Amy El Alaoui   HOUSTON, TX
Amani's was dagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (A.M.L.) on December 11, 2012. Prior to being diagnosed she was having difficulty breathing and was using an inhaler for 3 weeks while being in and out of the Dr's office. Amani was at the Pediatrician's office when they did blood work. I was told her blood counts were all abnormal and seriously low. The Dr. said there was no nice way to say that she either had a virus or Leukemia. I felt my heart drop to the floor! Amani was taken by ambulance to Texas Children's Hospital ER on December 6, 2012. Amani went through days of tests which included IVs, airway treatments, spinal taps, bone marrow biopsies, and finally the dreaded news that she had AML. She also had Flu and Pneumonia on top of it (the viral part). Amani started her first round of chemotherapy by mid December. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers, Amani is in remission, Thank God, Alhumdillah. She finished 6 phases of chemo, numerous tests and surgeries, and blood/platelet transfusions. The effects of the hard finacial times are still a burden even after her miraculous remission from cancer.

Unfortunately, Amani has been experiencing some of the same pains and symptoms she had before when diagnosed with leukemia. We are in Michigan and need to get home ASAP to her Oncologist in Texas. I tried to sell some furniture, my van and other household items to come here and see my son graduate and visit family. Now I'm doing the same to go back. If you are able to help in any way we would be forever appreciative. I really don't like to ask but because her leg pain has gotten progressively worse I am in desperate need of getting her back to her main support system and mine as well. Again we really appreciate any and all you can do to help!
Much Love,
Amanis Dream Team.
P.S. No donation is too small and dua's/prayers are welcome!

Amani is doing well after getting her picc line out. She is adjusting to her heart medication in which she has twice a day. She enjoys being home with her family. She talks about going swimming every single day and cannot wait for her arm to heal so she can go to the beach.
