Gold Ribbon Hero: Ariana

Meet Ariana, a 7-year-old acute lymphoblastic leukemia warrior.

In early 2021, Ariana stopped eating and started experiencing vomiting, weight loss, stomach pain, bruising and petechia. She was taken to two doctors and when her pediatrician wasn’t helping, Ariana’s pediatrician was switched. “They saw her right away and didn’t look at me like I was crazy. She did a CBC and sent us to the emergency room immediately” said Monica, Ariana’s mother. 

“The [car] ride there was scary, so many thoughts. We felt like the world was over.”

Ariana was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia on February 1, 2021. She underwent chemotherapy almost immediately, a gallbladder removal and port placement. According to her mother, “she was on tract and set to finish, but relapsed three months before the end of treatment.” 

According to our last update, Ariana is full of energy, even on her bad days. “She continues to surprise all of us.”
