My daughter was 3 years old when she was diagnosed, I was fresh in a career, living life great, but then the Big C was terrible. Nevertheless, she is now 19 and a sophomore in college. We have had a bunch of ups and downs, thousands of pokes, plenty of hospital stays, numerous blood draws, and yucky bone marrow aspirations, and tooo much chemotherapy, but it all helped because she is in remission and doing wonderfully. We did the relay for life with the American Cancer Society for years and raise a lot of money for a great cause. Having a child with this is certainly one of the hardest things I have ever had to deal with, but one night after a stay in the hospital, and i was feeling really alone and scared she came down at the age of 4 and said "mommy Jesus just told me I will be ok" my heart was at ease and the tears became tears of joy. She is my living angel!!!!!
