At age 2, Callie started having trouble walking after a fall in early November. After seeing a pediatric orthopedist for weeks and then a pediatric neurologist for an MRI of her brain and spine, we finally got an answer in January as to what was going on with our little girl.
An x-ray of her right leg and blood work showed that Callie has acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Fortunately, after a month of intense chemotherapy, she was in remission. Callie still makes weekly trips to the hospital for her chemo treatments. She has been in physical rehab three times a week to regain the ability to walk on her own.
She keeps getting better and stronger each day! We can’t wait to be walking in the Light The Night walk this year in Chicago!
