Out of 3 daughters Mimi is our middle child, older sister Iza by 3 minutes and a younger sister Magi by 3 years. Mimi was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on August 12, 2009. After 2 years, 2 months and 26 days on November 6th, 2011 she took her last chemo pill and is considered OFF Treatment! This is our story of our journey through childhood cancer.

Friday, August 28th 2009

Eighteen days ago our life has been changed forever... While at the drive-thru at Dunkin Dounuts getting two iced french vanillas with cream and sugar I answered the phone from an RN that I saw a couple of hours before.

"We got her blood results... the hospital has a room ready please bring her as soon as you can... I am so sorry..."

My heart has never raced so fast or pounded that hard. I took the three hot coffees and random three munchkins from the DD teenage worker and rushed to the hospital after making sure it it was okay that I leave Magi. Mimi needed Iza with her.

Two hours after entering the front doors of the hospital we were being told that our four year old daughter might have Leukemia. The only way to find out for sure would require a bone marrow biopsy.

On August 12th we were called into a room with all the doctors and nurses who we have seen for the last two days.

Diagnosis was confirmed Mimi has Leukemia (ALL)


Leaving after 10 days in the hospital.
