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.

A local radio station WMAS 94.7 hosted the 10th annual Radiothon to benefit Children's Miracle Network, which our hospital is a part of. Many families were asked to share their stories about their experiences with the Children's Hospital. Some staff members also told inspirational stories. It was hard not to get emotional while listening to the radio station over the three days.

The girls were very excited to be on the radio and had all sorts of things they wanted to say until we were live on air... they were nodding their heads and smiling, not something you can see on the radio. The local news station was also interviewing patients and somehow Mimi and I got on TV. You can view the news clip.

The three day radiothon was a success! 201 thousand dollars was raised and all of it will stay locally.
