Sydney Belsher was diagnosed on April 26th, 2014 with Infantile Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She was only 6 months old and was given a 35% chance of surviving until her 5th birthday and a 60-70% chance of relapsing. She endured 2 years of intensive chemotherapy that landed her in the hospital for most of that time. She had a feeding tube for 8 months, went through two different ports, had 9 blood infections, and countless GI complications that left her malnourished and fighting for her life more times than we like to admit. We are grateful to say that she is now a healthy 6 year old with very little chemo-related side effects.... for now. We continue to be on high alert, but we try to remain focused on this gorgeous little spunky girl who was given the gift of life!
