Her father, Dan said they’re grateful for cancer research. His family is proof of that, because today, 5-year-old Caroline is cancer-free!
“She’s been considered cancer-free since April. We’re now trying to take advantage. We now went skiing. We’ve gone to Disney World,” said Dan. “Her hair’s back, her smile’s back, she has as much energy as any 5 year old. You would never know what she’s gone through.”
