My Story

Desiree was diagnosed with ALL (leukemia) on February 9, 2007. She is 5 years old and is in kindergarten and just loves it. She loves to color and read. She also loves to go swimming in her Uncle Randy's pool. She enjoys playing outside especially riding her bike. Hanging out with her big brother Dylan is another one of her favorites. She is a beautiful little girl who almost always has a smile on her face, and brings a smile to everyone she meets.
