My Story

One day I picked Elijah up from preschool and his teacher said they had noticed that Elijah was really pale. Over the next several days we kept an eye on him to see if he was coming down with something or if he needed more iron in his diet. Elijah continued to go on bike rides, go to swimming lessons and to play with his friends but we went to the doctor to see why he was pale. Our world was forever changed that day when we were told Elijah had leukemia. Elijah is a strong little boy and through out treatment, he still is a normal four year old. He could spend all morning getting chemo and come home and immediately run outside to ride his tricycle or chase his little sister. We have been very fortunate that Elijah has responded so well to treatment and that for him having cancer treatment is a very small aspect of his life. Elijah doesn't know the worry and fears that his parents live with as he battles cancer, and we hope he never has to.
