My Story

Leilani was a typical 4 year old, active, happy and healthy. She started complaining of back pain and having fevers that were unexplained. We had no idea these symptoms would then lead us to a diagnoses of Leukemia. All this in the middle of a family move to another home! Leilani had a few short term stays in the hospital in the beginning of treatment, while at home her stuff was getting shipped and moved to Hawaii. After lots of blood transfusions and chemo and tests Leilani was on the course of becoming cancer free. After the month mark Leilani was Cancer Free and moved into the next phase of treatment. Her Dad moved to Hawaii first to find a home while Leilani lived in a hotel with her Mom, Aunt and siblings. This was an interesting time, but Leilani continued to regain muscle loss and grow healthier. When it was safe to fly Leilani made the trek across the pacific ocean with her Mom and siblings to be with her Dad in Hawaii. The fresh air and sunny skies of Hawaii have been great for Leilani and her treatment. She is now in the maintenance phase of treatment and is still Cancer Free!! She has only had a few hiccups throughout her treatment and is continuing to grow and thrive. She looks forward to being free from chemo but for now she makes the most of treatment with a smile on her face!
