Marlie Jean Curwin

Hi! My name is Marlie Jean Curwin. My Mama’s name is Erin. On January 5th, Mama noticed that I wasn’t using one of my legs very well. It was sore and swollen and I had a little fever too; I just wasn’t feeling myself. She took me to the doctor and we stayed a couple of days in the Moncton Hospital. They did some tests on me and before I knew it, on January 7th, they flew me to the IWK. That was my first plane ride and I didn’t like it one bit.

The next day, I was visited by lots of people. Some came to talk and see my leg and some came to take my blood....I didn’t give it up without a fight though. Then a doctor came to just talk. They said I have AML Leukemia. I’m not sure what that means, but I know my Mama and Aunty Kellie started to cry. Mama and I are told this place will be our home for the next 4-6 months. I heard Mama say that we would be out of here in 4 months because apparently I’m very strong willed and stubborn and she knows I can do it. I’d like to add that I’m also smart, funny and…very cute!

I will be turning 1 years old on February 9th. It’s not the best place to celebrate your birthday but I still get to have a little party. They are really great to us here at the IWK. My family all loves me SO much, especially Mama; she hasn’t left my side. I have the best Mama! My Aunty has been here with Mama and me most of the time too. My Grammy (Veva) and Grampy (Gary) will be visiting me lots and lots. I know my family is scared and I realize that I need them with me right now, but I worry that they will become financially and emotionally drained.

Please help them to have one less thing to worry about… they are worried enough.
