My Story

Sarah was diagnosed with leukemia (A.L.L.) in March 2009 at the age of 5. Sarah’s cancer treatment lasted for 28 months – she took her final dose of chemo in 2011 when she was 7 years old. The 2 years of chemo Sarah endured were intense, grueling, and inflicted significant damage to her body – cancer and its treatment were completely devastating to Sarah and our family.
Recovery was not always smooth and uneventful. Like many childhood cancer survivors Sarah struggled with after-effects from her chemo, some of which lasted years after treatment was completed. Life after treatment was a long and frequently hard road for her - especially during the first 2 years after chemo ended. But eventually, recovery did come.
Today, Sarah is an active, thriving 13 year old who is in 7th Grade. Sarah enthusiastically lives her life, and has a knack for bringing positivity and joy to those around her.  This past July, Sarah reached the 5th anniversary of completing her cancer treatment – that is the date that her doctors officially classified her leukemia as being CURED! There are no adequate words to express the gratitude we feel to have reached this milestone and to have her here with us. We are so incredibly lucky.
