Lily Love Skeen is 4 and lives in The Woodlands, Texas with her dad, Daniel, mom Christel, her brother Forest 10 and her sister Maggie 13. 

On September 16, 2016, Lily went to visit her Pediatrician for a possible ear ache. Later that same day, Lily was admitted to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston. The next day, she was diagnosed with Leukemia . 
A few days  later ,  Lily underwent  a lumbar puncture and bone marrow biopsy. Her first round  of chemo began a few days later.

Lily has many family and friends for support. Lily is a fighter and like other little girls her age she loves princesses, Frozen is one of her favorite movies, she loves popcorn, sprite and beans and rice. She loves dressing up and playing princess. 

We want to thank everyone for the positive thoughts, prayers and support especially though these first few months adjusting to this new way of life. There are so many people looking to help so we’ve started with this page in hopes of raising money for our family to offset costs of medical expenses, parking and loss of wages, Christel will be taking time off of her job to care for Lily full-time and be with her for her chemo and other procedures.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and even if a donation isn’t possible, please send prayers and positive thoughts to Lily and the Skeen family. Let’s please do all we can  to help Lily fight this battle with cancer!

Lily is doing great! She's back in school beginning in Kindergarten.

After suffering heart damage from chemo, a recent visit to the cardiac Dr. shows her heart to be back to pretty much normal.

Lily is happy and smiling all day, every day. We wanted to let everyone know how much we really appreciate your support.

It has been a long while since I've posted an update. Lily is doing great and is still in remission. She will be visiting Disney World in March thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation! We are very excited to see what she will think about it. April 19 will be anniversary of her bone marrow transplant and we look for ward to celebrating that with everyone.

Lily is doing great since her bone marrow transplant. The Dr.s took her off some medications including the anti-rejection medication. Lily is still going to doctor visits twice a week for blood work and last week hsd another bone marrow aspiration to check the percentage of donor marrow. Last visit she was at 94%. Coming up in September, we will be required by insurance to pay $2000 up front to continue Lily's medical care, so if possible, Please SHARE this page. Next update when we find out her latest Donor BM percentage which needs to be higher to prevent relapse. Thank you all!!
Last Friday's visit at TCH

My youngest Grandchild Lillian Love Skeen. The person that loves me the most. I've watched over her a single day each week for the past 2 months. At 63 yo, I have never known as much sadness as seeing her suffer from the plethora of chemicals and probing by dozens of Dr's. I believe she thinks I hung the moon in the sky for her . She is my bliss . I share her Love with you all .
