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.

Walk with a Monkey!

This year Mimi was chosen to be the ambassador for the Six Flags "A Walk in the Park" Fundraiser.

All proceeds from the walk will benefit Children's Miracle Network Hospitals which Baystate Children's Hospital is a part of. Every dollar donated will go directly to your local Children’s Miracle Network hospital to support research and training, purchase equipment, pay for uncompensated care and more; all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible. Fundraising will help support things like research, pediatric education training programs, cutting-edge equipment, and uncompensated care for families right in your backyard.

We will be walking in support of Mimi who has been a brave little monkey just going with the flow of whatever she is asked to do as far as treatments and medicines go, never asking why. Iza and Magi who are Super Sibs and help out when Mimi is not feeling great or is in the hospital. This year the girls' friend Adrianna will be walking with us, we will celebrate her bravery and recovery.
