When Ariana was suddenly diagnosed with leukemia, she was preparing to leave for Israel to take a GAP year program before attending school at University of Colorado at Boulder.
She had no symptoms but had lots of bruises on her legs and some on her arms. We went to the doctor to have blood work done and later that night she was admitted to the hospital.
Her treatment will be for 2 1/2 years. There are many challenges she will face along with going through treatment.
Ariana is facing all of the physical symptoms due to undergoing chemo, spinal taps, bone marrow procedures.
