Todd Martini|||Durham, NC|Hi Everyone,

Hope you like the new guestbook. I had to move all of my sites over to a new server when my hosting company crashed, so I decided to simplify the guestbook.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to move your messages from the old guestbook into this guestbook, but I have kept a copy for ourselves.

Hope everything is going great. Take care.

-- Todd

David and his team The Pink Panthers finished the Tahoe Century for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in honor of Alex. Her
picture was on his back so I hope she enjoyed the ride. The national team of cyclists raised 6,000,000 for LLS (which was 60,000 per mile
of the century). The SF Bay Area Team raised enough money to fund two researchers for two years. There's a lot of hope in that money. Go
Alex, Go. We pray for all you daily. Corinne, David and Amelia.

I have been following your story for about a year now and have written several messages but not sure if I signed correctly and it was actually sent. I really like your new guest book! My heart and prayers goes out to you. I struggled with leukemia as a teenager and beat it. I just turned 40 in April. I am married and have three beautiful children. As I read your updates and the challenges you have faced along the way, I recall similar situations that I encountered. I can honestly say, looking back on the initial diagonis and a relapse, that my life experiences have proven to be a blessing which have molded me into the person I am today. God has used my tradegy and life experiences for good use. I have met and been able to share my story and truimphs to provide support and hope to many sick children with cancer (leukemia in particular). I have met so many amazing kids. Believe me, I did not feel this way as I was going through the illness but God has blessed me in so many ways and I am well aware of it now. This side of heaven we will never know the eternal impact our lives have and will have. I will continue to pray for all of you and hope that maybe someday I could actually meet you in person.

Its a shame Alex feels self conscious, its only normal but its a shame nonetheless. That beautiful little girl has been thru more than any other person in a lifetime.... and she should feel just as beautiful and strong. Praying for nothing but continued good news for your family!|9 June 2003|7yXene|monster1.gif|emoti1.gif|06:38:39 am| Marian Mitchem|||Durham, NC and Lake Elsinore, CA|Hi Alex and family!

I LOVE the new guestbook!! It was probably just me, but I tried to leave you a couple of messages on the old guestbook and could never get it to work.

Yes, sounds like maybe Todd needs a little more sleep...that is too funny about him leaving Nick in the car. I guess I better rethink having him keep an eye on Mikey or Madi for me any time soon.

Alex, it was sure fun having you come over to play with Mikey and Madi last week. You are such a sweetie and we hope you can come over again soon.

It's fun seeing the picture of Mikey and Madi with Alex on your web site. We'll have to go to Goodberry's again soon.

See you at the clinic if not sooner.

Gray||http://|San Francisco/now Houston|Dear Tood, Andrea, and Alex,

I met you at our cycling picnic the day after you got your first all-clear. What a joy it was to watch you run around the lot.

Over three years I cycled or trained for centuries in Tucson, Las Vegas, Chico, CA and also the Markleeville Death Ride in California with your name on my bike.

I have kept all three of you in my thoughts, these several years. I have recently moved from UCSF to the Houston med center; I work at UT Houston in case there is anything I can do from here for you.

Much love,

Well, I have to confess that I have been checking your website for sometime now and haven't signed the guestbook before now. Bad me :) I am so happy for you all, it's so nice to know that things are going well at Duke! Alex is too cute and I hope she feels better soon about her new cheeks, they'll go away soon! Just like her hair fell out and it will come back in, her cheeks will get puffy but will go down again. It's so hard on the kids, but they're troopers :) Well, back to work. Big hug to all of you! I still need to try that cream corn recipe you gave me back during the holidays :)
Talk to you soon

I loved your picture by the pond in Sarah P. Duke Gardens. We have so many fond memories (as I'm sure you do) there. Sarah asks if the goose is still there (she named him Sid Scream). You could always hear him no matter where you were on the pond. I remember all the little turtles who would poke their little heads up out of the water to try and grap a piece of bread before the ducks or fish gobbled them up. Know that we are thinking of you and that you are in our prayers every night. We can't wait to see you when you come down to visit your grandparents. Sarah so enjoyed your last visit. With all our love.

I am so happy to hear that Alex and Nick are both doing great. I will be praying that the flight on July 11th will happen. I too had a premie(male) around the same age that Nick was born, and he is now 12 1/2 yrs. old and strong as an ox, brighter than you can imagine and plays piano beautifully. He also never knew the word "premie" and makes his mom and dad extremely proud-can you tell?? I will pray that BOTH of your children continue to thrive and grow up to be great witnesses to God's work through them.
In Him,

God bless you all!|20 June 2003|3jeXim|blank.gif|emoti6.gif|06:13:41 am| Staci Talento|||Keizer, Oregon|Hello Dear Martini Family,

You don't know me, but I have been praying for Alex since November 2002. I heard about Alex on the June 2002 Expecting Club (iVillage) from Alex's Aunt, who asked for prayers on her behalf and posted her web site. I continue to pray for Alex (and Andrea, Todd and Nick) whenever I think of you all, which is often.

I had a difficult pregnancy and praying for Alex (and other children who are sick) really helped me not focus on my problems. Thank you for sharing Alex's story. You have touched so many lives!

I look forward to the day when the web site will be full of only happy news because Alex will be completely well. God is faithful, and he can heal any sickness!

I won't forget to keep praying for that happy day!

You don't know me, but I heard about your story probably over three years ago on the June '99 ParentsPlace playgroup board. I haven't missed an "Alex Update" since then. I have a six-year-old and a four-year-old, and the stories about you make me smile - you're such a special little girl. And your parents have got to be two of the most amazing individuals on this planet. I have a very good feeling things are going to go absolutely right for you from here. In the meantime, please know that there are so many people out here like me who are thinking about you, praying, and sending positive thoughts and prayers your way. :)|20 June 2003|NRiXaB|blank.gif|emoti2.gif|3:13:18 pm| Elizabeth Goodwin|||Richland, WA|

The 5th years book came out today and my momma got me it from walmart for 17.00! I can not wait to read it. It is over 800 pages long! Did you know someone gets killed off in the 5th year. I am going to read it and see who does I think Hagrid is going to be getting killed. Hagrid is so mean in the books and the movies. If you do not know how to read or do not read that well you should get the book and ask someone to read it to you. They could read it to you before you go to bed every night. Harry Potter is a wonderful series of books and they are very cool too! I love you very much. Have sweet dreams ok?

We are so glad to hear that things are going so well with everyone! You have all been so very busy, going out to eat, etc. You and your little brother are getting so big and so much cuter every day. It seems like you are both keeping your parents on their toes, just like a 5 year old super smart and wonderful girl and adorable little baby boy should. I have a question for you. Are your grandma and granda their? I went to visit them last night and no one answered. Both cars were in the driveway, but no one was home. I hope they are with you and having lots of fun. If they are with you, could you please tell them that the Moore family says "Hello' and that we miss them very, very much. Make sure you take good care of them Alex. They are so busy all the time and I worry about them. I know when they are with you it makes them feel so much better. Well, I have to get back to work now. Taylor, Allison and Warren all say "hello" and we all wish we could visit you back there and spend some time playing with you. Well, I hope to write again soon. Tell everyone "hello".

I will check in on you tomorrow. Love and hugs, Jessica|5 July 2003|r7ovAM|monster3.gif|emoti25.gif|6:51:03 pm| Jessica||||
I found a funny joke online and want to share it with you. Get ready to laugh ok?
Why did the cookie go to the doctor?
Because it felt crumby.

I have never done this before, but I was just looking over your website. You are such an amazing little gal. I am SO glad that I got to meet you. You are doing so well!!! I know it has been a rough ride, but you have done great and your beautiful smile makes me so happy. I am glad you get to go home to Washington, but I sure am going to miss you! I wish I never had to go to school so that I could just stay home all day and play with you and Nick. We could do SO many fun things - movies, crafts, maybe even bake some cookies!!! I hope you are sleeping soundly little angel. I will see you tomorrow! Love, Dora|5 July 2003|xjohUN|monster1.gif|emoti13.gif|10:56:37 pm| Nancy & Ed Aman||http://|Sanford, NC|

Congratulations on going home! May God grant you a safe trip with lots of fun along the way.

Yes you heard me right a great thing actually happened to me. Tonight after work my momma and I went to her boyfriend Ron's house and we took Ron and his daughter Mandy to the San Remo Casino for dinner. I had a dollar in my pocket and wanted to play it on the price is right machine. I know the whole time my mom was thinking I wasted the dollar. Well God spoke to me and he said to use that dollar so I did and I won one hundred and seventy nine dollars from that one dollar! Of course I cashed out then we went to eat. Also tomorrow my momma and I are going with Ron to california cause he knows an owner of a car dealership out there and he is going to work there and try to get my mom in so we might be moving in the next six months! My job will transfer me because there are Albertsons in California and plus the car dealership is by Disney Land! Doesn't that sound great. I am so happy right now I am doing flips in my heart and stomach. Thank you God for praying for me and for letting something good happen in my life!

I wanted to share something with you. Today a coworker told me you know Jessica God brings Angels into our lives from time to time and I think you may be my angel. Of course I asked him why? He said well you are disabled and have problems and walk with a cane but you still come to work daily push the carts in the hot heat and never ever complain. You bag the groceries very fast and never complain. He said I know you are hurting because I see by the middle of the day how tense your muscles are but you never complain and Jessica I am going through thinking weither I should have back surgery because three things in my back are broken the drs asked me twice before and I said no and I see you and how you always have a smile on your face and I think I might just get that surgery done.
Isn't it strange how we can touch peoples lives without even knowing it. One of my favorite songs is Survivor because it reminds me of my life and you have touched me in so many ways that I want to share this song with you.
SURVIVOR (Destiny's Child)

Now that you are out of my life,
I'm so much better
You thought that I'd be weak without ya,
but I'm stronger
You thought that I'd be broke without ya,
but I'm richer
You thought that I'd be sad without ya,
I laugh harder
You thought I wouldn't grow without ya,
now I'm wiser
You thought that I'd be helpless without ya,
but I'm smarter
You thought that I'd be stressed without ya,
but I'm chillin'
You thought I wouldn't sell without ya,
sold 9 million

I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what)
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what)
I'm a survivor (what), I'm gonna make it (what)
I'm a survivor (what), keep on survivin' (what)

Thought I couldn't breath without ya,
I'm inhalin'
You thought I couldn't see without ya,
perfect vision
You thought I couldn't last without ya,
but I'm lastin'
You thought that I would die without ya,
but I'm livin'
Thought that I would fail without ya,
but I'm on top
Thought that it would be over by now,
but it won't stop
Thought that I would self destruct,
but I'm still here
Even in my years to come,
I'm still gonna be here

Repeat Chorus

I'm wishin' you the best,
pray that you are blessed
Much success, no stress, and lots of happiness
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna blast you on the radio
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna lie on you or yo family, yo
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna hate on you in the magazine
(I'm better than that)
I'm not gonna compromise my christianity
(I'm better than that)
You know I'm not gonna diss you on the internet
('Cause my mama taught me better than that)

Repeat Chorus

After all of the darkness and sadness,
soon comes happiness
If I surround myself with positive things,
I'll gain posterity

I'm a survivor (what),
I'm not gonna give up (what)
I'm not gon' stop (what),
I'm gonna work harder (what)
I'm a survivor (what), I'm gonna make it (what)
I'm a survivor (what), keep on survivin' (what)

YOU ARE A SURVIVOR ALL OF MY LITTLE ANGEL KIDS ARE SURVIVORS. KEEP FIGHTING AND YOU WILL BEAT THIS DIEASE JUST LIKE SOMEDAY I WILL BEAT MY MEDICAL PROBLEMS AND BE WALKING WITHOUT MY CANE.

Hello sweetie. I made it through the first half of the ordeal this morning. Tommorow comes the second half of the ordeal which is the results. The dr ended up wanting to test my blood for my liver, kidneys, and thyroid. I have trust in God that everything will turn out fine. But I know there is something wrong because someone my age does not loose their teeth! It could be because of the high dosage of paxil I take though. So keep praying for me and I keep praying for you. I got to go say hi to my other kiddies then go to work.

Today as I read your last update and you shared about moving and so many neighbors (nurses, etc.) being put in your path, I can sit back and see the Lord at work in your lives. God is so good! In every need He has met you and in every circumstance He has been there with you. Thanks so much for allowing us to pray for you and for sharing so regularly on how God is moving in your lives.

Hi Alex how are you doing sweetie? I am doing good. I had a nice day at work and then went to wet n wild. Do you like to go swimming? Swimming is alot of fun. Wet n wild is a park with lots of water rides! Did you have anything good to eat today? I had chilli chesse fries at wet n wild and some doughnuts at work and some candy at wet n wild. I love you. Sleep tight! Love and hugs, Jessica|18 July 2003|HjYhi2|blank.gif|emoti12.gif|12:32:31 pm| Peggy & Jeremiah||http://||Andrea & Todd, Alex & Nick

Glad you made it home. I am leaving with my husband tomorrow. However, Jeremiah is not leaving until sometime next week. They haven't seemed to managed to get everything setup in Iowa. They have had all the info from us for more than 2 weeks. Oh well will give me time to get everything setup before Jeremiah gets home, and a few more days break. We all miss you.

Hi Alex I love you very much sweetie. You know the little girl Taylor you introduced me to well I fell in love with her and I feel like she is my little sister even though I never even met her. She is back in the hospital again and I am very scared because she did not do well in the hospital last time and they sent her home and now she is back! Please have your mommy and daddy visit her site. You guys have it allready but I will remind you of the address it is
I love you Alex and I hope you got to eat all of your jelly belly jelly beans.

The nurse said it would take 24 hours well I got them done on Wensday how come the results are not back yet??? I am getting very scared and am going to call there Monday and if the results are not back yet I am going to ask why not because the lady said it would only take 24 hours it is not right to play with a persons emotions like this! On a happier note my favorite dj from the local country radio station signed my guestbook which is really cool! I colored him in a picture of blues clues and sent it to him in email and he signed my guestbook! Isn't that cool a celebrity in my town signed my guestbook! I love you please pray those results will be positive and will be there monday morning. Love and Hugs,Jessica|19 July 2003|ZTasev|blank.gif|emoti9.gif|01:15:20 am| Jessica||||

You are finally home, Congrats!! That is absolutely terrific. We were sorry that we were not able to join you at your last get together with PBMTU families before your trek home, but Noah has kept us busy and quite exhausted, and still trying to give us those little scares every now and then. We are so pleased that your trip home went to well, and Alex is doing great, and that you are now to enjoy being together in your own home. So you live in Gig Harbor??? Is that right?? Greg's dad, Noah's grandpa, lives there...and we will be most likely moving to the Fort Lewis region in about 7 to 8 months. We are delighted to hear the wonderful report and we will continue to keep you all in our thoughts and prayers. God bless you guys.

Hi Everyone,

Alex was admitted to the PICU at Childrens Seattle on Monday afternoon as a precautionary measure, after spiking a fever and experiencing low blood pressure. Her fever broke almost immediately and her blood pressure is responding to the medication (dopamine) with which they are treating her. If she continues to progress, she should be out of the PICU in a day or two at most and be moved to a HemOnc room. At this point we do not know what is causing these problems, but it is most likely a blood infection or (less likely) GVHD. I'll try to post more tomorrow.

Hope everything is going great. Take care.

-- Todd

I was just thinking about you both on this gloomy Durham day. I sure do miss you both a lot. I wish I could come over and play. Alex, we could draw and play with stickers and watch movies. And Nick, well, I am sure you have a whole new barrage of tricks to show me. I hope, hope, hope that I get to see you while you are in California for Christmas. (I heard Santa is super generous in California!) I will be home from December 12th to January 4th - four weeks - YAY! (My Mommy is very excited too!)

Alex, you looked absolutely adorable at the pumpkin patch. The pictures of Nick were great too! (He is definitely a little GQ mini-Todd! ) What did you dress up as for Halloweeen? I tried to be Sunshine the Care Bear but my sewing wasn't very good so I couldn't wear my costume. I stayed home and handed out candy to lots of little creatures - a pumpkin, a cheerleader, cinderella, dorthy, some monsters, and a power ranger, among others! I miss you very much! Grandma assured me that I will get to see you over Christmas. Hip Hip Hooray! Love you guys!

That just made my night go so much better. I was very sad to hear about Noah as I followed his story for quite some time. Alex, I am very proud of you and your family for all of the awareness you have brought to childhood cancer. Our daughter Katia relapsed with AML in her CNS on August 26 this year and is now in for transplant. We are trying to find her a match as she has a BIG ethnic background. She will need to have surgery on her lungs this coming Monday to remove one of her lobes in her left lung and then hopefully be able to have transplant in the next few weeks and get new Bone Marrow. I know you know all about this. You are a beautiful girl with a beautiful family.

I know Alex is still a work in progress, but she is a tough cookie. I am so sorry to hear about her transplant friends that have lost their battles. My heart truly aches for their families. It is hard to believe that Nov. 26 will be 2 years since we lost Taylor. I just pray for a cure, so no more children will suffer and no more parents will mourn their babies.

Each day I to am so thankful that our only child,(well not a child he's 24,but our baby)Was diagnose with AML last July. He went into remission after the first treatment,but due to other complications was in the hospital for a total of three months from July -December.He has been in remission for 15 months.
I'm sooooo happy to see that you are doing well,but sad that others were not as fortunate. My thoughts go out to them also.

Regarding her CBC, Bella's CBC did that 7 months after transplant and that is when her kidneys started getting worse. At first we thought is was a relapse, but after testing, and an aspiration it proved that it was not cancer..Thank God!! Unfortunately, her kidneys are not working after all of the therapy, so they stopped producing a hormone that tells the marrow to make more RBC. So she is on epogen. Hopefully, everthing works out for you all. They say, even an infection can drop counts in BMT patients. We are thinking of you all!!

So.Have you learned any silly hand games at school yet? Have your mom show you. Amelia loves hand games and they were one of the highlights of kindergarten.

I just spent the last 2 hours reading most of your journal entries. I was truely touched by the strength that you and your husband posess to fight so hard for your daughter. My daughter, Hayden, was resently diagnosed with AML-M4. Hayden is 6 years old. She is in her 23rd day of her first round of chemo. at Georgetown Univ. We are originally from NC and are thinking of going to Duke should we need a BMT. Hayden has 2 sisters, neither which are a match, and we were told Duke was the place to be. At this point we do not know if Hayden will need at BMT although her WBC was 216,000 when she was admitted and she has a normal carrier type (no inversion 14 or 11q23 inversions) Obviously you have much more experience than we do - any words of advise? Iwish you daughter the best - I know she deserves it. Please give her a hug for me!

We went swimming, made crafts, and did lots of scooping rocks into buckets!
I made the mistake of volunteering Andrea to go up on stage during one of the evening programs...oops! She got me back by making me go up on stage and having Alex crack an egg in a dixie cup I held in my mouth (Alex missed) and doing an eating contest with a Sunday Alex apparently made with her feet!
My prayers are with Todd and Andrea and their beautiful kids Alex and Nic!!!

God Give Us eyes this Christmas
To see the Christmas Star.
And give us ears to hear the song
of angels from afar

And, with our eyes and ears attuned
for a message from above,
Let "Christmas Angels" speak to us
of hope and faith and love

Hope to light our pathway
When the way ahead is dark,
Hope to sing through stormy days,
with the sweetness of the lark

Faith to trust in things unseen
and know beyond all seeing
That it is in our Fathers love
We live and have our being

And love to break down barriers
of color, race and creed,
Love to see and understand
and help all those in need.

Lord, bless those we love this Christmas Day,be they near or far away Bless those good friends who mean so much and those with whom we're out of touch. We bring them all to You in prayer, and ask You to keep them in Your care.

Please know that you are thought of, in a very special way, not just this beautiful season but every day.|24 December 2004|3aSyXu|blank.gif|emoti2.gif|6:15:58 pm| Linda, Tim, Jeremy & Matthew|mailto:|http://||Hi Todd, Andrea, Alex & Nicholas

We ourselves are 270 days post BMT and our daughter has a nasty bruise so we are duly apprehesive about our bloodwork tomorrow. Not many folks out there w/ 2 relapses under their belt but these little gals are amazing and it helps to know the strength is in us to move forward. Our hopes and wonderful thoughts are with you all and Alex. All the best!|23 January 2005|qaRiRA|blank.gif|emoti25.gif|5:50:04 pm| Monica Martin||http://|Louisiana USA|Hello,Alex I found you on the Share the Love site.

Wow, what a cool guestbook---hope it goes through ok. I read your site regularly and keep up with Alex, but have never signed in. I am thrilled with how well Alex has done---what a MIRACLE she is!!!!!!! How is her sight doing now? I hope well! She is such a trooper! We will keep our prayers going for her!! I needed to ask you about the airline you have used to come to Duke with Alex-(Angel ?). Not sure what it is. I'm not sure, but this may be a long-shot, but we're gonna have to come to San Diego for surgeries to Jenna's knees (the 1st trip in Feb.) & I wanted to see if we could find anyone to fly us for medical reasons. If you have any info for me--please call or e-mail. Thanks so much for your time--I know life is very busy! Love Ya'll!

We have been fighting Roto virus and spent some time in-patient at children's last week. Things seem better this week, not all gone but better. Nolan has been growing and looks more like a 2 1/2 year old now, maybe not acting like one but we are working on that. I would love to see you guys sometime!! So if you ever get this way let us know. We miss you.

|1 March 2005|4jAVAW|blank.gif|emoti2.gif|09:14:53 am| Jennifer Phelan|||Pennsylvania|Hello,
I stumbled across this website somehow. I was looking for new bedding for my son's room and this screen popped up for Alex's coupons, then I saw the link to Childhood Cancer and I had to hit it.

I've been a bereaved mom for 4 years and 4 months now. I lost my daughter, Georgiana, after a 17-month battle with AML. Well, actually she had Lymphoma first and the treatments cauased her relapse, which was AML. She needed a BMT for any chance of survival, but we never got that far. Georgiana passed 4 weeks before her 8th birthday.

It is SO GOOD to read a story of hope like Alex's. I have become so negative towards the "cures" that we all hear about because so many children I have met have lost their battle. Alex's story gives HOPE, and God only knows that this world needs alot of that.

I will continue to keep Alex in my prayers and will definitely pray for a long, healthy road ahead for her.

Mom to Beautiful Angel Georgiana

Such an amazing and hopeful story. My son is engrafted and we a waiting for the FISH test to see if the cells are donor cells. Thank you for posting your story. Your daughter is such an inspiration and confirmation that there is always hope and to never give up.

I posted a mini-update on Alex's Place with 7 new photos and information on a new bill to increase funding for public cord blood banks.

Hope everything is going great. Take care

Your daughter must be so wonderfully strong and brave and so must both of you.
