“Just 3 days after covering the "UGA Miracle-Dance Marathon" on February 22nd out youngest daughter was having difficulty breathing, and was taken to St. Mary's in Athens GA. They diagnosed her with pneumonia, and sent us home. Just hours later her health declined rapidly, and we found ourselves back in the hospital. After further testing the saw a large mass pushing on her heart, which caused it to swelling, and it moved her esophagus. They said she needed to be transported to CHOA in ATL, and while we waited her face became paralyzed. She was rush in an ambulance to Scottish Rite- Children's Hospital of ATL to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit where she was in critical care and was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia T-ALL.”
