Amber Wise never imagined that her 5-year-old son Josiah would one day be diagnosed with leukemia.
“He was complaining that his legs hurt,” Wise said. “It kept getting worse, and so we took him to the local hospital in Spokane, but they couldn’t figure out what was wrong with him.”
Finally, after running several blood tests, Wise received a call informing her that her son had acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
“When we found out he had cancer, I felt like I hit the bottom of the barrel,” Wise said.
