Cecilia is a 4 year old who was recently diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on 9/17/2019. She loves coloring, gymnastics, dress up, princesses, and playing outdoors. When her parents found out about her cancer they were devastated. As her parents, they only wanted the best for their little girl. With the help of friends and family Cecilia was admitted to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC. Since that first week she has received 5 blood transfusions, several spinal taps and bone marrow biopsies. She is going into the third cycle of treatment, which will last for a total of about 2.5 years, going through cycles of varying intensities to ensure all the cancer cells are gone. After that she will have checkups annually for 5 years to be sure she is truly cured. In the mean time she continues to go for treatment at least once a week for chemotherapy, as well as physical and occupational therapies. Some cycle’s added chemo is administered at home.
Jackson is a 5 yrs. Old who was born with a rare genetic neuromuscular disorder called Nemaline Myopathy. Nemaline myopathy (also called rod myopathy or nemaline rod myopathy) is a congenital, hereditary neuromuscular disorder with many symptoms that can occur such as muscle weakness, hypoventilation, swallowing dysfunction, and impaired speech ability
As a baby, he was hospitalized for two months after being deemed failure to thrive. He needed a G-tube and various medical equipment and supplies. Jackson was progressing fairly well but when he was 2 years old, he stopped breathing and had to be intubated and helicoptered to a children’s hospital. He needed a Tracheostomy and spent three months in the hospital. It has been a struggle for Jackson to stay strong and healthy but his persistence and will to do so is remarkable. He has become more resilient every single day.
