MEET ADELYNN MOODY
Adelynn’s story through the eyes of her mother, Briget: Adelynn is a beautiful, vibrant, goofy, smart and fierce young girl that unfortunately has had to fight more than half her young life. Adelynn was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 5, just 6 months before starting Kindergarten. She endured chemotherapy treatments, bone marrow biopsies, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, spinal taps, and all of the at-home medication that comes with the treatment of this disease. She was a true fighter through it all! Adelynn endured about two and a half years of treatment, when she finally became cancer free! The day was finally here! She rang the bell at Maine Children’s Cancer Program Clinic. She could enjoy just being a kid again, being able to ride her bike, have play dates and regain some energy.
Unfortunately, Adelynn relapsed in March of 2020 at the age of 8 years old. She was in the middle of her second-grade school year, and it was the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. It was almost harder to hear the second time knowing that your baby girl is going to have to go through it all again. It just wasn’t fair. Adelynn had to go straight to Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital in Portland, Maine. Days turned into months. BBCH became home away from home. The worst part was not being able to have visitors due to the Covid-19 virus. It was so scary knowing how sick my little girl was and feeling so alone. Her treatment this time around has been even more intense. Adelynn has had multiple kinds of intense, grueling chemotherapy treatments, bone marrow biopsies, blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, spinal taps and many medications around the clock. Her first Medi-port that was surgically placed became infected within the first couple months.
