24 Mar Meet the Vallejo Family
In September of 2015, 8-year-old Rachel was rushed to the hospital after she fainted and hit her head on the family kitchen table. Doctors then discovered that she had a large tumor on her brain. In January of this year, doctors were able to remove most of the tumor surgically and Rachel started a high dosage of radiation treatments at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.
After long days spent receiving treatment at the hospital, Rachel and her mom are happy to return to the comforts of our House, their “home-away-from-home.” We often find Rachel and her mom playing games together in our playroom or making beautiful flower arrangements for our dining room.
