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.

We "HEART" Fall

Such a great time of the year (of course second to summer), there is so much to do!

Pumpkin picking, decorating, hay rides, apple cider doughnuts, Halloween parties, harvest festivals, picking leaves... the list goes on and on. I feel since we missed out on the last month of the summer we are making up for it in the fall.

Right now Mimi is feeling pretty good, she is not on any daily pills except the antibiotics three times a week. She woke up Saturday morning and said "Mommy did you give me my pill last night??? I don't remember taking a pill? Did you forget?" I assured her she did not have to take it, once she made sure I was sure, she was happy that I won't have to wake her up anymore, for a little while anyway.
This past weekend we had a Halloween Party at a bowling alley, the clinic had the whole place rented in Mimi's words "A Party for all the kids who HAVE to go to the clinic and their families". Iza was Dorothy, Mimi was Diamond Castle Barbie Princess, Magi was a Fairy.
It was such a great time, bowling was fun although the whole turn taking thing went out the window, arcade games were a hit although the girls finally realized that you can't just pretend to play on those you really need money, and best of all they decorated cookies can we all say SUGAR RUSH!!!
