My Story

Scarlett was diagnosed with ALL  leukemia on October 23rd 2013. She was very healthy prior to diagnosis and we caught it very early with very few symptoms. Scarlett qualified for a low risk clinical trail with the COG a world wide children's cancer research group. That is partially funded by St. Baldricks.  She front loaded her treatment with 7 rounds of high dose methotrexate in patient over 6 months. She then went into consolidation and maintenance treatment for another two and a half years. Which consisted of daily oral chemotherapy, monthly out patient chemotherapy, spinal taps, lumbar punctures and intrathecal chemotherapy, and high dose steroids. But because of the clinical trail she was able to skip delayed intensification. Which is very hard on most children. I am grateful for the advances in medicine that have saved Scarlett. And hope that there will be more advances so other families can have happy outcomes.  Scarlett is happy and healthy right now. And could not be more happy to be done with treatment. She only goes once every three months now for screenings.
