My Story

Allie was our 2nd beautiful baby girl, by hospital standards she was a very healthy little girl. Allie always had allot of spunk, and determination. Allie needed those qualities because she was in for the fights of her life; I never seen strength like I've seen in my daughter and the other kids that this horrible disease made their little bodies it's home. Allie was diagnosed with Alveolor Rhabdomyosarcoma at the age of 18months and had to endure a year of chemo, radiation and countless surgeries and hospital stays. She was so sick and frail during the treatment, I see now why people say kids are so resilient. Allie was just starting to look like a healthy little girl when that ugly disease decided to invade her little body again' Well as anyone knows any relapsed cancer of the same kind after only 7 months in remission is not good, not good at all. My little girl who just turned 3 has to go through this horrible disease again;on top of the treatment that will be much stronger and intense. Well Allie fought that cancer and beat it, she shows some scars from that fight but who cares. Allie and her sister Victoria, are the bravest, loving, caring and compassionate little girls you would ever want to meet. I know that both of my girls know Allie had cancer but as far as remembering the pain and suffering that both of my girls had to endure during this time I don't think they remember how tough it was on them. I thank the Lord that they don't remember all of that pain. Both girls are HAPPY, HEALTHY little girls who love spending time with their friends and family who they adore.
