Archive for September, 2018
September is mostly known for back to school and football, but what most people don’t know is that it is also childhood cancer awareness month.
Holley cook is a Local 5 year old in Yakima Wa. who was diagnosed with with A.L.L. Leukemia (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia). She enjoys spending time with her dad fishing and hunting, playing dress up with her sister (Hailey), and cuddling on the couch watching movies with her mom.
Since her diagnosis she has made great strides towards the road of recovery. She no longer has a feeding tube or a port for her Chemotherapy and Radiation therapy. She was able to go to Disney Land (Funded by the Make a Wish Foundation), as well as meet the Seattle Seahawks! She has been fighting for two years now but did have a relapse which she is currently fighting.
She has recently been able to go back to school which is difficult for her since she still has to travel to Seattle Children’s Hospital for doctors appointments at least once a month depending on her health.
Holley enjoys helping people which is why with the help of her mom and KIMA News she is accepting donations of items to give to other children in the hospital where she gets treatment.
A wish list of items are listed on the KIMA link below.
