In October, Kassi was diagnosed with AML, Acute Myeloid Leukemia. They took action right away. She underwent treatment and received a bone marrow transplant. But on day 112, she relapsed. She then underwent a second transplant. She had been fighting so hard, but going into this second transplant she had 5% blasts in her blood and 20% in her bone marrow. After the second transplant her WBC and Neutrophil numbers continued to slowly improve. Things were looking hopeful, but unfortunately on morning she woke up weighing 9 lbs heavier. After tests, they confirmed that she was having liver complications. These liver complications became liver failure and sadly contributed to ending her fight with leukemia. On September 27, 2014 Kassi recieved peace.
