Hi everypawdy! Here are pictures of my pawsome pawty. I am nine years old now. Almost everyone came including my four legged friends. I even got special icecream that mom made from yogurt, pumpkin and bananas. I'm not quite sure why my pawrents throw these huge bashes on certain days of the year but mom says it's because I'm kicking cancer in its tail. I'm not an aggressive tripawd but it sure sounds good. She also says we need to celebrate because I didn't care what the doctor said about my prognosis and to screw bone cancer. I'm not a carpenter but it sounds like I'm strong and a fighter. They also say I'm a warrior and helping people learn that you can love life on three legs and tripawds are amazing. I love my pawrents and even my brufer who is annoying sometimes. I hope everyone comes again next year!

What a party-I can't show Lily the pics, she'll want to know why her parties are so low key:) Cadence is such an inspiration to us-Lily is 23 monthsbig-grin

Joan and Lily

Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.
