On Sunday, Tavish bumped his lip and it was hard to stop the bleeding. The next day, the first day of October, his parents, Charles and Maren, took him to see the pediatrician. In the early hours of Tuesday, October 2, Tavish was diagnosed with high-risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia—a cancer of the early blood-forming cells. He then received an additional diagnosis of Mixed-Lineage Leukemia—a particularly difficult-to-treat form of the condition.
He has been separated from his brother Ewan, age 7, and sister Isla, age 5, who went to live with their grandparents in a nearby town the night Tavish went to the hospital.

Jay Lafratta-Orr. Hi my name is Jay. On the 28th of September I was diagnosed with T-Cell lymphoma. Ilyana Arteaga-Rosas. At 5 and a half months old, Ilyana had been vomiting more than a typical baby. Shayla and Mateo had taken her to her pediatrician where she was diagnosed with acid reflux and chronic colds each time. Ilyana was put on medication to help control the acid reflux. She would take a 6 oz bottle and end up throwing up over half of what she ate.
Over a few days she decreased what she would eat and was only taking an ounce at a time throwing that up to the point of where she had to be seen at the emergency room for dehydration. In a weeks span, they were seen 7 times at clinic and 3 times in the emergency room for the same symptoms. When she was back at the ER, she was about to be released but during a shift change, the oncoming doctor noticed she had weakness in her right arm.
The doctor decided to look further and ordered a CT scan. The doctor noticed a tumor that covered a quarter of her brain and said Illyana needed it removed now. The tumor was compressing her brain stem and cerebellum and causing the vomiting and breathing issues. The surgeons were able to resect almost all of the tumor. The cancer had spread to other regions of her brain and with the resection of the tumor it has caused a leptomenigeal spread. Her team of neuro oncologists have decided to go with an aggressive approach. She will need to be treated with treatments being given over 4 days every 3 weeks for at least 6 months depending on the outcome with this treatment.
With this type of rare cancer, Ilyana will spend the majority of the time at the hospital. Living in Centralia puts them over an hour away. With her still having a virus, Mauricio has been unable to come spend much time at the hospital. Ilyana has fought hard and we know she will continue to fight every day. Please pray for her strength to continue to fight this battle! Yzabella Del Rosario. She has a 9 year old sister who she is very close with.

Three days after her diagnosis, she started chemotherapy.

We took her to get glasses thinking that would help and maybe cut back on television. A few years later our family moved to Washington state for a new start in life.

While she has always been healthy, she presented no real symptoms till the day of diagnosis.
Getting out of the shower she felt dizzy and since she was being a little lazy the last couple of days of Spring Break we figured she had a bug or flu.

Rowen has always been an active and curious creature!
He has the most magnetic smile and precocious sense of humor that can cure any gloomy mood. This is an uncommon type of leukemia that presented initially with internal bleeding and severe coagulopathy concerns. This required Rowen to receive many different daily blood and blood product transfusions. This ranged from the leukemia sugar coating his spine and meninges, making it difficult for the doctors to treat since they were uncertain of what side of those barriers the cancer lai,d to a very rare reaction in his mandible and at the base of the skull that caused excruciating pain.
The results from the biopsy came back as new bone growth with unknown origin. No infection or inflammation in the bony specimen has been found. Rowen is being discussed around many medical teams nationwide. We are awaiting how we should move forward, knowing there is pain and no idea why his body decided to react this way.
This induction has been seven weeks of unknowns and the unlikeliest circumstances. Still our family is full of life and beaming with support of many friends and relatives! With the challenges to get Rowe Baby healthy, we are determined do to so with humor, love, and compassion!

Having gained confidence now that the camera is on, he begins talking smack and placing bets on how much he can eat. There are two things one should know about Lenny. First, he can't say no to anything. Second, he's the easiest person to make laugh. The first one is relevant in this case. I glance at her and laugh a little, thinking the only strong thing about this girl is her jawline.
Lenny leans down to take a whiff of the concoction but pulls back quickly, trying not to make a face. Lenny leans back while I scoot forward and bring the lens right up to the slightly green and watery mixture.

The pickles, peaches, and fruit snacks make it extra chunky and colorful, while the Jell-O has been mushed into slime. It looks the same way it's going to look when it comes back up. Jasper snatches the camera away from me and looks up at Lenny.

Keep it down and it's thirty. I have to look away when Lenny dives spoon-first into the hearty-style peach-mayo-and-more soup. Like Allison, I can't watch him take that first bite, swallow, gag a little, and push forward. Unlike Allison, I sneak tiny peeks at Lenny, who struggles to spoon another glob into his mouth. It proves to be too disgusting to watch, though.
He spits up a little, and I shield my eyes while Jasper cheers. Lenny lurches forward like he's going to puke, and I ram into Allison to get into the splatter-free zone while Jasper closes in on him. Looking around, I can see we've attracted the attention of other students. Some of our peers are actually leaning across their tables to see if he'll spew.
Jasper and I share a look across the table, hiding smiles. She's always in a foul mood when one of us is doing something stupid. I think she takes the hit for all the embarrassment none of us ever seem to feel. After a few more minutes of filming Lenny groaning and bellyaching, Jasper decides to end the video. Turning the camera around to face himself, Jasper salutes the audience, saying, "Well, folks, this is what we got up to today.
So, stay out of the way. We're vlogging here. The bed shifts beside me, and I know Lenny sat down as well, leaving all the work to Jasper. My boots really are all right. They got a good scrub-down in the school bathroom.

Luckily, Allison had some body spray in her backpack, so I didn't smell like vomit for the rest of the day. After lunch, Lenny went to the health office and then home. He didn't look good before, but now he's looking chipper as ever. Good thing, too, seeing as this is the only night this week we can do our weekly questions video.
I turn over and watch Jasper bounce from his laptop to his camera, dodging electrical cords as he goes. If it weren't for his video setup, this room would be pretty tidy. We're not the highest quality of video bloggers, yet we're one of the most subscribed-to vlog channels on VlogIt — which also means we've partnered with the site and get paid. We could be a quality vlog channel, but Lenny's laziness, my spending tendencies, and Jasper's fondness for the "kids-next-door" feel keep us doing what we've been doing for three years.
And, thanks to us being laid-back and random, our channel WereVloggingHere has made leaps and bounds since its start. Our success has enabled us to set up meetings with other vloggers and meet-and-greets with our subscribers from across the globe, but in town we aren't well known at all.
To our neighbors, we're just an eccentric group of teens with a camcorder. It does a good job of keeping us grounded. One of the most popular things we do on our channel is answer our subscribers' questions on camera. There's a different theme for each ask, and tonight is Truth or Dare. Lenny stares at him blankly for a second and then bursts out laughing.
