My Story

In February of 2008 my daughter Hannah was diagnosed with AML, a rare an aggressive form of leukemia, especially in small children. Hannah’s little world turned upside down as we spent months in the hospital without taking a break to go home, without leaving oncology unit, and sometimes without leaving the hospital room for days on end, because she was so sick throughout chemotherapy. Even though she was very sick at times, there were days you couldn't tell she was a child with cancer, except her little bald head, the feeding tube coming out of her nose and her central line coming out of her chest kind of gave it away. She stayed resilient throughout her 5 rounds of chemotherapy, and was able to return home for good a few weeks after her 1st birthday! I am happy to report Hannah is now 3 1/2 and remains in remission to this day, but there is not one single day that goes by where I don't think about that monster that once was, and I am thankful and blessed for every day I get to spend with her!
