Meet Our Tropical Queen

Madelina was a happy, fun-loving toddler. One month prior to her 2nd birthday, after a few months of extreme tiredness and unexplained bruising, she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). She spent approximately 6 months at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh where she underwent four rounds of chemotherapy. Madelina currently has no evidence of disease and is a playful 6 year old who is ready to begin First Grade this fall. Recently, her oncologist has moved her to yearly visits since she was doing so well!
