Patient of the Month: Leslie

Published on: 04/26/2014

Nine months after first being diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), Leslie Rodriguez is getting back to being a healthy, happy kid. She's in school and accumulating honors happily. It's a stark difference from June 2013 when her world was turned upside down the day she found out she had cancer. Her six months of treatment at Nicklaus Children's Hospital had ups and downs, but Leslie and her family had faith that the doctors here would make her better.
