In early January of 2017 Leilani became ill with vague symptoms and nightly fevers that grew in duration and intensity. Then, suddenly, she woke up and was unable to walk. After seeing her pediatrician, her fever returned, and Leilani found herself and family being flown from Yuma, AZ to Phoenix. At that point, this sweet and loving four year old was being admitted for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).
After eleven days in the hospital, her big brother Luke spoke with her in a way that close siblings do, letting her know "we are going to karate chop" this together. Leilani has had to endure a rigorous course of treatment ad will continue through the process until she turns age six.
Leilani is a bright, vibrant, and creative young girl who is interested in everything from riding a horse, learning a piano, hosting tea parties, and pretending to host pet adoptions!
