September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. At PCFLV, we are committed to spreading the GOLD all year long. However, in September, we truly make it our mission. 30 Days, 30 Stories celebrates the children we know and love and the brave battles they fight and have fought, with their families by their sides. In celebrating these beautiful children and their stories, we hope to inspire you to join us in our mission to SPREAD THE GOLD in September and all year long!

September 19th
Hello my name is Brenda, I'm Angel's earthly mother. At the age of 10 years old, Angel was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He endured 3 years of intense chemotherapy, lumbar punctures, bone marrow aspirations/biopsies and many blood & platelet transfusions. Angel finished his treatment in January 2011. We were getting ready to celebrate Angel's milestone and I was about to finish nursing school (it was such a happy moment, the one that you just one to freeze it). In May of 2011, Angel started with shortness of breath and was not feeling well. We took him to see his oncologist and unfortunately the leukemia came back. This time Angel needed a bone marrow transplant which he received in February 28, 2012. Angel got very sick from the transplant but that didn't stop him from fighting. We finally came back home on July 27, 2012, with a healthy child that finally reached remission. Angel wanted to have a special Thanksgiving dinner with all of his family and we did. After 9 months of fighting the side effects from the transplant and finally feeling well, Angel relapsed again. One more time our whole world collapsed, this time his chances of surviving this terrible disease was not very good. Angel was transferred to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to receive the drug, CART-19. Unfortunately after 3 infusions, the results were not good. From March 2013, Angel, his dad, and I focused to be with him as much as we could. Angel gave me specifically things to do after his departure to heaven. He made me promise that I would finish my nursing school and to do the best thing I was born to do - to care for people. He made me promise to never lose my faith and to continue to believe. He made me promise that one day we will be together again, forever. Angel and I had the opportunity to talk about the life I will try very hard to do after his departure. Among of all the topics we talked about the one that is still difficult for me was when he said, "in heaven cancer does not exist and there is no pain." He looked at me and said, "Mommy, you should be happy I'm going to heaven, Are you ready now?". I looked at him and I hugged him as I was giving him permission to go. I recently graduated from nursing school and I'm working at a local hospital doing what I love the most - caring for people with all of my heart. My beautiful Angel, I hope you are happy, cancer and pain free. I love you so much!
