This is a First Holiday Moment sent in from Dayna White

Jayden’s First Christmas without Cancer.
Jayden was diagnosed with a brain tumor on 9/27/2010 when she was sixteen months old. She had had cancer since before she was born, we just didn’t know until she got sick. Christmas 2010 was very special. It was her first Christmas cancer free and her first Christmas after brain surgery and radiation. Jayden is a survivor and we are blessed to have her here with us. Here are some pictures of her last two days of radiation. Her nurses were all so wonderful and got her Christmas presents and a card. Jayden was their youngest radiation patient to date. Also here is a picture of Jayden with her baby sister in front of the Christmas tree.

    This was touching. My brother and I are a year apart and when he was around Jayden’s age was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Everyone told my parents to take him home and love him. He wasn’t supposed to make it but God saw differently. He’s 27 now. He’s our miracle.
    Jayden is so precious. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful memory. Praying for many more beautiful memories to be made for you, Jayden and your loved ones!
