Lilianna and her twin brother, James, was born on the Big Island of Hawaii. At two weeks old, Lilianna was diagnosed with an abdominal teratoma. She had surgery to remove the tumor but was too weak to undergo chemo. After a few months of no issues, the tumor started to grow again. Our family moved back to Colorado to start chemo and ended up having six rounds of therapy which lasted six months. She also had surgery to remove the tumor again but had some complications after the surgery. She needed another emergency surgery too because her intestines became obstructed after the previous surgery. Eventually she got stronger and ended up making a full recovery. By 8 months old she was officially done with treatment. She is now 9 years old and doesn’t even remember any of her treatment. She is a very active 4th grader and has had no issues from her cancer other than some slight hearing loss due to the chemotherapy.
