“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Layla Alvarez is my warrior granddaughter She is 4 years old and she has been diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia or (ALL).
She is on chemotherapy which makes her feel tired. Sometimes it’s hard for her to walk or stand. She is in the maintenance phase which I have been looking forward to because that means She is going to win this battle . This girl never cries when it’s time for chemo or getting shots. My son and daughter in law are the best, they work very hard to make sure she gets what Layla needs.
She is my Hero !
“Super Layla” and She is the bravest person . So when I am having a really bad day I just think of my super Layla and all she is going though. I should never say I’m having a bad day again .” – Diane A
