Haleigh has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia...for the 2nd time. This is her story...she is 24 years old...she was her nephews nanny. She has 2 older brothers and a sister-in-law...grandparents...her dad and stepmom...and lots of people who love her. And me...her mom...unfortunately I am living in Illinois...and she is living in Washington State. This is our second journey...we are not newbies...she knows what we're getting into...the biggest difference this time will be the distance between us and a bone marrow transplant after chemotherapy. Welcome to our world...as once again life stops...and she finds a way to beat cancer!! Update...Haleigh beat ALL the 2nd time...she received her Bone Marrow Transplant at UW Hospital but never left. She contracted Graft vs Host Disease from her unrelated donor cells. She succumbed to Legionella and passed away on August 25, 2017. This her story as she was admitted to UW...received her pre-treatment and BMT and after. And how her family and friends been living without her.
