When Michael was 20 months old, he became fussy and seemed to be sick constantly. Pain medication, blood draws and an MRI, but no sign of what was making Michael so sick.
Then, a team of doctors entered my baby’s room and said Michael has acute myeloid leukemia (AML). I have no words for this day.
Simply put, our world shattered.
Sadly, our story is not unique. Every year, there are so many families like ours—struggling to save their child’s life.
As a mother, nothing is more important than knowing I have done EVERYTHING in my power to save my child’s life. And while I did not know it in those darkest moments, I was supported by YOU.
You can continue to be part of making change happen for kids with cancer by making your donation today.
Michelle, Michael’s mom.
