On October 26th, 2010, at 9 weeks old, Phoebe Rose was diagnosed with high risk MLL + Infantile Leukemia. On November 18th 2015 , she took her last breath. This is her story of hope and love in the face of cancer and despair. Phoebe always brought the joy and continues to inspire us to make a difference. It is best read from the beginning. Thank-you for visiting.

On Saturday, a group of people joined forces at the Lebert Fitness Nation in Missisauga in honour of Phoebe Rose. The event was a charity bootcamp, organized by the wonderful Garry McLachlan and hosted by the owner of the Lebert Fitness Nation, Marc Lebert. Jon and Mae together with these wonderful folks worked up a sweat and kicked some serious butt on Phoebe's behalf.
I have often said throughout this journey that the kindness of friends and strangers has been abundant and wonderful. The love and positive energy that has been sent to us and Phoebe from old and new friends, both near and far has made the past 8 months of Phoebe's treatment that much easier. Knowing that many are thinking and praying for us and willing Phoebe to get better has given us strength at times when being strong has seemed impossible.
A big thank-you from Jon, Mae, Phoebe and I to Garry McLachlan and all of the hard working boot campers for thinking of us and helping to ease our journey. We look forward to telling Phoebe about all of you and this wonderful day when she is older.
