Nikki

Leukemia Survivor

White Plains, NY

If you were to sit down with Nikki Henshaw, you'd find out she has a full and blessed life. She has a supportive husband, two beautiful children, and just started her own part-time business so she can be a stay-at-home mom. But in 1994 she found out that she had acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a diagnosis no 14-year-old wants to hear. While she did go into remission only a month later, she still had to undergo intense treatments for the next three years. As a result of her treatment, she had many challenging side effects. To say that the experience was equally exhausting and profound for her would be an understatement. "I have seen the progress in cure rates and treatments." Nikki Henshaw - Leukemia Survivor
