acute lymphoblastic leukemia survivor
in remission since: 1997
Sadie was only two-years-old when she started having severe fevers. After a week her symptoms minimized, until one morning when she woke up with the side of her face completely swollen. Her parents rushed her to the hospital, where a blood test was immediately ordered. The results showed that she had no red blood cells. Sadie needed a blood transfusion within the hour or she wouldn't make it through the night.
