In Loving Memory of
Anna Charles Hollis
(1/3/2012 - 9/16/2018)
Sunshine. Princesses. Smiles. Kisses. Hugs. Cotton Candy. Spunky. Determined. Dancing. Singing. Daddy’s girl. All of those
words (and more), describe Anna Charles Hollis, known as “AC” to many who loved her. After a routine tonsillectomy,
six-year-old Anna Charles’ health began to deteriorate. Severe knee and back pain drove her family to the emergency room
where on April 15 they were devastated by the news that Anna Charles had Acute Myleoid Leukemia (AML). Three days
after her diagnosis, a mass of AML cells was discovered on her spine. After four rounds of chemo, Anna Charles relapsed
and began preparing for radiation and a bone marrow transplant. Unfortunately, her body began to shut down before the
transplant could be scheduled. On Sept. 16, 2018, Anna Charles passed away with many friends and family members by her
side. She is survived by her father, Benji Hollis, her mother, LeeAnna Hollis, and her 4-year-old sister, Everlee Hollis. She will
be dearly missed.
CANCER KILLS MORE CHILDREN THAN ANY OTHER DISEASE.
More needs to be done to accelerate research and treatment.
Of childhood patients will
have long-lasting chronic
conditions from treatment.
Years there have been over 10 different iPhone models
created and released. Yet, for many childhood cancers, the
same treatments from the 1970’s continue with no change or
children in the U.S. will be
diagnosed with cancer by the
time they are 20 years old.
Amount of the annual budget
childhood cancer research
receives from the National
Estimated new cases of
cancer every year affecting
children under the age of 20
worldwide. That’s almost 700
new kids affected every day.
The leading cause of death
by disease in children under
the age of 19 in the U.S.
Is not one disease. It is made
up of more than 12 types and
over 100 Subtypes.
