My Story

On Valentine's Day, 2012, Nory Mae Hearron was surrounded by love as she struggled with her first dose of chemotherapy. She was diagnosed with CML (Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia) hours before. Nory Mae has received blood transfusions, undergone countless bone marrow biopsies, a spinal tap, been poked and prodded hundreds of times, and has struggled with large motor skills because of medication side-effects and weeks of bed-rest. Just weeks earlier, Nory was enjoying time with her friends at a mother's day out. She started a gymnastics class. She attended every football, basketball, & baseball game her big brothers participated in. And she spent every Friday morning at the local library for story time. She was a healthy, active toddler. Over the course of several weeks, her giggles slowly waned. She stopped singing and dancing. She stopped wanting to do anything. On February 9th, Nory Mae was admitted to the hospital for a myriad of tests and treatment for pneumonia. Five days later, she received her diagnosis. She spent the next 3 weeks in the hospital undergoing more tests and treatment. Nory Mae has achieved a "major molecular remission" and is now continuing her treatment at home. She takes oral chemotherapy that suppresses the cancerous cells from multiplying. CML typically afflicts much older patients (60+), so the long-term effectiveness of the treatment for a child of her age is speculative. At some point it is likely that she will require a bone marrow transplant. What a gift it would be for researchers to find a cure for CML before we have to make that difficult decision for our daughter! In the meantime, we are taking life with cancer one day at a time, enjoying every smile & giggle to the fullest.
