Help baby Zoe Fight Cancer

More Info

On April 23rd 2020, our world was turned upside down. My sweet, loving 1-year-old niece, Zoe, was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. Zoe went from a happy, loving baby to one constantly in pain and crying. After endless doctor visits for over a month, we were given the news that would be any parent's worst nightmare. Not only is Zoe's case one-of-a-kind but it comes in the midst of a global pandemic, making it impossible for her Dad and family members to be present.Zoey's official diagnosis is Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) with a 9;22 translocation mutation presenting in blast crisis, meaning a large percentage of her cancerous blood cells are also growing as a second type of Leukemia, the much more aggressive Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). Besides the already very rare nature of pediatric cancer, CML is estimated to be 1-in-a-million of all pediatric leukemia cases that do happen, let alone the extremely unfortunate occurrence of Zoe’s cancer transforming into a second type. Simply put, successfully diagnosing and treating the probably unprecedented nature of Zoe’s cancer will be an especially complicated and uphill battle, even among childhood leukemia cases.
