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.

Sad and Happy!

When I give Mimi her nightly chemo pill, I wake her up sit her on my lap she opens her mouth takes a sip of water and goes to sleep. Last night I sat her up and she just started crying and said she did not want to take it, then she asked "How many more days do I have to take this pill?" It broke my heart, it took me over 20 minutes to convince her she needed to take it. The good thing is she did not remember any of it the next day...

We go to clinic tomorrow for counts and hoping for some good ones.

On a happier note, Summer Reading Started at the Library! We went today got our tee shirts and charts, the girls are so excited to fill their leaves for every hour they read. This years theme is GO GREEN!

Cheeze! Notice Iza's brand new missing tooth!


  1. How cute are they?! I love it!

  2. Sweet photo!

    That nightly chemo is rough! I have found a sweetspot for Mollie around 2.5 hours after she goes to sleep she's pretty easy to wake up. Only 2 years...

  3. Thanks Sarah, I remember you mentioned that to me before and it has worked really well just for some reason not yesterday... yeah only 2 years that is a whole lotta days!

  4. Some days are easier than others, aren't they. I love the picture! You have beautiful children.
