At age 2, Callie started having trouble walking after a fall in early November. After seeing a pediatric orthopedist for weeks and then a pediatric neurologist for an MRI of her brain and spine, Callie’s parents finally got an answer in January as to what was going on with their little girl.
An x-ray of her right leg and blood work showed that Callie has acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Fortunately, after a month of intense chemotherapy, she was in remission. Callie still makes weekly trips to the hospital for her chemo treatments. She has been in physical rehab three times a week to regain the ability to walk on her own. She keeps getting better and stronger each day!
