Cancer Patient's Mom Awaits Call

Sometimes, the ticks of the clock come as slow as Christmas.

"It's going in slow motion," Lisa Grice told us, waiting for a call that could make or break her holiday spirit. Her six-year-old daughter Jordan has leukemia.

"I've been doing this since 2 this morning," says as she sits by the phone. "I couldn't go to sleep."

The call is momentous, considering the past three years of struggle and sickness. Jordan was diagnosed at three and she's had two bone marrow transplants.

The phone call could reveal whether the cancer is in remission. If not, she could face a third transplant.

"Just go ahead and expect the worst, then I'll be really really excited," Lisa tells us. "A third time, I don't know how they keep going. I don't know how your body can keep doing all that."

Thankfully, the news on the phone is good. Preliminary results show no signs of leukemia. In January, they'll know for sure if the cancer is in remission.
"I'm just trying to breath," Lisa told us, after a grueling day of waiting.

All she wanted this Christmas, finally arrived. Priceless tears of joy, were just what the doctor ordered.
