In 2011 Allison received the devastating news that she had Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (C.M.L). As an active mother and adventurer, this caused quite a
halt to life as she knew it. Today Allison is on a Tasigna regimen which helps manage C.M.L. and allow her to still bake, read, hike, and enjoy her family.
"Surviving cancer is a different experience for everyone. But one thing most survivors say is that their life after the cancer is not the same. For Me, it's all
about the simple joys my family brings. I count my blessings every single day and realize how blessed I am when I look at my girls - I am still here! People say
I am strong, I really don't believe it. I just want to be here to see my girls grow up into beautiful women, and so far I am blessed to do that. All I can say is
Thank You God for another day."
Cheers to you Allison!
