I am Lydia
I am a cancer survivorI was diagnosed with leukemia in Sept 2006I was only 5But I was ToughI had lots of support from Family and FriendsI am 10 NowAnd Doing Great
My name is Lydia
I have been sick with Leukemia
I am really no different from you
I like going to the zoo
Reading Winnie the Pooh
And watching Zoboomafoo
You cannot catch Leukemia like the flu
It is something that stays inside of you
I was at school for only 3 days
Now I have been at home learning in my own ways
To make me better the doctors gave me many drugs
That made it easy for me to get sick from little old cold bugs
So until that was over I stayed home safe
At home with my mom keeping the faith
I used to have blond hair
But it fell out from the drugs that made me better
Which really didn’t seem fair
But it will grow back - of that I have no fear
Just like I knew that one day - I would be back here
So be my friend
And we can pretend
That I have been here each day
And then we can have fun and play
