    Ollie – I just want to say that I am so incredibly thankful that you are as brave as you are. I know you were scared in that hospital – and got picked and prodded so many times. But, you did it lady. You will forever walk through this life in heels….and we will all be by your side cheering you on.
    We love you to the moon and back!

    Ollie,
    Can you believe that until I was age 25 I was allergic to “cotton candy”? In Australia, we call cotton candy “fairy floss”. isn’t that cute?
    My mummy had always told me that I had a fairy floss allergy, and it meant I sadly couldn’t eat fairy floss.
    Well, when I was 25 years old, and at MY first Giants game, i announced to T Bone that I couldn’t eat cotton candy due to my allergy. T Bone laughed….so I tried some..and we discovered that not only was my “allergy” a cheeky myth from my mum….but also that I REALLY like cotton candy 🙂

    Dear Olive,

    Baby Fern is sending you lots of NYC love. At least I think that’s what she’s saying… To me it sounds like babbling, drooling and farting. We could use a kid translator right now–feel like volunteering?

    G’day Ollie!
    I’m such a big boy now that I can feed myself and I don’t want any help from mum or dad.
    Here’s a picture of me after I ate my weetbix for breakkie. I bet you can’t even tell that I ate it all by myself!

    Ollie!
    Mum and I found this Kookaburra in the park on our walk today! He wasn’t laughing when we saw him, can you guess why?
    Do you remember that the Kookaburra’s only laugh when it’s about to rain?
    Do you remember the Kookaburra song? My mum sings it to me all the time. It goes like this:
    Kookaburra sits in the old gum tr-ee
    Merry merry King of the bush is he-e
    Laugh, Kookaburra, Laugh Kookaburra, gay your life must be!
    With love from your friend Koa X

    Dear Olive and family!
    This month has been special for me! I hope it’s been special for you too! I have seen THREE of your friends in 3 different states! How can that be??!!! I saw Tyler in California and in Hawaii and I saw Huxton and Remi here in Vermont! We ALL thought of you many times! I hope you are having a good summer and I hope your Mom or Dad get a chance to tell us about it, soon! Just know we send you love and hugs if and when you need them! OH! I forgot to tell you! One day in Maui, I was reading a book and a lady bug started climbing all over my hand which REALLY made me think of you…..and at the very same time I heard Katy Perry’s /YOUR SONG… Hear me roar!!!!!!!!! ( someone had their sound system on VERY loud in the condo!!! SO perfectly timed with the lady bug visit!!!

    Dear Olive,

    I have been thinking about you lately and I wanted to send a little “hello” through the internet! In fact, I saw a beautiful little yellow ladybug the other day, which reminded me of you…tiny and strong and cheery like the sun.

    It was really great to meet you and your awesome parents and sister at the Children’s Museum. It was such a special performance and I hope it leaves you magical memories and a happy heart.

    Fondly,

    Dear Olive,

    Can you believe there’s only 8 more days left of school this year? We miss you at school. We had fun doing a cookie science experiment in our class and presenting our boards at the School Science Fair. It was an awesome day to remember!

    Here’s an invitation to come watch us get promoted next week. We’ll sing a song loud and proud for you! We hope you get a chance to visit Disneyland and Las Vegas this summer because some of us think it’s the best place in the whole world! What are your summer plans?

    We hope you can come back to school next year. Hopefully you feel better and recover quickly.

    With Our Love,

    Hi Ollie, your yoga pose is perfect!! You need to teach me a couple poses when I see you next. It takes a lot of patience and practice to make the poses as beautful and affective as you are doing them.

    Hi Olive, You might not remember me but I am Michael and Lucas’ dad. I am writing to you to tell you how much all of us admire you here back in Boston. You are a superhero to all of us and we talk about you very often! There are even people here, all the way across the country, that you’ve never met but know your story and are rooting and praying for you to feel better everyday!

    I started this message out identifying myself as Michael and Lucas’ dad. That’s something I’m pretty proud to say. I am also very proud and lucky to indentify myself as a friend of THE one and only Olive Diamond! Please keep up all of your amazing work, I know you will, and we all look forward to hearing about more great days like this past weekend!

    Hi Dear Olive,
    Am so glad to hear you had a nice weekend with your family. As every Wednesday I was helping in class today and you came to my mind. Your friends will dance in the auditorium tomorrow I will bring my little camera to make a video and send it to you I am sure you will have fun watching it.
    We miss you.

    Hi Ollie- I just watched the Roar video of your classmates, and you are the luckiest gal. They are awesome!

    Tanner, Jason and I went mini golfing in San Rafael tonight, and it was a blast. He got 59, Jason got 60, and I got 63. Tanner beat both of us. We all thought it would be so much fun to do the next time you come to Marin. You can even get a Slushie when you’re done. The blue one makes your teeth turn blue.

    Have a great week, and we love you!

    Hi Olive!
    It was so nice to see you on FaceTime the other day at school I loved the camera you showed to everyone. Isabella keeps asking about you I was hoping if we can get to see you sometime soon.
    I miss you when I help in class. I am glad to hear Mrs Cuper is teaching you so much cool stuff seems like you are reading pretty good already I am so excited for you…is there any book you would like me to get you?
    Tonight before bed time Isabella asked to pray for you Olive it was very sweet.

    Much Love

    Hi Olive.

    Lots of big and little people at FS Key miss you, and we think of you whenever we hear Katy Perry sing Roar. We thought it would be fun to make a video for you, so you always know your friends are proud of you and are by your side.
    I called Miss Iliza, from your Theatre Arts class. She knows just how to get lots of little kids to sing all together. She offered to come to FS Key and sing with your friends! Miss Iliza brought Miss Olga, who is a great pianist. Mrs Cuper and 105 practiced, and practiced, and practiced singing ROAR. On the day of the performance, all of your friends dressed up like ladybugs in red and black and got up on the stage in the Auditorium. A group of (angels) film students at San Francisco State University brought their video cameras and filmed everything. And just like that, we had a real rock show!

    Here it is, thanks to lots of people who care about you. We hope you SING every time you see it.

    Hi Ollie!

    What is your favorite TV show? Mine is Alias. It’s no longer on TV so I’m sure you haven’t heard of it, but it’s really, really (like, super really) good.

    The main character is Sydney Bristow. She is a super secret CIA agent, saving the world from evil doings – all while pretending to be a regular girl at school. You’d never know she was such a tough cookie just by looking at her. Most of the time, she looks just like us! But, in every episode, she has to shed her girl-next-door routine and kick into high gear to save the day!

    One of my favorite episodes is where she had to wear a bright red wig and pretend to be a punk rocker to get the information she needed from the bad guys. I think she looks AWESOME. Such a badass. So cool. She plays by her own rules and doesn’t take no for an answer!

    Sounds like another tough cookie I know…(you!)

    I just LOVE hearing those numbers are good! Keep being you. We love you so so much.

    And keep doing your yoga! Hopefully we can do some when I come again. I’ve been doing some research about what poses would be most fun (and helpful) for you. I’ve also been researching what nail colors are in! Maybe a sparkly green for St. Patrick’s day? And what about pretty pastels – maybe a different color for each nail – for Easter.

    Love you guys!!!! Keep celebrating the wins.

You will be getting in the mail something from Goldi Blox that I hope will be fun for you when you might be feeling sad.

    Hi Olive,

    It’s Audrey’s mom here. Audrey wants to share three more of her FUNNIEST jokes with you:

    Q:How do you stop an elephant from charging?
    A: Take away his credit cards.

    Q: What was the elephant doing at the baggage claim?
    A: Waiting for his trunk.

    Q: How do you make an elephant float?
    A: Two scoops of ice cream, lots of root beer, and one elephant.

    At school on Friday some of the kids and teachers dressed up as their favorite characters from books. Most of the kinders were Things 1 & 2, and so were Mrs Maffei and Mrs Heffernan! Ms Tong in 1st grade dressed up as the mouse from “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie!” There were lots of Harry Potters, of course. We saw an Angel Rapper and a Dragon Rapper, (but wait, were they really from a book?) Audrey dressed up as Matilda from “Matilda”. What character would you like to dress up as, Olive?
    Friday was also Bookstore Day, and the moms and dads at FS Key never forget to pick up a special book for you. We’ll drop it off this week. Go Diamonds! Go Olive!

    Love,
    Audrey’s mom, Caroline

    Hi Diamond’s:

    I just read the last report and am in awe of your stamina and love for this little angel. I’d be on the floor crying with Olive! It has to the hardest thing in the world to go through this day in and day out. Not to mention seeing your little girl in pain & I’m so sorry that you have to endure this torment.

    You are , however not alone. I was just asked to make a hat with hair for a little boy, as he lost his hair too going through chemo.

    Your posts are truly inspirational and so well written–and gut wrenching to the core. Maybe it’s a good way to vent and get it all out. Very smart.

    God bless you Olive. It will get better sweetie.

  147. Hi Olive:

    You don’t know me, but I was very fortunate to have met Sheryl & Allen Bar many moons ago. Sheryl told me that she knows a very, very special & beautiful little girl named Olive who is having kind of a tough time right now feeling well. And so , she asked if I’d make you some pretty hats with hair, as I recently started to make some for women who are sick.
    As you know, it’s just not fun being sick, and to have something fun to wear always helps! Anyway, you were my very first little girl that I made them for and I’m hoping you have fun with them –and I am so proud of you for all you have been through and that you are my first little model to wear my hats.
    God bless you angel.

    Hi Ollie!

    Sometimes life just calls for a little random dancing, don’t you think?

    When I’m irritable, feeling frustrated or even just, in general, having a ‘blahhh’ moment…a little jig helps clear the cobwebs & gives me a quick boost of energy.

    Have you ever tried it?

    What if…the next time you’re at the hospital…you do a few boogie-down moves right in the hallway or even in the waiting room? I mean, why not?! Check out this video…I think these folks would agree.

    It takes being Brave to just get up and dance!

    Ollie,
    As you know, we went skiing in Tahoe this weekend. We skied in the morning but it was snowing so hard – a wet, to-the-bone-cold day. We were tired. Our muscles were sore. We really wanted to stay in the lodge after feeling it’s warmth during our lunch break.

    But we didn’t.

    Instead, we ordered one more, gave a loud, thunderous toast to The Diamonds and went out for another run.

    You continue to inspire us everyday. Stay strong. Stay brave.

    This is your Black Diamond and you’re doing just fine.

    Jack, Reese, Wyatt and Tanner did their best to follow in Olive’s boots. They rocked it in ski school. Get ready for next Winter, Ollie. You’re getting some company on the mountain. Keep kicking cancer’s butt so you can show the kids who’s still the boss!

    Ollie – I just read your mom’s latest post about being fearless, and it reminded me of the time we went bike riding in GG Park almost 2 years ago. We went to your favorite part – the one where you can bomb down the narrow cement path. You know the one – the one with the hill, big enough to make you lose your breath walking up. Tanner was double your size, but could only go down the hill from half way up. But you, you fearless daredevil, went down from the tippy top at least 20x, all without breaks. The first few times got your mom and I a bit nervous (as well as all the passing strangers who couldn’t believe someone so young and small was doing this). But after a few convincing “I’ve got this, mom” moments, we knew you could do anything you set your sights on.

    This is Griffin’s mom, Miss Jennifer. Remember me? I’m one of your art-in-action teachers. Anyway, as a hobby I like to crochet things out of yarn, and I would love to make you a hat or three using pretty, soft, natural fibers.

    Can you tell me what your favorite colors are? Maybe purple? (Just a guess!) Are there any colors you would never wear?

    Would you like a butterfly beanie, monster hat, sun hat, baseball cap, or even a crown? Some of my ideas are here: http://www.pinterest.com/jennteu/olive-the-brave/. If you have other ideas for a hat you’d love, let me know! I’m not an expert crocheter, but I can try.

    Griffin and his big sister Zoe say hi, too.

    Hi Ollie!

    Do you know what a gemstone is? It’s a shiny, pretty stone used to make jewelry. Gemstones come in many colors, many shapes, many sizes. Gemstones can be used in rings, on necklaces, as bracelets…or even as earrings! Some of my favorite gemstones are sapphires, emeralds and…DIAMONDS. Did you know that, of all the gemstones out there, diamonds are the strongest? You can never break them. Most other gemstones can be squished, scratched, scraped, chipped, crushed, cracked…but not diamonds! Nothing can hurt a DIAMOND.

    Hi Olive,
    I’ve heard you love the song roar! We love that song too.
    I always think about you specially on Wednesday when I go to help Mrs Cuper class. I am so glad she is coming to your house I bet you are learning all the numbers and letters 🙂

    I hope you are enjoying your karaoke machine. I miss you and I miss your mom too.

    Much Love

    Meg and Family,
    Your positivity and determination are truly inspiring. What a strong and brave little girl you’ve got there; no surprise given how strong and amazing her mom and dad seem too! I’ve already been SO inspired by Janaelle (my sister-in-law) and the journey she braved through that it’s only fitting to now feel just as inspired by one of her best friends. You girls are amazing!! Thank you for sharing your journey.
    Sending lots of positive thoughts to you and that precious little girl of yours!!

    Olive,

    I’m not sure what fuddy-duddy crazy stuff Wyatt is filling your head with. I am your boyfriend, and I have a love note to prove it. It’s proudly displayed on my wall. It’s my first love note, and you’re my first love (despite you not letting me kiss you last week). But I get it. I’ll wait.

    I love Katie Perry. I love veggie burgers. And I have a Phineas and Ferb karaoke player. If you ever need a good song during chemo, I highly recommend “Eye of the Tiger” or “The Dreidel Song,” both of which I have. Mi casa es su casa, my sweets.

    XOXOXO,
    Tanner

Kudos to you all for allowing us to be part of the journey towards Ollie’s recovery. You all remain in my prayers.

    Hi Olive,
    I remember when I didn’t have a chance to go see you in the hospital. I’m sorry that I didn’t go. So I have a surprise for you.

    My mommy told me you might lose your hair. And I still want you as my Valentine. I’m prepared to knock Tanner out of the way. Shhhh, don’t tell Reese. My mom and Auntie Kara have been trying to marry us for a long long time.

    I know Luke is going to marry Quinn.

    Ok, that’s it.

    But there’s more!

    I have so much jokes for you. Will you call me sometime so I can tell them to you? Shhh, don’t tell Tanner.

    Love,
    Wyatt

    You’re just the coolest, bravest, toughest kid any of us has ever known. We are all rooting for you and thinking of you often. I think we all can (and are) learning a lot from your courageousness. That is so special – as are you.

    Sending lots of love your way from Los Angeles! And I hope we get to meet in person down the line!

    Cousin Brady, and his dog Boston are both taking a nap. We went to the playground and played with a girl his age named Samara by running after each other, racing toy cars down the slide, climbing and riding on a tractor.
    We think about you often. When I watch Brady next week I will have him draw you and Quinn a picture. He likes to make circles and lines and use all the crayon colors! My Mom says hello and loves your beautiful smile.

    Happy Australia Day, Ollie!
    Today, 26th January is a very special day for us Aussies. It’s a lot like July 4th for you. We were with you in San Francisco last July 4th, remember? Australia Day is a national holiday and people like to fly the Aussie flag, sing funny songs, & drink beer.
    The 26th January 1788 is the day that Captain Arthur Phillip sailed into Sydney harbour to declare Australia a new colony of Great Britain.
    Maybe mum can show you on a map of the world where Australia is, and how long of a boat journey it would have been from England.
    When Captain Arthur Phillip landed in Australia he was really excited because it meant that he could unload all the convicts he had brought with him from England. He brought 7 boat loads of prisoners! The convicts weren’t necessarily bad people, some had only stolen a loaf of bread for their family to eat. But because England is only a small island (compared to Australia, it’s tiny, isn’t it?) and because back then even small crimes like stealing bread meant you got sent to jail, the jails in England were packed full and they needed more space to house all the prisoners!
    Around this time, America declared their independence from England, after a big war, I wonder if you have learned about that in school? Maybe you can tell me about it sometime Ollie, coz TBones ain’t so hot with his American history.
    The 7 boat loads of prisoners were really hard workers, so they got to work building a new colony for England. They built roads and bridges and houses and even their own jail! They were rewarded for their hard work by being given farms in the countryside to grow crops and raise sheep. ( There are a LOT of sheep in Australia). When you come visit us, maybe we can go to my Uncle Mike’s farm where there are sheep and cows and lots and lots of kangaroos!
    Here’s a picture of Koa waving his Aussie flag.
    Happy Australia Day!

    My Sweet Olive,
    I’m in an airplane high above the clouds on my way back to Philadelphia and thinking about the bravest, smartest, most beautiful (inside and out) five year old I know…YOU!! We had so much fun – being chefs in the kitchen together, homework time (you finished it all and wanted more!!), writing stories, and especially listening and watching you sing along with Katy Perry. I think that was your favorite, too! I’ll see you on FaceTime and I’ll hug you in March.
    Lots of love,
    Grandmom

I saw a picture of you and Quinn on their refrigerator and Michelle told us all about you and your story. You sure sound like a superhero (I love superheroes)! We are sending you and your family lots of love and happy thoughts from Truckee. Maybe when you feel better one day we will get to play together. Until then, my mommy is sending you girls some fun craft kits, hopefully she used the right address and they will arrive on Tues & Wed. Smile and stay strong!

I am very sorry to hear you are going though these challenges right now, but things will be better. You are a very brave girl and a role model for many other people in this world. Keep it up!

    We are sending you warm wishes and positive thoughts from Miami! Maybe you can look up that spot on a map?

    Dearest Olive,
    HELLO from the Ninja Turtles, Ms. Nhi & Ms. Lisa! You have been in our thoughts! Not one day goes by that a student doesn’t ask me “Where’s Olive?” We made a flip-book with well wishes.. but I’m putting on the finishing touches. I hope you get to read each and every one of them and feel all the love that each one of us sends you! I have to say that you hold a special place in my heart ever since the first day of After School Program. From the times i’d pick you up from class (you being in tears after a long morning) to you never giving up your spot as my line buddy. EVERYONE wanted to be my line buddy, but noooo. Anywho, through all the 9 years of kids who have come and gone to upper grades, there will always be those who leave you smiles and great moments to look back on. I wish you well Olive, many wishes, many hugs, and many non-germy kisses, not just from me, but the class and ms. Nhi. You will definitely be missed but never forgotten. Remember Olive…TOUGH MOMENTS DON’T LAST, TOUGH DIAMONDS DO 🙂

    Best to you Olive and the entire DIAMOND family
    Hope you hear from you soon!

    Always,
    Ms. Lisa <3

    Hi Ollie!

    Thinking of you today and had a thought…do you like Top 40 music like I do? A girl’s gotta have her fun dance tunes to get fired up, right?! Sometimes I listen to these types of songs before a big scary meeting…helps remind me that I can handle anything! I heard this particular Top 40 song on the radio today…do you know that YOU are a champion and YOU will ROAR!?! Go get ’em, Ollie!
