Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia: The Leon Family Story

The Leon's daughter- only 4 years old - is a playful little girl whose bright brown eyes and energetic smile bring joy to everyone around her. In many ways, she is a typical toddler.

She adores drawing and playing with dolls.  And she loves her dad and calls him her best friend. The Leon family are extraordinary survivors. At just two and a half years old, Maria’s daughter has persevered through more challenges than most of us face in a lifetime.

In 2016, Maria’s daughter was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. At only 2 years old, Maria’s daughter was rushed to QEH Hospital for life-saving care. Maria and her husband were reassured by the excellence and compassion of the doctors and nurses during this difficult time.

Please donate to the Barbados Cancer Society to strengthen families and communities and assist with financial burdens.
