“Celah Amoreyn Condon was born with her twin brother Jacob in August of 2010. When she was just three months old she was diagnosed with Infant Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. We moved from our cabin in Alaska to Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House a few days before Christmas. She was treated with six rounds of aggressive clinical trial chemotherapy and finished a little after her first birthday.
We moved back home to Alaska to complete two years of maintenance therapy and she got busy learning from her twin brother the joys of eating, and crawling. After four months at home she started to become sick again, and we were flown back to Seattle fearing a relapse of her cancer. She was diagnosed with CMV a common virus that usually only affects weakened immune systems. We stayed in Seattle for another six months before she was again healthy enough to go back home.
We are now eagerly awaiting the end of her cancer treatment this December! She loves to dance, eat, read books about babies, and play with her brother Jacob.”
