My Story

Sierra was a beautiful little girl with Down Syndrome. Children with Down Syndrome have a 10% higher rate of developing Leukemia than a typical child. Sierra had a very sweet personality and was a very brave little girl. Despite all the medical procedures she had to endure, she never fought the doctors and nurses. As a matter of fact, she loved them all very dearly and looked forward to seeing them. Sierra loved music, singing & dancing. Sierra loved spending time at her grandmother's house and loves her dog, Rocco. Sierra also loved to eat, especially McDonalds (her restaurant of choice). There was not much that Sierra disliked, if anything it would have been brushing her teeth (which she had to do anyway). Sierra entered her Heavenly home on 5/3/08. We will miss you, forever but we WILL see you soon. We love you, Sierra!
