Fighter Aleah is NED! [Post #13 3 PM]

Aleah was diagnosed with NB on Dec 28, 2003 and finished treatment in 2005. She had 6 rounds of chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant, radiation, and the Ch14.18 experimental treatment at the end of her treatment. She is currently NED and in remission! She was treated at UK Children's Hospital in Lexington, KY and Cincinnati Children's Hospital in Ohio.

Aleah and her family currently live in Winchester, KY where Aleah will start Kindergarten this fall. She is growing, beautiful and as happy as ever. She loves her nurses and doctors.

Aleah and her family are offering support to other NB families as they are fighting this disease. They have become buddies with a little 4 yr old boy at their hospital in Lexington who is currently in Cincinnati for stem cell transplant. His name is Cameron Mullis. Please visit him here: www.caringbridge.org/visit/cameronmullis They also had a friend who passed away from this cancer, his name was Collin Poynter. His parents have started and continued a foundation in his honor that is located here: www.collinsclassic.org

Nikki’s Notes: Aleah turned 5 years old yesterday on July 28th! Be sure & send her a birthday greeting via her website! I made this graphic for her to be added to her site!
