October update

Hello All,

We hope all of you are enjoying the fall.  Peter, Ellie and Kate are all enrolled in 2nd grade, Kindergarten, and Pre-School respectively and really loving school.  They are involved in hockey, gymnastics and swimming along with all of the other things that kids their age do.  All three of them are really excited about Halloween of course.  Peter is going as Wolverine from X-men, Ellie is going to be a cheerleader and Kate is going to be a Princess, Ariel, Barbi or basically whatever she decides on that day!  Also, congrats to Erika, Auntie Meese’s and Auntie G for fininshing the Twin Cities 10 mile.  They all trained very hard and did really well.  Away from school and all the activities, Peter is doing great health wise.  He has lot’s of energy, appetite is good and he is growing which are all great things!

Also, please keep Erik Ludwinski and Mary Virnig in your prayers.  They are young adults who we have met along this journey who are still in the middle their battle with this awful disease.  Erik is truly a hero to all parents and children with Neuroblastoma and Mary has more determination than any young lady I have ever met.  Your prayers for them will be greatly appreciated.

Peter is due back in NYC the first week of November for scans and tests, and as always we can’t thank you enough for all of your support and prayers.  We know that we are so lucky to have all of you on Peter’s team.

God Bless,

Ty, Erika, Peter, Ellie and Kate

  3. Dear Erika, Ty, Peter, Eleanor and Katherine,

    Good to hear from you and to know that all is well in Eigner family-land. These are the delightful musings we like to read about.

    We think of you all the time and celebrate your good news and we always pulling for you.

    It sounds like you have quite the cast of characters set for Halloween, but of course we are wondering how Ty and Erika are going to round out the ensemble; in other words what are you two going to be (other than great mom and dad marathoners who never give up their cause)? We expect to see pictures posted that tell the whole truth of the two of you in full costume!

    Great hearing from you and this posting has placed smiles on our faces this morning.

    All the best,


    Terry Forbord and Rebecca Hopf

  4. hello peter, ty, erika, ellie, kate. my name is andrea. my son, arieson, also has nb and is a relapse patient. we were receiving treatment at cpmc in san francisco, but recently transferred to lucile packard children’s hospital in palo alto, ca in hopes to eventually end up in sloan. reading about your experiences, it sounds like sloan has an efficient regimen for kids who are suffering from this awful disease. peter is a strong kid. i hope the best for you and your family.

    when you have the time, check out arieson’s (my son’s) caringbridge.
