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.

Hope restored

We have hope and a plan.

Thank-you to our wonderful team of doctors, both near and far, for doing all that they can for Phoebe. They put their heads together after learning of the news from Philadelphia this morning and it would seem that all hope is not lost. There is another option, and it is at St.Jude.

This new study ironically reopened today and will use donor Natural Killer cells. It is different from the NK trial that Phoebe has already had at St.Jude as these cells will be modified. It is still new and we haven't yet spoken with the doctors there so we don't have a lot of information, but it is promising and it is likely that Phoebe will be eligible. We could be going back to Memphis as early as next week.

We are relieved and hopeful and just so thankful for these wonderful doctors.
