Meet Kelly O'Brien.
In December of 2010, Kelly was diagnosed with AML - a very aggressive for of Leukemia which required an even more aggressive form of treatment.
Immediately following her diagnosis Kelly needed emergency surgery to remove her spleen. Following the surgery, Kelly began treatment and soon became very, very ill. She spent several weeks in the PICU before her condition started to improve.
After only a few rounds of intense chemo, Kelly's cancer was in remission. She completed her chemo treatment in June of 2011. Despite the severity of her illness, Kelly never let it get her down. At that time, she was focused on getting better for her junior prom - a goal she achieved with her from her team at Albany Med.
Now in college at Siena, Kelly continues to share her story as her way of thanking the team at the Children's Hospital.
The Children's Hospital includes the Capital Region's ONLY pediatric intensive care unit. Approximately 1,500 children are treated annually in the PICU.
