JIlian was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma, Stage 3 on June 26,2016, while our family was on vacation. We were in Chicago visiting family and friends when she fell ill, taking her to the ER we learned her diagnoses 8 hours later and 1,000 miles away from home. Our family of 5 and dog remained in Chicago for 4 months living between The Ronald McDonald House, hotels and families couches while she was in the hospital for 101 days going through major surgery,bone marrow biopsies, 5 chemotherapy treatments, and countless other setbacks,side effects, exams and tests. When she was finally stable enough to travel, 9/25/16, we made the trip back to Colorado and resumed care with The Children’s Hospital and completed another 2 rounds of chemotherapy. She was declared in remission Dec 1,2016!
