In January 2009 at the age of 3, Leah was diagnosed with Wilms Disease stage IV. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation began because she had a large tumor that was attached to her left kidney. In January 2012, she was transferred to the cancer survivor clinic and looked forward to starting the second grade. But in July 2012 she was diagnosed again with cancer, AML to be exact: a nasty form of leukemia. AML is extremely rare for Wilms survivors. For a second time, she was admitted to the hospital. Leah was 6 years old.
Her incredible journey of faith, courage, and love is chronicled by her mother and friend.
