Day 31: Thank You

We want to thank you all for being on this journey with us. Thank you for reading our story, sharing our story, raising awareness, caring about our daughter, and just being you. We have lived life moment to moment at times and in those hard times, it’s been your words of encouragement that get us through. Your prayers lift us up to The One who can bring comfort and healing. By allowing our daughter to touch your heart, you are making cancer the loser in this game.

Our brain tumor journey started 600 days ago today, when we took our daughter into the hospital for a scan to rule things out and instead our lives were changed forever. Some of you have been with us for the full 600 days and some of you have just joined us recently. The month of May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month and we have tried to use our posts this month to tell our story and to show you what we have experienced and what we continue to experience. In making the daily posts, I have been blown away by all of the likes, comments, and shares that the posts have received. Tillery’s story is doing exactly what this month is set aside for…raising awareness.

We'd like to invite you all to visit TilleryisLoved.com, the new blog site for Tillery’s medical updates. I’ve put all of May’s daily posts there if you would like to revisit any of them and will be using this page for updates moving forward. Her Caring Bridge page will remain open but all that will be posted there will be links to TilleryisLoved.com when a new update is shared. Please feel free to share the website as well as this Facebook page and continue to help us raise awareness.

We are thankful for Tillery’s long term prognosis and the continued improvements we see in her daily. Tillery is a survivor. We share her story for all of those who haven’t survived, for all of those with a terminal diagnosis, for all who are fighting to stay in the game, and for the 9 children who are diagnosed every day with a brain tumor. We want to raise awareness and research funding. Most importantly, we want people to always see that there is hope. Jesus Christ gives us that hope. If you struggle to find hope or do not know Christ and are seeking, please reach out to us and allow us the blessing of helping you find hope in Him.

You are all loved, just as Tillery is Loved.

Thank you,

The Phillips Family
