My daughter, Louisa, is 2 years old. She has high risk acute myeloid leukemia. We are from Anchorage, AK. Louisa was diagnosed in June 2019. She was life-flighted out of state for treatment immediately following diagnosis.
Louisa had a bone marrow transplant in September 2019. Her oldest sister, Alma, was her bone marrow donor. We had a happy holiday and, on New Year’s Day, we were making arrangements to return home to Alaska.
We found out on January 10th that Louisa relapsed. She is currently in a precarious position. We are pushing to get her into a clinical trial.
Louisa is so silly and funny. She loves her sisters fiercely. She loves music and dancing. She loves animals, especially dogs. She loves being outdoors. We love her more than words could ever do justice.
