I’d like to introduce you to our 2017 Walk by Faith Honorees…Jillie and Lily. While both of these sweet girls were both being treated for Leukemia they struck up a friendship that I’m certain will last a lifetime.

Jillie is 15 years old, and battling Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). She has four younger siblings and adores her puppy, Zendaya. Although hospital stays, medications, and feeling yucky are all a part of her daily life, she continues to smile and share her heart of gold with everyone she meets. 

 

Lily is 5 years old and she too is battling Acture Myeloid Leukemia.  She loves to dance & sing and has two older siblings who take great care of her.  This little girl has been through so much but you’d never know it because she continues smile and treat life like it’s one big party.

 

Both girls’ moms are teachers who have had to cut back in hours without pay.  The numerous treatments and follow-up visits required puts a strain on both families.  Thanks to the generosity of our many supporters, Addi’s Faith Foundation could provide them with financial assistance when they needed it most.
