In November of 2017 we got the news no parent wants to hear. Erica was diagnosed with Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis, which meant months of chemotherapy. She started right away and met every challenge with determination and a sense of humour.
After many rounds of treatment we thought it was finished, but she had a recurrence that next fall. She started chemotherapy once again, but this time it was during the pandemic.
Frustrated at times, sad often and struggling to figure out the why, we are finally near the end of the battle. She has one more round of chemo, we hope. She has been under treatment for half her life. It all started when she was 5, and she celebrates her 10th birthday at the end of January. In honour of her resilience and her birthday, we are raising funds for CHEO. Please take a moment to donate. As hard as it has been, CHEO has had our backs the entire way.
