Logan started complaining of really intense headaches and then would vomit...very common brain tumor symptoms.
She also became clumsy and lethargic at times and would just lay on the couch in pain.

I took Kaylie to the doctor because she was fussy. Her doctor felt a mass in her tummy, so she sent us to an oncologist. At first he diagnosed her with a tumor in her kidney, but after her bone marrow test, we found out she had leukemia.

My whole family had been sick and Peyton couldn't shake her fever. After two nights of sleepness nights because she said she hurt I took her back to the ped to see if she had an ear infection. On a hunch, because she had no other symptoms, he drew blood and the next morning we were admitted to All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg to start treatment. She's been in treatment for 17 weeks now and we're amazed by how resiliant she is.
