On August 26, 2016, our 3 year old little girl, Madeline ("Maddi"), was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). After the initial phase of treatment, a bone marrow biopsy revealed that she still had traces of leukemia (MRD positive) and so she was classified as very high risk. Despite another phase of chemotherapy, we were still unable to eliminate all traces of leukemia and so we had to move forward with a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, just 6 months after her transplant, Maddi relapsed.
Now we are preparing to move forward with immunotherapy treatment in Philadelphia and are very hopeful that this new treatment will be Maddi’s cure.
