My Story

On September 19, 2007 our 2 year old daughter Ellie was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).  She received numerous chemotherapy treatments, endured spinal taps, and made countless trips to the clinic and hospital in two and a half years of treatment.  During this time, she kept her sunny outlook, and her positive attitude provided us with strength and inspiration.  She is doing well and has a very good prognosis thanks to the great advancements made in the treatment of her disease.  Advancements supported and funded in part through organizations like the St. Baldrick's Foundation.  Ellie is now in the 8th grade and is preparing for high school.  She is active with dancing and plays several sports at her school.  At home, she enjoys helping Mommy and Daddy chase after two little sisters.
