My Story

Vana is a fun-loving girl whose life was changed on April 19, 2011, two days after her 5th birthday. Diagnosed with ALL, she finished treatment on July 28, 2013. Vana has been an inspiration to all of us. She handled her treatment with grace and courage. She falls into the low/standard risk category so our prayer is that she will go on to live an extraordinary life.
