Lilli was 8 months old when she was diagnosed with infant leukemia. After six months of treatment Lilli underwent a bone marrow transplant and remained in remission for 440 days. Her time in remission was wonderful and Lilli could pursue her love of bluegrass music, the outdoors, animals (especially dogs and bugs!), and playing with her friends. She especially likes to walk along her gravel road and look for newts and caterpillars and smell the flowers in the summertime.
When Lilli isn't outside, she likes to cook in her pretend kitchen and make her Mom and Dad lots of tea and cheese sandwiches. She also likes to care for her baby dolls, singing them songs and dancing with them to all sorts of music. She is a very considerate child who likes to make sure that everyone gets hugs and evening snuggles. Most of all, Lilli loves to dance and smile. Those things, cancer can not take away.
