Our Angel

Kellan Michael FordMarch 11, 2016 – June 11, 2021 Kellan went home to God early this morning peacefully in his sleep. It is hard to say goodbye, although just for now. Seeing him truly peaceful just before he passed brought me comfort. He hung on just a little longer to allow Parker to come to […]

Miracles in May

May was filled with love and many mini miracles. May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month – we saw first hand how horrible this disease can be. We spent 19 days in the hospital and several of those days in the ICU. Kellan had palliative radiation, infusions to help stop the cancer in his marrow from […]

A new path

Kellan Update, April 2021: This has been a tough one to process and to write…Last week Kellan was admitted to the hospital, for a week. He was due for check-in scans to check progress, but we did them scans early since we were admitted. Many of you have heard Kellan has had unbearable knee and […]

Signs of progress + setbacks

Kellan Update: December was a blur. Kellan’s MRI showed his spinal tumors are shrinking!! Since he was experiencing quite a bit of bone pain they did a bone biopsy too. A week later we got the news the cancer spread to his bone marrow, small amounts but nonetheless- not what we wanted to hear. Round […]

Radiation Journey

Kellan, our mighty warrior, rings the gong to signify the end of his 30 radiation treatments! (Includes end of treatment freak out… we are good now!) Please continue to pray for Kellan… over the next few weeks the radiation does its job of finding and killing every last tumor and cancer cell in his brain […]

It’s cancer. Really?

Kellan is home and so happy to be with his big brother, Parker. Thank you to our family and friends that pitched in to give both Kellan and Parker a mini room makeover – they are so excited! We also came home to a VERY clean/organized house, stocked fridge, flowers, dinners and notes from so […]

Post-op MRI results.

The MRI confirmed 100% of the main tumor is gone and the fluid redirect is working as it should. The news we were looking for today! Kellan is still in PICU for recovery- so proceeding with caution. Tonight he asked for Spongebob and a snack, typical for Kellan! Next step is when the pathology results […]

Yes, it’s brain surgery.

Kellan’s surgery went as planned. They were able to remove the tumor and a MRI tomorrow will confirm. We now are waiting on the pathology results to start his treatment plan. I am so proud of this brave little warrior. His journey isn’t going to be easy and we would be so grateful if you […]
