Anna’s Journey to the Cure.
Nine year old Anna Rose was hospitalized and diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia on March 29th, 2011, at Hope Children’s Hospital in Oak Lawn. She began her treatment on March 30th in the pediatric ICU where she had many treatments which included surgeries to install ports for apheresis, numerous rounds of several different chemotherapies, bone marrow aspirations, spinal taps with chemotherapy, cranial radiation, and several transfusions of sort. The standard treatment for this disease is 2 ½ years, that is without complication and bone marrow transplant. Anna’s bone marrow failed the first stage of treatment and will be retested at Day 90. We are hoping for remission at this point so she can stay on the prescribed treatment until September 2013. A transplant will extend the length of treatment. She is facing unimaginable hardships. Kids and cancer should never be in the same sentence! At her side are her parents Alan, and Laura, and sisters Rebecca, Melanie and Abigail.With the downturn in insurance benefits, countless outpatient visits to the hospital, the harsh reality is an outrageous out of pocket expense. Mix in the loss of income for the 24/7 care of Anna and the result is a mounting financial, physical and emotional burden no one should have to endure.Please attend and/or strongly consider donating merchandise, services to give at the benefit, and/or gift cards for food and gas.
