After two bone marrow transplants this little girl is still singing and smiling
What a perfect example of believing in something and never giving up. Leah is a 5 year old with Severe Congenital Neutropenia.
Severe Congenital Neutropenia is a rare genetic disorder with a deficiency of neutrophils in the bone marrow. Neutrophils are a type of white blood cells that help in curing inflammation.
People with a lack of neutrophils often have recurrent infections due to the lack of white bloods cells to help stop inflammation.
The caption of the video says:
"She's an overcomer. Septic shock, two bone marrow transplants, graft vs. host disease and 325 days away from home in the hospital. God is so good to us through it all and Leah is proof of his mercy and grace! I do not own the rights to this song."
This young girl is fighting hard to win these battles! She had her 1st bone marrow transplant on 2/7/14 and her 2nd on 3/29/16.
She is currently recovering from GVHD. Two bone marrow transplants in 2 years is a lot to go through for one little girl.
It is videos like this that should remind ourselves to be grateful for what we have, because many people are struggling with a lot harder battles.
Many people take for granted what we already have in the world, when many other people have it a lot more difficult.
It is okay to want more, but always be thankful for your wonderful life on this planet. This video really showed me all of that!
