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.

Sometimes it is JUST a Marker.

Around midnight I went to give Mimi her nightly chemo pill and as I was getting her on to my lap I noticed the palms her hands were dark, and she had blotches on her arms. I panicked a little, turned on the lights, usually I just use my phone as a flash light to give her her pill. It looked very odd, redish and blotchy. I brought her to the bathroom and washed it all off with soap and water.


So last night the Onc On-Call did not get a call from us and the Childhood Leukemia book stayed on the shelf unopened.


  1. This made me laugh because it is so true! Sometimes it really IS just a marker!
