mike Dalhuisen of the Idaho Steelheads.  So beautiful to see all that Mike is doing to help bring some light and smiles to Alanna's life during her fight.  Here's yesterday's update from Alanna's mom:

"Alanna and Mike had their long anticipated ice skating date after today's appointment. They had the whole arena to themselves and I could hear her giggling the whole time all over the ice. She didn't really get the hang of skating, so he spent most of the time skating and carrying her. And at one point he pushed her all over in a chair! After all the fun she was asleep within 10 minutes on the way home"

Boise's Got Faith Packet Pick-Up Info

For all of you who have registered for this coming weekend's Boise's Got Faith event, packet pick-up will be held this Thursday (April 30th) at Chick-fil-A (8000 W. Franklin Rd.) in Boise from 5-8pm. Also, during this time from 5-8pm, Chick-fil-A will be donating 15% of all sales to Boise's Got Faith, from which 100% of these proceeds will go to the benefit of Alanna & Brynlee in their fight against cancer. So, grab your family, grab your friends and come to Chick-fil-A this Thursday from 5-8 to pick up your Boise's Got Faith packet and enjoy a tasty Chick-fil-A dinner. It's all about these two girls that we love and support!
If you're from the Canyon County area and are unable to make it to Chick-Fil-A on Thursday night, we will also be holding a packet pick-up in Nampa on Friday (May 1st) from 10am-6pm at Advocates for Inclusion, which is located at 958 Corporate Lane, off of Midland Blvd. in the Midland Business Center.
If neither of these locations, dates and times are convenient for you to pick up your packet for our May 3rd event, you still can pick up your packet at Julia Davis Park on May 3rd starting at 12pm, just prior to the event. However, we do encourage you to try to pick up your packets in advance at one of the two locations above, as it helps make things run a lot smoother the day of the event.
Haven't registered? There's still time! Go to BoisesGotFaith.org and register NOW!

Good News Continues with Brylee's Transplant

We are very happy to share this good news with you, as Brylee's transplant continues to proceed better than the physicians had expected. Please continue to keep this sweet girl and her family in your continual thoughts and prayers:
"Brylee continues to do well!!! Her rounding physician made a comment today stating "Go figure, the healthiest kiddo on the floor is the transplant kid." And we will take that...we continually say we like to be boring. We are starting to watch for engraftment signs showing that the new donor cells are replicating and thriving, but won't know anything definite for a couple more weeks.
Brylee's numbers are stabilizing meaning she has not needed any further transfusions and we can be hopeful she won't need anymore. She started back to school this week after Spring Break and otherwise finds other ways to entertain herself in her room each day. She is very creative in coaxing physicians to get their fingernails painted...thank you to Dr. Kram, her favorite physician for obliging. A friend stopped by to introduce himself and they were able to play in a modified way. As long as she doesn't leave her room and he doesn't come into her room (per isolation guidelines) they each could do their own legos sets with a little socialization. It was minimal talk and maximum building, but maybe the next encounter will generate a little more interaction."
