The type of cancer that Ellie Koerner is battling is Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). It occurs in 1 out of every 29,000 children in the United States each year. The improvement in survival for children with ALL over the past 35 years is one of the great success stories of cancer treatment. In the 1960s, less than 5 percent of children with ALL survived for more than five years. Today, about 85 percent of children with ALL live five years or more. Ellie WILL be one of the survivors. With the improvements in chemotherapy, her blood will be cured. With all of your love and support, our hearts will be healed.
