My Story

Karlee had just started first grade and wasn't being her usual self. She began running a fever and it would come and go for a few weeks. After numerous tests and no answers, she became extremely ill. After consulting her pediatrician, it was decided that we would need to take her to Texas Children's Hospital. On October 8, 2009 in the emergency room at Texas Children's Hospital, Karlee was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She instantly began the biggest battle of her life. She took on the challenge of beating leukemia with the maturity of an adult. She was so brave to be battling this monster at the age of six. After two and a half years of intensive chemotherapy, Karlee completed treatment on December 16, 2011. Karlee continues to visit the hospital for frequent checks but she is now a happy and healthy fourth grader. Karlee will always be our Superhero.
