My eldest child has a brain tumor.

Those were the first words of my second-ever blog post back in 2006. I'd started the blog as a place to store ideas and random musings, but it soon became The Cancer Blog, read by friends and family and very many strangers around the globe.

Our daughter lost her battle with brain cancer, and in time the blog seemed too intimate to keep online. But I wanted a way to share Sadie's story with others seeking the kind of personal, blow-by-blow information I had found so useful while we were in the thick of things. So I distilled the essence of Sadie's journey to create this website. I hope it helps you feel a little less alone during a very difficult time.
