Rachel is 3 years old and is the 4th of 5 children. In addition to ALL, she was blessed with an extra 21st chromosome. Rachel's ALL has taken a significant toll on our family, especially since we have to drive 2 1/2 hours each way for appointments and emergency room visits. Despite her leukemia, she continues to be very joyful and hard working. We have spent more than 4 months in the hospital since her diagnosis at the end of June. The doctors and nurses have become our extended family. We are grateful for the support and prayers of our family and community and could not have gotten this far without it. We are truly blessed! Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
