On April 5, 2006 at the age of 8 Ali was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She underwent the standard treatment of ALL of 2 years and 2 Months. In this treatment she had to undergo numerous bone marrow biopsies and lumbar punctures to put the chemo directly in her spine. On most nights she had to take upwards of 20 plus pills. Ali was such a strong kid, she never cried until almost 6 days after she was diagnosed and the only reason she did is because they had told her she was going to lose all her hair. She had her last treatment on June 8, 2008, is down to only getting checkups once a year and is doing great. Ali plays high school volleyball and softball, has the longest, thickest hair and is blessed everyday for the people she has around her.
