This is Phoenix. She’s four years old.
Phoenix lives in Vancouver. Her mother Jenn and father Rahman love her very much. This is Phoenix with Jenn:
This is Rahman and Phoenix:
And this is the most recent picture of the three of them doing what they do:
Phoenix is a tough little girl who was diagnosed with leukemia in Jan 2011. She fought it like a champ, and in June of 2012 she was declared cancer free!
This good news unfortunately was short-lived, and shortly after going home, Phoenix began complaining of fever and pain. They found that the cancer had returned, and she is now fighting for her life. The doctors have said there are no more treatments they can try, and she is now living at Canuck Place with her family. The wonderful staff there are keeping her as comfortable as possible.
Mimi, Papa and their whole family have never wavered in the belief in Phoenix. She is a firebird, just like her name. She will rise from these ashes, again, and prove those doctors wrong.
