Read her story here.
On August 12, seven year old Bella Meyer was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) type B. Since her diagnosis Bella has undergone multiple blood and platelet transfusions, bone marrow biopsies, many surgical procedures and countless rounds of chemotherapy at UW American Family Children's Hospital in Madison, WI. As part of the "highest risk" class leukemia patients, she is just beginning her fight. In December the wonderful team of doctors gave Bella and the family the best news. She is in remission! Unfortunately this does not lighten the load any for Bella as far as treatment goes. Because of her "high risk" status she will continue to undergo all procedures and chemotherapy as previously planned out for the next 2 1/2 years. Bella and the family will continue to endure weekly trips from Rockford, IL to Madison, WI.
Bella is a fun loving second grader who is wise beyond her years. Her amazing strength and brave spirit keeps her mom, dad and brother Braxton moving forward every day. Bella is a true girly girl. She loves to sing, dance, swim, and play with her American Girl dolls. Bella enjoys doing puzzles, arts and crafts and making bracelets. She has recently started a little business of making and selling these bracelets in order to save up for more AG stuff. Bella cares so much for others and has made many friends going through similar experiences at UW Children's hospital. She is an inspiration to her family and all who know her!
