My daughter who is 6 1/2 is coming up on her 1st year anniversary of being cancer free. Her name is Faith and she was diagnosed with Leukemia when she was 3. She underwent 26months of chemotherapy and June will mark her 1 year off of chemo. We are having a party again this year and I want to make the cake special. Last year I just bought one from a grocery store but would like to make it myself this year. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
SHayla

Faith is a very strong and blessed little girl. How about a cake with the orange leukemia awareness ribbon on it (maybe some flowers too). You could write Faith Conquers All. I don't know if that's special enough but it's what came to mind.

I'm really, really glad Faith is off of Chemo and doing well. That's something to celebrate for sure!

She is a little girl...I would make a cake with her favorite things or cartoon people on it. Make this a day of looking to a "normal" future doing things any 6 1/2 year old would do.

Well ask her what her most favorite thing is. Perhaps then you will have an idea of what she wants and you can make it special from there....... thats what I would do.... I know our kids are our lives and we want whats best for them.....

As our children is our future, we allways wants the best for them. You could ask your daughter what she have in her dreams, and get an idea out of that.

OH, Sgirvan that is wonderful news!!!! I'm so happy for you & Faith!!!! I'm so happy you shared that news with us! Gives me something else to be happy & feel blessed about!!! Thank you!!

What about a princess cake? A 3 tiered cake with all of Faith's favorite colors on it? My niece will be 10 in Oct & she has ordered (LOL) a topsy tervy cake from me! She wants lots of bright colors on it~ Hopefully I can make one by then! I know girls love bright colors. A tier cake would make her feel very special LIKE SHE IS!!!!

Hi, sgirvan. I don't have any special ideas. But I wanted to tell you how happy I am that your daughter is doing so well. You have an amazing gift with this new chance at a "normal" life for her. It is a blessing, but I am sure that you know that. I will keep you and yours in my prayers. Faith is a wonderful name for your wonderful baby-I know that she is a big girl! Take care!
