I have a friend who learned her daughter had cancer after her 2-year-old pediatrician visit. Her blood work was off, and this led to testing and a diagnosis.
Her daughter is doing fantastic now and has been in remission for years. What’s always stuck with me, however, was a realization my friend had shortly after learning about the cancer.
She told me when her daughter was a toddler, her spirit, spunk, and strong personality could drive her up the wall.
