My Story

I was 3 yr when I was dianoised with leukemia . Given 2 weeks to live my parents took me to Ellis Hospital, St Clairs turned us down. We took an experimental drug and said a lot of prayers, not knowing what was going to happen. I was put on chemo & radiation & lost all my hair. It was a lot to go through. The outcome was totally worth it. I am now 36 years old and have two beautiful girls. Love every day to the max. Always have a smile on my face . It was difficult time to go through, but Im here now.
