My Story

Alannah came home from school one day complaining about upper leg pain, and her stomach hurt a lot. The underneath of her eyes became dark no matter how much sleep she got. She ran a low grade fever for days and became anemic.She was very tired and wasn't her normal self. I brought her to three different doctors and finally the third did a special blood test, and they sent her to Children's Hospital who ran more tests and told us she has Stage 4 Neuroblastoma Cancer. Alannah went to Childrens in Minneapolis on August 1st 2012 and was diagnosed on August 3rd 2012.
