Norma is 1 of 6 children, raised on a farm in Culbertson, Montana surrounded by her siblings, cousins and grandparents. Norma started having leg pain May 4, 2023,
her to miss the rest of the school year and undergo lots of testing, pokes, doctors and ER visits. After multiple diagnoses and none fitting the actual diagnosis, mom Kristin pushed for more testing, more answers. Our local doctor was the one to take us
seriously and finally run the tests we needed to get the right answers. The blood smear came back positive for leukemia on June 8, 2023. We were headed to a family funeral when we got the call that no parent wants: that our child had cancer. I pushed and got an appointment with a child oncologist who confirmed it was leukemia. Norma spent the first 10 days admitted in the hospital 8 hours from home with mom and dad, while Norma underwent
treatments and surgery. We have spent the last 4 months traveling to doctors for treatment or living in the Ronald McDonald House. Norma will undergo treatment for the next 2 years or more.Norma's Journey
