About Alyssa

Here is a brief synopsis of Alyssa’s journey with cancer. We hope and pray Alyssa’s story of hope and strength will encourage others on a similar path.

In May 2016 Alyssa began experiencing odd pains in her upper chest. After seeking the medical expertise of countless physicians, she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in May 2017. This same disease took the life of my mother when I was 2 years old; my sister was only one. Alyssa underwent chemotherapy, proton radiation, transfusions, PET scans, MRIs, surgeries, etc. Alyssa had apheresis at the Mott Children’s Hospital/University of Michigan in Ann Arbor earlier this month in anticipation of her stem cell transplant (ASCT) scheduled for when she becomes PET negative. She is currently undergoing outpatient chemo at Beaumont. It has been a rough road, but somehow we have found great joy on this unexpected journey. Family, friends and strangers have lifted our spirits. It is our strength in God that pushes us forward with hope and peace. Yes, there are awful moments when you see your precious baby suffering, vomiting, asking you why this had to happen. And during those times we hug and cry and pray for the wherewithal to carry on. If there is someone out there who needs us to lift them up, do reach out to us, for in helping we often become the beneficiary of the greatest joy. Alyssa loves children and dogs, any pets really, but especially dogs. 

Grace, peace and love to you,

Denise and Alyssa
