CCN’s February 10th Run to Fight Cancer Hero is Allie!
Allie is a smiling, cute, 4 year old girl. At the age of 10 months she was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia. At that time she started daily chemo treatments and had weekly follow ups and bone marrow biopsies. She received a bone marrow transplant in April of 2017, with her baby brother donating his bone marrow for the transplant. The super hero power she would love to have is to be able to fly and fly fast! This would help her to go anywhere at any time. Someday she would like to become a kid doctor, fly in an airplane, ride a horse and have a dog as a pet. Her advice to other cancer survivors is to enjoy every day and that it is OK to ask for help. Your family is always there for you. To find out more about the Run to Fight Children’s Cancer go to runtofightcancer.com
