My Story

I am Lydia

I am a cancer survivor
I was diagnosed with leukemia in Sept 2006
I was only 5
But I was Tough
I had lots of support from Family and Friends

I am 12 (soon to be 13) Now
And Doing Great


I am Lydia

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
