So honored to present Johanna with her "Smile" today! Johanna was diagnosed with Leukemia when she was 8 years old, and fought very hard. She just turned 18 years old and is fighting once again as the Leukemia has returned. She recently had surgery for an infection in her leg as well due to treatments, but she has come back strong from that surgery and is still fighting.
Johanna wanted a day out with her Mom, so we took them on special girls day out to get their nails done, then lunch at The Cheesecake Factory, then a shopping spree at The Streets of Southpoint Mall. Such a sweet, beautiful young lady, who truly deserved this day after all she has been through! Thanks to all our supporters who made this day possible!!!Shopping Spree
