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.

Almost there ....

Counting down ...

Yesterday Phoebe received her last dose of vincristine, hopefully forever. Her second last dose of methotrexate, hopefully forever, and we started our last five day course of steroids. Hopefully forever.

March 21st we will have one more dose of IV methotrexate and then we are finished with this year or maintenance chemo and hopefully finished with all things cancer and chemo for a lifetime.

Phoebe is looking forward to ringing the end of treatment bell, eating cake, and we are looking forward to moving on and away from cancer.

It has been 15 months since Phoebe's last relapse and each day that we have with Phoebe and without this horrible cancer, is a gift. Watching her in action, playing with Mae and thriving, is just amazing and we look forward to many more amazing days.

Go Phoebe go.

Here is Phoebe on her way to her very first Gala. The Amazing People Gala. Thank-you all for voting for our amazing person. She was in the top ten and among many incredible and very inspiring people in her community.
