My Story

Alyssa was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at 2 years of age. After chemo, radiation, three stem cell transplants and many hospital stays, she lost her battle on March 9, 2003 at the age of four. Alyssa loved her barbies and loved to dance. She would be getting unhooked from a chemo treatment at home and be at ballet class 1/2 hour later. She danced three days before she died. She rarely complained about all that she had to endure. She is a perfect angel in heaven, walking the streets of gold with her dog Abby who also passed away from cancer in 2009. Abby was her buddy and she was never the same when Alyssa got sick and passed away. We miss you baby. You will always be in our hearts.
