When Lily was first diagnosed with leukemia, her principal, Mr. Jordan, visited her at the hospital and told her that on his birthday he would come to the neighborhood pool and slide down the water slide with her to celebrate the end of the most intensive part of her treatment.  Sunday, July 26, 2009 was the day that Mr. Jordan kept his promise.  Here are some photos from that day.

Getting her head shaved - March 26, 2009

LilyGallery/Lily.3.26.09c.jpg

Lily decided that she wanted to go ahead and get her head shaved.  She knew that the rest would fall out anyway during the next stage of treatment. She told the stylist, "I need to get my head shaved because I have leukemia."  Afterwards she said, "Thank you."

Lily was in the hospital because of low blood counts in this photo from February 9, 2009.  Despite the low blood counts, she felt good.  At one point she was turning pirouettes around the room.

At home on January 4, 2009.  Lily is wearing a cool new hat!  Only 5-10% of kids lose their hair during this "induction" phase of treatment, and Lily was one of them. There was just a little left at this point.

Miley Cyrus came to Vandy Children's Hospital on December 23,2008.  She spent time talking with each child - and she gave Sophie and Lily autographed pictures.

A few days after Lily was diagnosed, Sophie read one of her kindergarten books to Lily in the hospital.

Playing games on her DS helped her pass the time while she was in the hospital.  Early December 2008.

This photo was taken at Gimmie's house in Georgia on Thanksgiving Day, 2008 - four days before diagnosis.  In addition to the back pain, Lily was now pale and had circles under her eyes. She still felt well enough to turn cartwheels in the yard with her cousins for awhile that afternoon.

Lily/Lily.2.11.19.08.JPG

At gymnastics - 12 days before she was diagnosed with ALL. Two days before this picture she'd been to the pediatrician who said her back pain was probably because of straining a muscle in gymnastics.

This photo was taken in July 2008 while Lily was at the beach in Florida with her family.
