The Day That Changed My Life - The Important Role of Volunteers

In the spirit of the holiday season, we found another fabulous survivor who shares her journey through Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow — its rapid progression affects a group of white blood cells which normally develop into the various types of mature blood cells, such as red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

Brittney shares the challenges she faced and the joys of having the volunteers who came in to cheer the children up. As we prepare to celebrate the holiday season, we think of those who are hospitalized and are unable to join their families at home. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. However, it is great to listen to Brittney's account as we share in her gratitude to the volunteers - Cheers!!!

While each journey is unique, we all share a common theme - cancer changes our lives forever.
