Brooke Mulford is 13 years old has always been such a happy and tender hearted little girl, full of energy and a love for life.  She never complained about anything until Christmas Eve 2008 (age 4) when she started limping and complaining of pain in her leg.  She was misdiagnosed at a local hospital in Maryland with toxic synovitis.  Soon after she was unable to straighten her legs, the pain was unbearable and she started running a fever.  At the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) on January 5, 2009, Brooke was diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer, stage IV high risk neuroblastoma. The cancer had started in her right adrenal gland and had spread through pretty much every bone in her body and approximately 80% of her bone marrow.  Since that awful day, Brooke has had 8 rounds of Chemotherapy, 4 surgeries, 2 stem cell transplants, numerous bone marrow biopsies, blood and platelet transfusions, 12 days of radiation to her skull, both femurs and abdomen, and completed a grueling 6 month immunotherapy clinical trial (ch.14.18) in April 2010.

Brooke suffered significant high frequency hearing loss from her chemotherapy treatments and now requires hearing aids in both ears.  She is monitored closely for possible late effects from all her treatments. Throughout her almost 1 and years of treatment at CHOP, Brooke never once complained about having to go to the hospital for treatments and actually enjoyed “sleepovers” and getting to see her amazing doctors, nurses and very special Child Life Specialist.  Brooke amazes her mom with her positive attitude, strength and joy as she continues to celebrate life every day!  She will always be her mom's hero and her world.

 

Sara Ann Kronrot is also 13 years old and dubbed "Super Art Girl" by her classmates at Crescent Hill Academy in Pennsauken. She continues to prove she is a "miracle in every way".  Sara Ann suffers from Severe Cerebral Palsy due to lack of oxygen at birth.  As a result, she is a spastic quadriplegic, unable to use her arms or legs, and unable to sit up or stand on her own.  She is g-tube fed and has to have secretions suctioned from her mouth every 15 minutes due to a weak swallow.  As of 2017, she has survived debilitating repiratory problems with well over 200 hospital stays since birth.  Undaunted, this child's spirit is unflagging.  She stunned everyone by learning to move the tips of her fingers enabling her to write, draw and paint remarkable beautiful pictures in which she displays real talent.
