Kayla is a very happy, friendly and adorable 5 year old. She started Kindergarten this past fall and loves school! Every day she can't wait to get to school and play with her friends. She adores her teacher!
Over the past month or so Kayla hadn't been feeling well. She complained her hip hurt and was tired. Mommy knew that something was not right and took her to see her pediatrician. The Dr. ordered a blood test and when he received it; they ordered a second one as they thought it was wrong. Her blood count was too low.
On Saturday Dec. 20th she was taken to Loma Linda Children's Hospital where they ran a series of test. These tests were to confirm what they already knew and that she had Leukemia.
On Sunday Dec. 21st Kayla was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).
On Monday Dec. 22nd Kayla had her first round of Chemo.
