Something special about Olivia:
Olivia was diagnosed at birth with Stage 4S Neuroblastoma (right adrenal, bone marrow, kidneys and liver). Our CMN hospital had never seen this before and learned right along with us. 100 babies/year are born with this disease, but our family believes that Olivia is one in a million. She began treatment at 36 hours old. She continued treatment for 6 months on an outpatient basis (every 21 days) and has been in remission for 2 1/2 years. She is a fireball with a zest for life. Her blonde curls and twinkling eyes, (which have tricks in them) radiate and light up a room. Our little miracle is the definition of a love for life. She fought with every ounce of her being and we love her for that. Olivia turns 3 years old on November 28, 2004.
