At 2, Brooke was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). It quickly became clear that her best chance of survival would be a bone marrow transplant, but the likelihood of finding a donor would be slim. Luckily, her 5-year-old sister Caitlin was a perfect match. The gift of Caitlin’s bone marrow saved her sister’s life. Today, Brooke, 11, and Caitlin, 14, are the best of friends (usually) and have a happy and healthy life ahead.. together.
Olivia was a happy, healthy 6-month-old baby when doctors discovered that she had an enlarged heart. She waited 100 days in the Children’s National Hospital Pediatric Intensive Care Unit for a heart transplant and has been thriving for the past 13 years thanks to Miracle Makers like you!
