"Kristen was a perfectly healthy child who barely ever got sick. In March of 2007 she was diagnosed with leukemia. This meant that for 27 months she would have to endure chemotherapy everyday. Many days and nights were spent in the hospital during this time. The first eight months of treatment were the most difficult. Some of the medicines caused her hair to fall out but it came back even prettier than before. She was very brave throughout the entire journey and is perfectly healthy today. She is seven years old and in the 2nd grade. She loves to sing, dance, tumble and cheer. We are very proud of her and grateful for her health."
