My Story

Anna was a happy, energetic girl who loved her family, friends and teachers. She loved princesses, dancing and playing outside. Anna was generous and always thought of others, even from a very young age. She was a very special daughter, friend, and big sister. Anna loved to laugh and be silly. When Anna was 4 years old, she was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She endured many treatments, including a bone marrow transplant. Anna never complained or felt sorry for herself. She found joy in each day and always faced her challenges with a smile on her face. Her cancer was too aggressive, and she died in January, 2010, at the age of five. Anna's fight has been an inspiration to so many people. We are so proud of her and miss her so much.
