Pablove Across America 2011 Day 16 Morning Dedication: Caroline Churchill and Lilly Mendoza

Caroline is 3 years old and from Charlotte, North Carolina. Caroline was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in March 2011. She was considered an intermediate risk candidate as part of a Children's Oncology Group study on Nelarabine and will finish the delayed intensification phase of chemo in early November. Her maintenance phase will end in July 2013. Lilly Mendoza is 2 years old and from Winston-Salem, North Carolina. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on December 18, 2009. Lilly's mom brought her to the doctor when her eye was swelling. At first, doctors through she had pinkeye but when antibiotics didn't clear it up her actual diagnosis was discovered. Lilly's grandfather Mark just rode from Philadelphia to Texas (2400 miles!) to raise money for Livestrong and raise awareness of childhood cancer.
