Avalynn Hope, has been in a grueling battle to fight AML Leukemia since 2016 when she was 4 1/2 years old. This fight started at UC Davis, In Sacramento CA and landed her in the ICU, and truly no hope to live after contracting infections that almost took her life. Miraculously, she walked out of the hospital cancer free.
Avalynn enjoyed 6 glorious months at home and then in 2018, the leukemia came back. This time it took this family of 5, her parents and two sisters, 4 hours away, to seek treatment from cutting edge technology and research at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.
Avalynn and her family faced the battle head on, after months of chemo therapy and an attempt at transplant, a mishap involving her knee and mold on her skin halted that attempt, which resulted in the leukemia returning for the 3rd time.
Miraculously a new stem cell transplant was presented and Avalynn finally went into transplant on September 19, 2019. Several complications arose, but that didn't stop this little fighter from beating it.
3 days shy of her 1 year "stem cell birthday" the blood test again showed positive signs of leukemia. And brought them yet again to Lucille Packard, to seek treatment and answers.
UPDATE: Avalynn left this earth to enjoy heaven forever, cancer-free on October 6, 2019
