A blog documenting the days in the lives of the Bond Family including Nathan, Elisa, Sadie and Griffin.
BEAUTIFUL! <3 to all of you!
Love, Love, Love to all of you. Keep smiling...
what a smile....best medicine for a mommy and daddy!
God bless you all. You are all so strong just like my mom was. Her story was highly similar to that of Elisa's and she fought for 11 years so don't ever give up. I enjoy reading your blog and pray things start looking up for you. You manage to stay positive through situations that others would just throw a pity party for. Keep fighting Bond family!
What a cutie-pie!!! And yes, great medicine for mom & dad.
beautiful. glad it was a smiling day. wishing millions of them. bean

She has really grown up in the last year. Smiley and happy. Glad you didn't cry but just enjoyed Sadie and her first of many graduations that I know you will witness.

Elisa and NathanI met you yesterday-at NYU, while waiting for my dear friend, to come out of her PET scan. I can't stop thinking about our meeting and I feel I am truly blessedto have 'ran into you' both today. I have been following your posts and recognized you from your photos. Keep writing, both of you...Your posts are not only witty-but keep us (your audience) smiling and hopeful. I was on a such a 'high' leaving the hospital. PS--I sent you a private message to the "inspireteambond" email address. All my best, Emily
She is growing so fast!!!... Congrats to all...
what a cutie pie--love those curls!!
What a very special day..so glad to hear it was the gift of a happy day with smiles. Sadie is beautiful. I pray you have many more gifts of days of smiles!!
Wishing you a life of happy milestones and special moments with your darling daughter.
Congratulations on Sadie's milestone (and yours)!
So happy you had a wonderful day.
Awww! Sadie is just so adorable. God bless you all and keep you all!!
Sadie is so beautiful! I'm so glad that you were able to celebrate this very special day together. Sending you good wishes and thoughts.
She looks like Mommy! Beautiful!! Sending you good wishes and hugs from Texas:)
Jesus is Healer! Please put your trust and faith in Him. Healing, strength, comfort, courage, power, and eternal life, all come from Him. God loves you so very very much, more than you can ever be able to fathom or imagine...so much that He died for you on the cross. Believe and trust in Him today, the only true and living God. God Bless you!
Such wonderful news and darling photo! Enjoy your summer together. :o)
Dear Elisa, Did I tell you, you are my inspiration? I am another stranger whose heart is with you and your sweet family every day. I realized today that I have fallen into being a selfish voyeur who has posted only the most minimal responses while being inspired greatly by both your and Nathan’s courage, endurance, strength. My apologies. Good thoughts for you have been in my mind but I haven't let you know how much your words have inspired me. I want to thank you for sharing your pain and triumphs, and dear Sadie’s antics and growth. She is one gorgeous, adorable, precocious girl, the cutest! Through the last months I have found your writing quite extraordinary.To read a woman with perspective, who through the thick of it, can focus on weight loss, shows a magnitude of courage and femininity I so admire. And, BTW, your pictures through chemo have been stunning. GO girl, go.
good for you. One day at a time - happy this day was a happy smiling day for you all.God Bless you.
Been following you for quite some time now and feel like I know you. So excited for you and Nathan experiencing another great milestone! Savor the moment and keep moving forward! Congratulations Sadie!!!
Beautiful little girl and beautiful Mom. This picture just makes me smile. Thanks for sharing! I hope you had a wonderful day - I know you did. Happy Anniversary as well :) Keep on trucking Bonds! Congratulations to that sweet girl - just beautiful! Happy Summer!!!
May you have countless more smiles and days of joy. Your blog has been so moving and poignant. Thank you for sharing your journey.
Those smiles are surely contagious!! Keep them ON forever :)BIGG HUG to Sadie and lots and lots of good wishes and prayers to Ur family!!
Praying for you,Nathan and all of your family in Jesus name for a miracle of healing!!
Smiles are great. So is weeping. Love u guys,Ronps Sometimes I do both for u at the same time.:) .... :(
She's so cute - I love her curly Hair:-) Looove !
You are an absolute inspriation to me, Elisa. I have been following your blog and story/updates from your first appearance on the Today show over a year ago when I was holed up in a hotel traveling, bitching because the airline lost my luggage. I'm a mom of two young daughters and fought some health issues myself, but your strength, comedic sense of humor and love of family puts a smile on my face everytime I see your daughter's picture/updates. You have a blessed family...I continue to pray for your recovery. -Karen
I follow your blog and just never know what to say. Just know that I am thinking of you this morning and sending you love. Just sending you love....Wendy over in California
We think of you and Nathan and Sadie every day. Your beautiful, honest funny, terrifying, deeply moving writing is truly a gift. The last time, we saw each other our daughters were just born, but we think of you and Nathan and Sadie every day. Much love, Gabe, Sara (and Anya)
Thinking of you today, Bond family, and hoping all of you are doing well. Love from Oklahoma.
Hoping all went well with your June testing!Thinking of all of you--
Hey Elisa, saw the video of Sadie dancing. What a doll. Healing thoughts coming your way, hope you're doing okay. ~Seattle
Hi Eliza & family, I've been following your story since a mutual friend posted it on Facebook. Your story struck a chord with me because we have a daughter the same age. Keep up your good spirits and wit -- think of you often and send lots of good vibes & energy your way.
Having kicked cancers ass 2 years ago, I have great respect and admiration for both yours and Nathans candid approach to the whole ordeal. You are so open,honest and inspirational and I know you will both kick cancers ass too!! Stay strong, stay happy and stay united...you will all get through this and look back in the future and laugh...just the other day I remembered my mum having to tie my hairbrush to the towel rack as my memory got so bad I would lose it at least daily! Cancer never completely goes...if we're lucky, the physical damage to our body goes but the scars are there forever. but they make us stronger...they make us proud. you will get through this xxx
It has been almost 2 months since Elisa's last post. Can someone please let us know what is going on? I look for updates every single day, weekends too, and am so concerned. Thanx,:) Chrisie
Dear Bond Family,I am praying for you daily. Minnesota Mom
Just a note from a stranger....sending positive energy and prayers up and out for you all. Letting us all know how you are is fab, but focusing on your fam and friends when you are feeling up to it is more important.Much loveKMD
Just wanted you guys to know that you are being thought of and prayed for and rooted for every day. Hang on to that. Annie
Praying all is well and you all are healthy and enjoying the summertime with Sadie!
Never commented but have been checking and reading for a long time now. So filled with admiration for your and your family. Think of you daily with hope.
Haven't heard an update in a while. Hope things are going well. Please let us know how everybody is doing.
Loved the spoiler!
Wonderful update! Hugs & kisses to all!
