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.

Phoebe is back in the hospital. She spiked a fever yesterday afternoon, so she was admitted, blood cultures were taken, and she was started on yet another antibiotic. Her temperature has since come down, and she is still her happy and smiling self, so as long as no source of infection is found and she remains without a fever, she could be returning back home with us as early as tomorrow. If so, this will be the shortest hospital visit in Phoebe's history.
The Interleukin 2 injections that Phoebe receives can produce flu like symptoms, and occasionally fevers, so we are hoping that that is all it is. She has one more injection to receive and then it is all rest, all the time until she starts her pre-transplant conditioning.
