Darling and spunky, 9 year old Brianne was diagnosed on April 26, 2012, with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia after she had a sore throat that just wouldn’t go away; they tested her for mononucleosis and the bloodwork showed something far more worse…ALL.

Brianne is now in 4th grade at American Leadership Academy and best of all… CANCER FREE!!! She had her end of treatment party in July 2014! Instead of gifts for herself, she requested that each guest bring a toy to be donated to the toy/craft closet at the outpatient clinic. Keeping life as normal as possible and having a support system of family and friends has given her the motivation to get through her treatment!
