CCN’s March 10th Run to Fight Cancer Hero is Lily!
It was Thanksgiving 2016 when John and Lindsey got the shocking diagnosis that their 2-year-old daughter Lily had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), the most common form of cancer in children. Lily’s journey would involve three years (at least) of check-ups and medicines and procedures. She has been quite the trouper, enduring poking, prodding and frequent hospital stays, never complaining or crying — not even once — along the way. Instead, she is living life with a gusto — riding her pink scooter around the yard, painting her fingernails (blue is her go-to fashion color) and enjoying Disney movie marathons. She loves school, her friends and challenging herself to 50-piece puzzles. On most days, she loves being the big sister to 18-month-old Lincoln, too. Lily’s story is a lesson in how to approach the unknown while living life to the fullest. Her story undoubtedly provides a ray of hope to so many families in our community who are facing similar challenges.To learn more information about the Run to Fight Children’s Cancer go to runtofightcancer.com
