Watch: Angels for Hannah

A A

Christmas may have come and gone for most of us, but today was Christmas Day for a Vancouver Island four-year-old girl and her family.

Hannah Day has been in and out of hospital half her life battling two forms of cancer, a battle that she will only be able to beat with your help.

As a two-year-old, Hannah developed a protruding belly.

It was initially diagnosed as bad posture or digestive trouble, but doctors eventually discovered something far worse.

She had Rabdomyocarcoma, an extremely rare form of cancer.

But 15 months of chemotherapy helped Hannah beat all odds and in October, the family thought she was home-free.

The Make-A-Wish foundation even organized them a trip to Disney World.

Just before leaving, routine blood work revealed Hannah had developed Leukemia.

Hannah’s organs are slowing down and she has trouble walking.

Her only option now is a stem-cell transplant, something she will need within a few months.

Nobody in the family is a perfect match, so they created a web page called Angels for Hannah to solicit donors.

For more information on Hannah’s battle, including how you can find out if you’re a donor match for Hannah, go to http://angelsforhannah.com.
