My Story

Cyanna is a 9 year old who has been through it all. She was diagonosed with A.L.L (ACUTE LYMPHOBLASTIC LUKEMIA T-CELL) back when she was five (2-16-06) which later to follow she developed a fungal infection in her port (WHICH IS CALLED MUCORMICOSIS FUNGAL INFECTION, NO-ONE HAS EVER SURVIVED IT ACCORDING TO MILWAUKEES CHILDRENS)which spread to her heart. After 2 major heart surgeries one worse than the other and doctors telling us she was not to survive but she did (my little miracle child} left us knocking on the good lords door again, cyanna than developed some infection in her lungs which cause her to under go surgery and have a large amount of lungs removed from her body, and again she struggled and fought and showed us she could do it. Cyanna gradually got better where she was in remission, her heart valve that was reconstructed took to her body, her lungs have adjusted to her life and her hair grew back to gave us another set back. About 3 weeks ago cyanna relasped with less than 5 months left of chemo. Cyannas lukemia came back into her spine and traveled into her brain which caused (cj) to loose her memory a bit and her legs wouldnt work. So now of course we had to get a wheel chair for long distances, put a hsp bed into her room to help her control her head level due to constant coughing and back to every week of hard chemo and spinial taps and i tell ya, to watch the pain and suffering she goes through everyday just breaks my heart. Now that cyanna relasped she now has to under go a bone marrow transfussion which we all were tested and unable to match her with her only having one full sibling. Her father and i are a half match but not full so now we have to find a donor. So as of our situation with my daughter its all a waiting game and hopfully soon we can come to an end of this suffering so she can move on into her life and begin a normal life as a family. Cyanna will never be able to run the marathon, or play certain sports or do things that other children can do but its her will power and strength that has gotton her this far. Cyanna is my miracle from god and it was my father that gave her life back for he gave up his so the good lord wouldn't take his granddaughter(thankyou dad). Our fight is not over until cyanna says it is over but we will be here every step of the way to get her through this tragic part of her life... I love you cyanna jane goessl!
