My Story

On February 21, 2015, five year old, Liliana was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) and a rare subtype called Philadelphia Chromosome Positive (Ph+). This type of Leukemia is very uncommon in children and classifies Liliana as high risk. Liliana's life changed immediately as she was pulled from happily attending kindergarten in Oak Lawn to spending all of her time in and out of the hospital undergoing extensive chemotherapy treatment, painful procedures, and isolation.
