On September 16, 2011 our daughter Grace, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Grace endured two and a half years of treatment consisting of daily oral chemo, another type of chemo once a week, steroids, IV chemo at Phoenix Children's Hospital and many spinal taps, hospital admissions and surgeries. The average treatment for childhood cancer is 2 - 3.5 years but they will not be considered cancer free until they are much older. Childhood cancer is horribly underfunded, only about 3% of federal funding goes toward finding a cure for our kids. The treatments we have are the same treatments they have been using for the past 30 years. The side effects from these treatments are sometimes worse than the disease itself and open the kids up to other types of cancer, learning disabilities, glandular and organ failure later in life.
Children's Cancer Network is there to help families navigate this diagnosis whether financially or with education and support.
