Help Liz Fight Leukemia

Liz was first diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia at the age of 21, right after graduating from UB. After seven rounds of chemo, she went into remission.

Three years after her first diagnosis, she went to find out the sex of her second child, and her bloodwork came back abnormal. Roswell confirmed the next day that she had relapsed.

She has been back in the hospital for a few weeks, and has a few more to go before she is strong enough to go home. She has a tough road ahead to recovery with her weakened immune system and high risk pregnancy.

Any donation is greatly appreciated. Let's help Liz beat cancer!!

UPDATE FROM LIZ:
Baby Theo is almost 2 months old and I still haven’t written out my crazy unbelievable birth story! He’s been in the NICU gaining weight like crazy, we’re expecting him to come home sometime in December so our Christmas wish this year is for both me and Theo to be home from the hospital.

Birth story: the morning after I was discharged from my pneumonia hospitalization, I woke up bleeding and started cramping shortly after. I was only 26 weeks along, we had a plan to induce at 33 weeks, and I was absolutely positive I was not in labor. The EMT’s thought differently and took me to Childrens hospital despite them refusing me over the phone. By the time the ambulance got me inside I was bleeding bad, I was 6 cm dilated, and I was still adamant that I wasn’t having a baby that day lol. I knew I was in a dangerous situation since my platelets (blood clotting factor) were extremely low and without a transfusion it was extremely likely I would bleed out, and then they told me Theo was breech and i was going into an emergency c section. Before they even had time to check me in as a patient or prepare an OR they were rushing me into the hallway of operating rooms and everybody was yelling at each other asking what room to take me into. They were so busy yelling at each other that only one nurse heard me when the next contraction came and I pushed the baby out right in the hallway! She had to check under the sheet she couldn’t believe it. They brought me into the first empty room and started paging for the NICU nurses to get there ASAP because the baby was out, and all I could ask was why I didn’t hear him crying? I delivered him not only breech, but with the amniotic sac still completely in tact. He wasn’t crying because he had no idea he was born! It was the perfect situation because that kept his oxygen supply going until they were ready for him. In a matter of minutes everything changed from the worst possible scenario to the best. I would have died of blood loss if they had performed the c section they were planning, and Theo might have died if his sac had ruptured. He weighed only 1.5lbs.

Some people reading this may not believe, but this was undeniably the work of someone watching over us. Prayers really do work. And from what I hear, babies born in the sac are extra special! We can’t wait to see what Theo has in store for us and we especially can’t wait for him to meet his big brother. Even with my transplant continuing to be delayed, and facing yet another round of chemo not even two weeks after the last, I remain hopeful for our future. Thank you all so much for your continuing support and prayers!
