I was 4. Im now 26. I had treatments for 5 years. In the beginning after i was sent home from the hospital, it was every week for treatments. Having to do blood tests, bone marrows and spinal taps. Then it moved to every month, to every other month, to 3 months, to 6 months, to a year then done. Been cancer free since!!
