The Shannon Family -- We are Done with Radiation

Hello All. We have completed our CNS therapy phase for Nick. He did and even brought home his radiation mask. He knows he will still have to go to clinic and receive more chemo... the shots will be the surprise to him. As Greg said, we have been trying to say thanks to the many people supporting us and if we can't write to you here, we hope you all know how much we appreciate the support. I have to give some big hugs and thanks to Meaghan and Randi at Stop & Shop. Together they held a raffle (for Pats tickets) in their office to benefit Nick. Without even knowing Nick, they rounded up the tickets from Paul at Snyder's (thank you to) and posted signs for everyone to contribute. 2 sets of tickets were given away and as a surprise Snyder's gave mom and dad 2 tickets to join the winners. The philanthropic spirit has truly brought the joy of giving a real meaning.
Of course, how can I end this without saying thanks to the SCJ crew again. Sandy and I made some more meals last weekend and I can't wait to share them with family who helps out babysitting our 3 boys. As we get ready for Christmas, we hope everyone will enjoy the Holiday and the time they can spend with their family.
