My Story

Zoe is a precious fun loving four year old. She loved to play out in the yard all day long, then during Christmas week of 2005 all she wanted to do was nap all day. We took her to the pediatrician thinking she was coming down with the flu and were hit with the bombshell. Zoe's treatment is going well, she has been in remission since week two after being diagnosed. She loves to go to school and play with friends along with spending time outside and feeding her pet dogs and ducks. When her immune system is high there are no limits to what we allow!
