Back in 2012 Leslee Hacker's daughter Lauren was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. On today's podcast Leslee will talk about the very difficult treatment that Lauren went through at that time , resulting in her getting into remission for 3 years. Then on the night of Lauren's 14th birthday party in 2016, Leslee received the dreaded call that Lauren had relapsed, this time with a myeloid sarcoma in her leg.
After surgery and more chemotherapy , Lauren left the hospital in July of 2016 and has been cancer free for the last 6 years.
Leslee will also talk about her non profit Lolo's Angels which in its infancy included a meeting with Taylor Swift and Joe Biden. Her non profit has done a great deal to help Pediatric Cancer patients who have suffered from various forms of this disease.
