Sophie Gray
On March 15th, just a month shy of Sophie's first birthday, Jennifer and Jim (Sophie's parents) took her to the doctor for the 4th time over the course of a few weeks. After being told at each visit that Sophie had a "bug", a double-ear infection or she is cranky because of her age, Jim & Jennifer fought for blood work to be done. Sophie was clearly not a thriving infant and Sophie's parent's instincts told them something was wrong. They didn't expect, however, for the diagnosis to be so devastating. Sophie was diagnosed with infant ALL - Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (it is unusual for a child under the age of 1 to have to fight this battle). Acute refers to the relatively short time course of the disease (being fatal in as little as a few weeks if left untreated). FULL STORY
