Chemo Is Over!

This kid has reached THE milestone! 
She is done with chemotherapy.
Just 2 years, 3 months, and 2 days after diagnosed with leukemia at the age of 5.
After countless days in the hospital.
After having radiation to her brain.
After three surgeries (with one still to go).
After losing her hair twice.
After breaking her ankle from poor bone health.
After an allergic reaction to chemo that landed her in ICU.
After watching her friend Jake lose his own battle with cancer.
She is done.
She is done with chemo.
She has made us wordlessly proud.
She has a strength beyond words.
She is our hero.

She begins monthly blood tests now.
Every month her blood will be checked to make sure it doesn't contain any leukemia cells.
Every month her mother and father will get an ulcer waiting for the results.

We have so many hopes for her.
Dreams, hopes, wishes.
All for a normal life.
A life without drama.
A life without medication.
A life without pain.

A life with all that her heart desires in front of her to take.
