Brooklyn Grace Galvan, six, demonstrates the power of support and resilience.
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Brooklyn Grace Galvan, six, demonstrates the power of support and resilience. Galvan was diagnosed with leukemia in June and is a fighter against childhood cancer. However, Galvan’s spirit has never wavered in her battle with the disease.
“I love my doctors because they fight the bad guys in my body,” Galvan said.
But the support for Galvan and kids like her doesn’t stop there. dr. Catherine Boston of Driscoll Children’s Hospital said love goes both ways.
“We love our patients,” Boston said. “It’s more than a job for us. We get to be part of their lives for a long time and they become a family to us.”
Galvan’s mother said the community’s unwavering support has helped her immensely.
“I’ve had so many local moms reach out to me and say it’s going to be okay, and I just have to say the same,” Galvan’s mom said.
Cancer is a diagnosis that no individual can handle on their own. Galvan and her family have had nothing less than complete love and support during this time.
