Gold Ribbon Hero Destinee T

Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: My daughter is my hero. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2013. She endured years of chemotherapy and never did she complain. She was 2 and a half years old at the time. She was the only person on the 5th floor of Oakland Children’s hospital that was able to hold food down, take pills, and she did it with grace. We had some shaky moments where it was getting scary. She always smiled and told me to take a picture mom, I want to see my hair growing back. She had to learn to walk again. But now she is 6 years old, she loves Finding Dory, baby dolls, reading books about bugs, and catching ladybugs. She is also the second one of my children to suffer from cancer. Her sister Dionys also is a survivor of Sacralcoccygeal Teratoma. They have a lifetime bond.” – Tyiesha P
