My Story

Allyson, Ally Pally to those who know and love her, is a spunky little four-year-old; she has been since the day she was born. Ally was born with Down syndrome, but someone forgot to tell her she's got an extra chromosome! She has been amazing people from day one. Now is no exception. About six weeks ago, Allyson was diagnosed with ALL. She's been deemed the "super trooper" as she never complains about her treatments. She loves life and her smile is infectious. She LOVES to be outside to enjoy her sandbox and swing set. She enjoys music and will entertain all with her singing and dancing. Because it is winter, she has found many things to keep her busy while having to stay inside. She loves to play games, to play stickers, to build with her legos, to color, and a new favorite - to play with the Wii.
