Childhood Cancer

Childhood Leukemia


“We are all in the same boat, in a stormy sea, and we owe each other a terrible loyalty.”

— G. K. Chesterton

MY LIFE ABRUPTLY CHANGED on Valentine’s Day, 1992, when my 3-year-old daughter was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (high risk). At the time, I was the full-time mother of two young daughters. I understand that nothing prepares a parent for the utter devastation of having a child diagnosed with cancer. My family has walked the path from that life-changing moment through information gathering, treatment, and survivorship. We know that fear and worry are lessened by having accurate information and through hearing the stories of other children and families who have walked the path before us. We are honored to share with you what hundreds of parents and healthcare providers have learned to try to ease your journey down this hard road.
