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.

Not so fun morning...

Poor Mimi. I think we have all been spoiled by the normal phase last month. That ended, we will be looking to find another new normal during the next 8 weeks.

This morning I heard Mimi's little feet running to me trying to find a bucket, and again after her self made yellow scrambled EGGIEZ breakfast. She asked for a bath and was a little better for the rest of the day, but definetly very emotional. The steroids are kicking in.


  1. Oh, hang in there for DI. Is she doing the 7 days on, 7 off, 7 on steroid pulse? That was a tough one. We just crossed off the days until it was over.

    I've lost your address, but Mollie made something for Mimi. If you e mail me at sarahdmertz at yahoo dot com we'll get it in the mail ASAP.

    Wishing you the best!

  2. Yes we are on the first 7 day pulse, looking at the clendar for this phase is like a rainbow of meds, each one is written in a different color.

    I have e mailed you our address :) Thank you!
