Nathan and Elisa Bond are a young married couple with a beautiful 18 month old daughter named Sadie. They do everything together. They love spending all their time together, and just by looking at their pictures you can tell how in love they are. On Valentine's Day they were devastated to learn that Nathan had stage 3 rectal cancer. Together, they geared up to fight his cancer.
Nine days later...
Elisa was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer.
And now, they are battling cancer, truly, together. Right now it's chemo, in the future it will be radiation and surgery... and they're holding each other and Sadie together. Through cancer. Watch more of their story below...
Have I mentioned lately that cancer sucks? I mean really?! How does this even happen?! You can see an interview with Nathan and Elisa right here and visit their website here. It was set up by a bunch of their fabulous friends to help them through their journey. You can also read Nathan and Elisa's personal blog here. You can also join Team Bond on Facebook. Please keep this sweet family in your prayers. I can't even imagine what they are feeling right now. I know they have to be devastated. They say in their interview that their story is one of HOPE, and that is what I will be praying for... hope... not only for them, but for Sadie. She needs her mommy and daddy. Cancer sucks.

Welcome to my blog where I take on day to day life with my five amazing children: Kassidy, Kameron, Kennedy, Keeghan & Kellsey, and a husband in the Military. Join us as we face issues with Down syndrome, Leukemia, Deployments, and every day life with 5 young kids! You'll be in for the ride of your life!
My name is Renee, I am 34 years old, I am married to the Army... oh wait I mean I'm married to a Soldier, my hero. Same thing right? I am a misplaced Californian who lives in Colorado by way of Tennessee. I am a mini-van driving soccer mom... I always knew I would be! I am blessed to be able to stay home with my 5 amazing kids. Kassidy: my beautiful, too smart for her own good, funny, dramatic 13 year old who is starting her teen years with grace. Kameron: My high strung, smart, artistic, creative, silly, sometimes mysterious 11 year old who loves musical theater and acting. My 8 year old diva, Kennedy: who will most often be found dancing or dreaming of Justin Bieber. She's destined for the stars! Keeghan: my crazy, funny, silly, handsome 5 year old monkey who loves to ask me a million questions all day long; and our 6 year old Ukrainian Princess Kellsey who is finding her way in the world as she battles Reactive Attachment Disorder. Our goal for her is to make sure she knows she is always loved, wherever that may take her... I'm so incredibly blessed.
