Desstinn's Story

My name is Amoree Brown. My 22 month old daughter was diagnosed with AML Leukemia on May 16th, 2023. She is currently inpatient at MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital in Charleston SC. She has been inpatient since her diagnosis in May. Just 3 days after her diagnosis she experienced internal bleeding from the lung and had a cardiac arrest. Desstinn spend 38 days on life support. She was also in an induced coma and an induced paralysis. Desstinn stayed in the PICU for almost 4 months and has returned to PICU more than once due to infections. Desstinn has completed 4 rounds of chemotherapy. Our hope is to get the level of leukemia in her body to less than 2% so she can undergo a bone marrow transplant. We have not been able to so far but we have hope. Through everything Desstinn has been a trooper and a fighter. She is always happy, smiling and dancing. She is not letting the cancer get her down. Although we were not prepared for this journey, we are on it and we will never give up. We as a family rely on our faith to get us through. We are by Desstinn’s side at all times. Dad is no longer working so that combined with the extra financial responsibilities that have arisen from Desstinn’s leukemia diagnosis have put a huge strain on our finances which in turn has put a big strain on us emotionally. Thank you for helping Desstinn have a happy Christmas.
