The family of 7-year-old Harper received the news back in February that their daughter had been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, and treatments were started right away in Westchester.

Although her long-term prognosis is hopeful, she is facing over two years of treatments and hospitalizations. Parents Joe and Tiffany will be taking turns caring for Harper along with her 4 siblings at home during the process.
