We are trying to raise money to help with her battle against Relapse ALL CNS. Please show your support!!!

Hi my name is Kathy Zinn, I am Miranda's grandmother she is living with me. On August 8th 2010 Miranda became ill and was taken to Penn State Children's Hospital Hershey PA. We were told she had ALL (Leukemia). She was going through Chemo Tx and was doing good. She was on Maintence Phase but on April 4, 2012 she had a spinal tap. I got a call from her doctor and was told she developed Leukemi
a Cells in her spine and brain. I had a lot of support from my 2 sisters Marjie Markle and Jenny Senft on the day we had to report with Miranda to Hershey. We sat down with the doctors and they explained everything to us. Her treatments were totally different this time around. We go to Hershey every week for her treatments, they are admissions. She will also be starting Radiation treatments soon. Miranda gets blood transfusion due to blood counts dropping. She still has to have spinal taps once a month to keep a eye on her bone marrow. I had to take a year off from work to care for Miranda. Things are tough but I wouldn't change a thing. I have a lot of support from my sisters, brothers and Bobby's family. Miranda's treatments will continue for over a year then we go into maintence phase again. I am so proud of her!!!!
