Our mother, Katherine Tijerina, was very recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, which is a form of cancer that affects the bone marrow cells. Doctors surmise that the previous treatment she received to overcome her battle with Lymphoma may have contributed to the alteration of a gene that in turn made her more susceptible to this form of Leukemia.

We’re creating this site to keep everyone as updated as possible on her treatment and progress. A tough road lies ahead, but she’s a fighter and we know she’ll give it all she’s got! We invite you to leave comments, thoughts and prayers by clicking on the “Well Wishes” tab on the far right.
