Meet Bubbie’s Family

Written by his mom, Maribel

Bubbie was diagnosed at 8 months old with AML (acute myeloid leukemia). He went through 5 rounds of chemo before he made the list for transplant. It was long inpatient hospital stays.

We then headed to Stanford for another round of chemo that would completely wipe him out. Our oldest daughter, Myah, was a perfect 100% match to our Bubbie. We went through transplant process, and Bubbie made it through it all. He is strong, brave, and a WARRIOR.

Bubbie is a year out Post Transplant. He is the Light to Our Family. 💛🧡🎗🙏🏽

Hearts of Hope to this day mails my family birthday and holiday cards that put such a big smile on our faces. 💛 From our family, we are beyond thankful for you guys. 🙏🏽
