My Story

Our journey with leukemia began on 6/6/2013. We took Chloe to the ER for a reoccurring fever, low blood iron, and yellowing of the skin. They did a blood test and told us that her hemoglobin, hemocrit, and platelet counts were all very low, and that she would have to be transferred to the Levine Children's hospital for a blood transfusion and to find out why the levels had dropped in the first place. Within the first 1/2 hour of arriving at Levine's, a doctor sat down with us and told us that there were a few more test results waiting to come back, but that Chloe has leukemia. I called family and friends and let them know, and we waited for morning to find out the rest of the results. In the morning we found out that Chloe has B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL). This is what we wanted to hear at this point, because B-ALL has the highest survival rate and the least chance of coming back after remission. In September 2013 we moved back to NY and Chloe has been treated by the amazing staff at the Melodies Center in Albany Medical Center, and has handled treatment wonderfully.
