~Carissa and Crystal- June 1999~

This is me and my little buddy Carissa. I met her in July 1996 when we were in the Childrens Hospital at Dartmouth. She was first diagnosed with AML leukemia at 17 months. She went into remission, but had several more relapses over the next 3 years.

In July 1998, Make a Wish Foundation of New Hampshire her and her parents to Disney World where Carissa met 'the real Winnie the Pooh.' She talked of her 'wish trip' till the day she died.

In September 1998, Carissa had a bone marrow transplant in Boston Childrens Hospital where she spent several months recovering. April 1999 Carissa relaped again, but this time the doctors couldn't do anything for her. She knew she was dying, so the 4 year old spent the last 5 months of her life doing everything she wanted to do from shopping trips to Walmart and Toys R Us, to going to church or just
watching the Disney channel. Carissa was a fighter. She didn't want to give up.

But on September 29, 1999 God saw fit to take Carissa to heaven. She isn't in pain. She has a new body. She is happy there. I love her and I miss her, but I know that someday I will see her again.

At her funeral the verse they chose for her was II Timothy 4:7-8
I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness.
