Faith was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma at age 11. Now 14 years old, Faith is cancer free and back to living her life. She even wrote a letter to her 11 year old self, letting them know everything will be okay: "Dear 11-year-old me,..."

When Isa was just two years-old, she was diagnosed with leukemia. From her initial hospital stay, to treatments and follow-up appointments, Isa and her family always felt a special bond with the staff at Cottage Children’s Medical Center.

With over 40 subspecialties, Cottage Children's Medical Center physicians care for kids with health challenges of all kinds. Often, long and complicated terms make diseases sound scarier than they really are. Our doctors from CCMC help unravel these mysterious words.
