Hi all – Welcome to SweetSallySunshine.com, our new home for Sally’s updates as she undergoes treatment for Leukemia at Memorial Sloan Kettering. The name is a combination of Mommy and Daddy’s nicknames for our little girl, those being Sweet Sally and Sally Sunshine. All updates will be posted here from now on. We’re starting this site for two reasons:
1) The idea of Caring Bridge using Sally’s name to raise money for their own site bothers us. Many people made their “tribute” donations to Sally, which go right to the site, not Sally. We feel this is dishonest.
2) With Sally’s diagnosis finalized and her treatment started, its time to put the last month’s roller coaster behind us and start fresh.
We’ve got some work to do on the site, like adding photos and more information, but in the end this will give us a bit more ownership of our updates and is a lot more customizable.

I want to thank Shannon and Elliot, two amazing parents who are also supporting a beautiful daughter fighting cancer here at Memorial Sloan Kettering, for helping us set this up along with their friend Dave Breiland.
We also want to thank you for joining us on this road to recovery for Sally that we have begun. Doing it with the support of friends and family will help us through the tough times. We love you and can’t thank you enough for being there with us.
Matt, Nicole, Thomas, William & Sally
