Spotlight On Emilia
Emilia was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on July 15, 2016 at the age of 2 1/2. She spent much of her summer in the hospital admiring the flowers and sunshine from her hospital window. Once home, her schedule has been filled with clinic appointments, blood work, and chemotherapy. She is always asking questions and loves learning about all of her treatments. She finds the vibrant colored chemo very exciting! She’s always looking on the bright side of things. She is finally approaching the end of the front-line of treatment and her family is looking forward to long term maintenance. She will continue with treatment for approximately the next 2 years.
Emilia has always been a free spirited, fun loving and active girl. Beyond the sporadic loss of energy, her free spirit and positive attitude has always remained. She enjoys spending her time playing with friends, soccer, playing dolls, hide and seek, and dancing. She also loves swimming and being outside. Her silly faces and goofy personality are always shining through. She is truly a sweet and thoughtful girl. Emilia has rolled with everything A.L.L. has thrown at her, and never skipped a beat.
On January 16th surrounded by her parents and brother, Molly rang the bell of hope signifying her last chemo treatment at Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong!
On January 31st with her dad by her side, Avery rang the bell of hope signifying her last chemo treatment at Golisano Children’s Hospital at Strong!
