Today’s Tale of September: Emily, 11, Pre B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) “Emily was diagnosed on 02/21/2014. She had very little symptoms, she was tired and pale with nose bleeds, which she had been to the doctor for a few times. Finally we went back and asked for blood work, the rest was a blur. Within 24 hours, we were told our child had cancer. So many medical terms and procedures, and 2 weeks in the hospital and we went home! Within 24 hours we were back, but not for emily. I (mom) was pregnant at the time, I was admitted for severe preeclampsia at 28 weeks. I was transferred to All Children's since that was where Emily was being treated. Three weeks later, I had Emily’s baby sister, and Emily was admitted again. For a few weeks, I had two children on different floors, then Emily was released, and spent many days and nights in the NICU with her sister. Her other sister Cammi spent a lot of time with grandma. Emily completed treatment on 4/28/2016. Emily enjoys reading, crafts, and exploring caves. The Children’s Cancer Center means so much more than I can put into words. It has been our safe haven. A place where our children can play with no concerns, they are not treated differently, they're all just kids. Not "the kid with cancer" and "the normal kids”, just kids. It's a place parents can talk to each other without being judged, we cry, we laugh, we get angry, and it's all accepted. Without the CCC, our treatment would have seemed to last forever.” – Emily’s Family Every day during the month of September, the Children’s Cancer Center will feature the tale of one of the 1,000+ families we serve. We hope that you join us in supporting these families; your donation will allow us to continue to provide immediate support for these families.

Today’s Tale of September: Nick, 7 at time of diagnosis, Supratentorial Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumors “In the late morning in May of 2011, Nick started to experience headaches, which later led to him being sick. We took him to his pediatrician who told us, "don't freak out, but I think it may be a brain tumor." We were given a prescription for an MRI, but it was during Memorial Day weekend and his symptoms got worse over the next 2 days so we took him to the ER for an emergency MRI. The MRI showed a mass 5cm in circumference, with lots of bleeding around it. Nick was transferred to All Children's Hospital where he had his first craniotomy the following day. A month after surgery, Nick under went 6 weeks of radiation to his brain and spine. During this time, he stopped eating, which we were warned most likely would happen. He had a feeding tube placed which provided 100% of his nutrition. After radiation, he had 6 months of chemotherapy. He finished his initial treatment March 2012. We were told that his prognosis for 5 year survival was 50%. Every 3 months, Nick would have an MRI to monitor for potential relapse. December 2012 Nick's MRI showed an enhanced area that was believed to be reoccurrence. He had a second craniotomy Jan 2013. The biopsy confirmed that his cancer had indeed returned. The statistics for relapsed PNET, quite frankly, sucks. Over 90% of children pass within a year of relapse. Nick had additional radiation to the area of relapse and was enrolled in a phase 1 clinical trial. Despite being in treatment, he enjoyed a high quality of life and was very active. During summer of 2014, Nick developed an unknown form of autoimmune hemolytic anemia. It will never be known if his treatment caused this or not. After enduring several months of frequent blood transfusions, Nick's medical team agreed that a new approach was needed. Nick had clear MRI scans for 23 months, which is incredibly rare for relapsed PNET. The plan was to stop the trial, then star

Today’s Tale of September: Alexander, 5, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) with a Philadelphia-like Chromosome “Our journey started with a very high fever that did not respond to Motrin and Tylenol. On March 2, 2014, we went to the strawberry festival and I noticed that Alexander was not himself. We went home, I checked his temp and it was around 101. I gave him another dose of Tylenol. Once again, the temperature went down but later came back up. The next morning, he was seen by his primary care physician. She did the preliminary test and blood work. Everything came back normal. That afternoon he spiked a 103 temperature. I took him back to his pcp and she did some additional lab work. She sent me home and said that she will call me as soon as they get the results back. Later that afternoon, she called me and told me to go to St. Joseph Children's Hospital for some additional lab work because the results showed that everything was fine. At St. Joseph's Emergency Room, they ran all types of test and drew blood, and checked his spine. Everything came back normal. At this point he was still running a high temperature. Around midnight, the doctors eventually, checked his white blood cells and found that the number of white blood was really high. Upon further review of the white blood cell, it was their opinion that Alexander may have leukemia. The specialist came to our room that night and explained what was going on and said that Alexander had to be admitted that night. I believe a biopsy was done on the 9th to confirm that he indeed had cancer. The following months we were learning how to adjust and trying different things that worked best for our family. At the time Alexander was diagnosed, Xavier was only three years old and I was pregnant with Xachariah. My husband worked in Lakeland and I was an associate attorney working for two firms part-time so it was a lot. Christmas of 2014, the Children’s Cancer Center gave us three large bags of Christmas gifts

Today’s Tale of September: Michael, 7, High Risk Leukemia "Michael was diagnosed with High risk Leukemia at 3 1/2 years old. He was having leg pain that progressed to sever stomach pain which upon blood work and a bone marrow biopsy, was found to be leukemia. As you can imagine, our family was devastated. Throughout all of his hospital stays and treatments, Michael was a true hero. We are forever changed. We have met the most amazing fellow cancer fighting family's who have become our family! Michael loves the Children's Cancer Center because before we found them, he had no friends to relate to him. He was very sad and angry because none of his kindergarten friends knew what cancer was. He couldn't understand why nobody knew what a gold ribbon meant or what chemo was. Being a part of The Children's Cancer Center was a Blessing for him!! Finally kids with no hair just like him! Finally other kids who took 10 chemo pills at night just like him! Finally other kids who know what it was like to get poked with a Giant Needle in his chest. His favorite thing at the Children's Cancer Center is doing crafts! It always helps him take his mind off of treatment when he does crafts there. He also Loves the Volunteers! They push him on the swings and play basketball with him! We are forever Grateful for being part of the Children's Cancer Center. There aren't enough words to thank them for what they have brought to our family! Michael is now 7 and after 3 1/2 years of Chemo he has Finished treatment for Leukemia!" - Michael's family Every day during the month of September, the Children’s Cancer Center will feature the tale of one of the 1,000+ families we serve.

Today’s Tale of September: Redawnay, 16, Sickle Cell Anemia SS “Redawnay was born with sickle cell anemia and endured her first crisis at the age of 6. She since then has had a crisis every year after that and began blood transfusions for a high risk of stroke at the age of 12. She also received a bone marrow transplant. Redawnay loves reading, writing, listening to music, and blogging on Instagram in her spare time! For our family, the Children’s Cancer Center means working together positively with others and bringing families together that are going through medical adversity. Redawnay loves the CCC, she said “it has created many great memories for me, I love being able to socialize with people who have sickle cell and helping them. It also takes my mind off of my illness.” – Redawnay’s Family Every day during the month of September, the Children’s Cancer Center will feature the tale of one of the 1,000+ families we serve.
