On June 1, 2010 our two year old, "Little Air Bear," was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Type M7. After enduring 146 days at Primary Children's Hospital, Erin is now in remission and living a full life at home with our family. Her strong will and constant happy smile is an inspiration to us all. Through our difficult circumstances we found great strength and peace in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for checking in on us.

Need a Place to Live

We have some friends here at Primary Children's that have a 6 month old son who was recently diagnosed with AML.  They are recent graduates from BYU-Provo and the mother is nursing the baby so she needs to be with him at the hospital for the next 6-8 months.  They have 3 other children, all girls, ages 6, 5, and 3.  They are looking for a place to stay near Primary Children's so that they can be together as much as possible.  They would like to find a basement apartment that they could rent week by week.  If you or anyone you know can help them out you can contact Michael and Rachel at khallilia@gmail.com.


  1. This news breaks my heart. I seriously started crying when I opened your blog and saw this - 6 months??!! When I hear stories like this, it makes me think that we aren't going through anything at all.

    My sister-in-law and family live just a few minutes away from Primary's. I will have them spread the word in their ward and neighborhood!

  2. 6 months is so young. In fact, there are 2 other families here with babies ages 6 months and 10 months. They are both the first child in the family, and the families both happen to live in UofU Married Housing. How crazy is that!

  3. Jill, my inlaws have a guest house but it's tiny (one bed and a mini fridge). Dani Prince has stayed there once before. I don't think it would be a permanent solution, but the mom could stay until they find somewhere. Have them email me if they are interested.
