Wiersma Family Blog

A glimpse into our lives as a family with micro-preemies. Our twins boys (Lovingly referred to as our Miracle Men) were born almost 16 weeks early.

Our journey continues when our son Max was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 3. This is his story....

April 18

Change of plans!!!!
We don't have to be admitted tomorrow for "chemo weekend"! They changed our schedule around a little. We now have to go in on Tuesday through Thursday next week. I am so thrilled that he gets a whole week home (God willing) before chemo. It will give him time to get healthier and stronger for the next round.

Everyday he is a little more himself. Today he wasn't real active but he talked more. He walked around a little bit and SMILED!!!  I missed that most of all.


  1. So glad you guys finally caught a break. Praying you see more smiles and more of YOUR Max in the days to come.

    Prayers that the chemo does the job and that Max will be cancer-free (and chemo-free) very soon!!

    Love you all!

  2. So many prayers are being said for your family! All of the ladies in the Tuesday morning Bible study at Rockford Reformed Church are keeping you lifted up before the throne of grace. So glad you have some family time at home before the next hospital stay!

  3. Keep it up guys, one day at a time! Enjoy the smiles and your weekend together!
    Sending you lots of prayers that next week will go better.
    Love to you all,
