Featured Video: Liliana’s last chemo
Watch six-year-old Lilianna celebrate her last in-house chemo treatment with her family and care team at Advocate Children’s Hospital! She was diagnosed with pre B acute lymphoblastic leukemia back in January of 2016. Her next step is power port removal.
Lilianna loves the ocean, playing outside, Disney movies and country music star Luke Bryan. She enjoys playing with her siblings and cousins, painting and participating in faith-based ballet/dance. Lilianna has been an honorary St. Baldrick’s Foundation kid nine times in the past three years. This year, it will be with the Chicago Police Department. (Her uncle is a police officer.)
Congrats to Lilianna and her family!
