Hello friends and family!
On March 15, 2017, seven year old Mckenna and her family received the news no one wants to hear - Mckenna had Leukemia. Her life has changed forever.
The testing began and the news just kept getting worse. She didn't have just one type of Leukemia, she had both ALL and AML. There was a tumor behind her eye the size of a large lemon that was headed for the brain. And she had a mutated gene called FLT3 that tends to help Leukemia cells grow. Needless to say, the family was devastated!
Since then Mckenna has undergone chemotherapy, radiation and, just recently, a bone marrow transplant. She is currently in Hershey Medical Center hoping to be released soon!
From day one Four Diamonds has been there making sure that the only thing Mckenna's parents needed to worry about was her!! Four Diamonds not only provided the simple things like gas and food vouchers but they have covered ALL her medical costs! Her parents have not received any hospital bills!
