On December 7, 2017, my beautiful, 3 year old granddaughter, Emelina Sergentakis, was diagnosed with Pre B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).  Emelina was being treated for fever and possible sinus infection until she started to bruise on her chest and belly on the fifth day.  My daughter and son-in-law brought her to the ER at Centre State Hospital in Freehold, NJ never imagining what they would be told a few hours later.  When the doctor returned with Emelina’s results from blood work, she told them that she suspected Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and that transport was on the way and her bed was secured at the Bristol Myer’s Squibb Children’s Hospital at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. 

Within 24 hours, Emelina went into surgery to have her port placed on the left side of her chest, her first dose of chemo was delivered via a spinal tap and a bone marrow biopsy was performed to pinpoint the exact type of Leukemia she had.

  Emelina is considered a high-risk patient, due to her initial white blood count.  For that, she undergoes high dose chemotherapy that is administered into her port, which is a central line into the largest vessel in her body.  Emelina is on a Frontline Protocol for ALL, which spans the course of two and a half years.  At 3 years old, Emelina has gone through more than most of us will go through in the course of our lives. She has had at minimum 10 spinal taps to inject chemo into her spinal fluid to ensure the Leukemia can never travel to her spine and/or brain.  She has spent many a night in the hospital due to fever, dehydration, regular viruses that you and I could fight off easily and a terrible bout with c-diff. 

Emelina is doing amazing and has gone through all of this like a true warrior princess.  Her happiness and spunk are and always have been in full effect.  Her prognosis is wonderful and at the end of this journey she will be a happy, healthy, thriving 5 year old.  Please consider donating to her fight and to the family to aid in her hospital bills and travel expenses, as they will continue on this journey for the next two years.  No child should ever have to endure this and no parent should have to watch his or her child go through this without any control to take the pain away.  Thank you so much!!! #EmmatheBrave
