Macy was our shining star with the most infectious smile and cute personality. She loved Hello Kitty and Alvin and The Chipmunks. At home, Macy enjoyed playing with her brother, Ethan. In March 2008, when only 11 months old, Macy was diagnosed with Stage 4 Clear Cell Sarcoma of the Kidney, a rare childhood cancer that affects approximately 20 children a year in the US. She completed an aggresive chemo and radiation therapy treatment. At the end of treatment, the CCSK had spread to her brain. She went through brain surgery and additional chemo and radiation. She spent the summer of 2009 cancer-free. In September 2009, we discovered, as a a result of her previous cancer therapy, she developed AML (Leukemia), requiring additional chemo and a stem cell transplant.
Macy passed away on August 6, 2010.
