It is now two years since they began the treatment and the girls are doing well. They have just begun school.

During the last two years, the children underwent powerful chemotherapy. Presently, they are in the maintenance stage which involves daily treatment in a milder form.

The parents are looking forward to some normalcy in their lives after the big ordeal.
