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.

In the pediatric cancer world today would be called a CRAPIVERSARY, three years ago today we received Mimi's official diagnosis. In some ways it feels like yesterday, the feeling of complete disbelief, anger, and devastation.  I look at Mimi now and she has grown so much physically and emotionally seems like ages ago that I looked at a tiny four year old about to start a battle with cancer. She kicked it in the butt and is forever stronger!

We have been making up for all of our lost summer days, we have crammed fun into every day, main reason for no updates to the blog. We have had so many great things going on that I will be sure to share! soon...
