Mikayla's Story:(12.08.08) Mikayla is an wonderful and active 17 year old who has entered her senior year at Pendleton High School. This summer, after noticing unusual bruising, she learned she has Acute Promyelocytic Mylogenous Leukemia (APML). This is difficult enough news, but the day she was diagnosed was the same day her birth father passed away when she was young. She has already undergone chemotherapy treatments and has a challenging road ahead. She'll need chemo and arsenic treatments for at least the next two years. These treatments will make her sick and harder to get through. The good news is that she is well loved by her school and they are ready to support Mikayla through community service. Mikayla loves the tv show Friends, is into acting, books and going to movies. Sparrow Cash that her school earns will help her family pay for medical and living expenses and travel costs for her treatments.
