Pediatric Cancer Awareness: Felicity's Fight

Felicity, who turns six years old in September, has been a patient at Celebration Pediatrics since she was about nine months old. From the beginning, she (and her family) have been nothing but smiles, high-fives, and hugs when she arrives at the office, and like the superstar she is, everyone runs to stop in and say hi.

During the height of the pandemic in December 2020, Felicity fell catastrophically ill, and days from impending death, she was diagnosed with high-risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia. With the help of her family, Felicity began her fight headfirst. Within her 2.5-year battle, she began building her “beads of courage” that grew over 24 feet long! One bead for every procedure, chemo, admission, overnight stay (over 225 nights), ER trips, blood & platelet transfusions, bone marrow biopsies, etc.

Throughout her journey, Felicity had 225 overnight/inpatient days, eight months of missed school (hospital/homebound), 30 transfusions of blood products, 25 radiology procedures (X-ray, MRI, CT, Fluoroscopy), 15 lumbar punctures with anesthesia, 15 emergency room visits, ten holidays and family birthdays inpatient, five pneumonia/respiratory admissions, two times complete hair loss, one walker, one wheelchair, and learned to how to walk again.

Felicity underwent 886 days of chemo and treatment for her illness. Finally, after a long struggle, with many hills and valleys, she could ring her bell in May 2023 — declaring VICTORY over her cancer!
“When I met Felicity as an infant, it was easy to see that she was special. Many children with Down Syndrome are easy to bond with, but Felicity had that extra sparkle. Watching her development progress from infancy to a feisty toddler was so rewarding for us and her family.

She seemed so healthy. After so much progress, it seemed so unfair when she was diagnosed with leukemia. But seeing her in remission and hopefully cured after her long journey with this disease is gratifying. She still has her sparkle. We are grateful for all the clinicians and researchers who have made a previously fatal disease one that is now treatable and curable,” says Dr. Robert Dabrow, MD, FAAP, Medical Director.

The Celebration Pediatrics family couldn’t be more proud or happier to see such a big fight in this little warrior, and she prevailed in the end, but she did it without a shadow of a doubt. We love you, Felicity!

What clients are saying ...

Dr Bob has been seeing my twins since they got out of the NICU and we love him. Very attentive, very nice, knowledgeable and understanding.

We recently moved so now it takes us up to 45 minutes to get there when it used to take us 15 minutes but we’ll never change doctors.

The office is always clean and the staff is super nice, highly recommended

I love Celebration Pediatrics. The office staff is so kind and always willing to accommodate me when I need a last minute appointment or to reschedule. The doctors and nurses are also incredible.

My family loves Dr. Anwer, he is a remarkable doctor. You can tell he is very passionate about his career and genuinely loves his patients which is so important. He doesn’t treat my kids like just another patient but instead takes his time to ask questions and really understand our concerns.

I really could not recommend this office and Doctor enough!

Our daughter said for the first time that she loved going to the doctor and that the doctor was very funny and kind to her, and like a parents made us feel safe, she explained everything to us, the treatment towards us was wonderful, recommended a thousand percent,

Dr. Toma is wonderful. Amazing ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Fantastic doctors, nurses, and staff! Patient, listen, educate, answer every question, and spend adequate time with each patient.

I have found that the doctors at this location are intelligent and educated in a wide realm of topics which makes the experience much richer, especially when it is your first child!

Quick to get patients a visit when needed and we usually don’t wait more than 5-10 min to be seen.

We are very happy and pleased to have found this place for our girls. We have recently moved from another state and the transition to this office was very smooth.

The staff was so helpful in making sure that the needed records for our girls were obtained from our prior provider. Our girls also loved the visit with NP Janil.

Would highly recommend this office.

We had our first newborn appointment at the practice and felt so comfortable. Monica was very easy to talk to and eased some of our little worries as first time parents.

She was patient, sweet, and very knowledgeable!

We left our appointment feeling very secure and with the practice that we chose!
