As you all know, we have recently launched The Secret Garden Project where we provide Dream Shoots for children fighting life threatening illnesses!
 

We style and design a photo/video  shoot around each child's dream and then provide images and a making of video to the family free of charge.
 

I would like you to meet Olivia our very first young lady to join The Secret Garden Family!

This is Olivia's Story as told by her mom:
 

In July on 2013, Olivia was an active 4 year old. She loved most playing with friends, dance, soccer and yoga. One evening she spiked a high fever, we went to the doctor and they thought it was a virus. Long story short, she had fevers for 40 days around the clock, she was dying. Finally, the results of her bone marrow biopsy came back, the doctors had the news parents never want to hear: Olivia has Leukemia. Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This is the most common kind of childhood cancer, and luckily one of the most treatable. The treatment plan is 2.5 years for girls. Olivia is doing most of her treatment outpatient, but has spent a total of 31 days in the hospital. Countless trips to the ER. Nine months of extensive chemotherapy, which kept her out of Preschool and was almost daily trips to UNMH's Infusion Unit. Olivia's chemotherapy included IV, spinal and oral chemotherapy. Through it all, the family is so thankful for the endless support of family, friends and strangers. It is truly amazing to see how people want to help kids with cancer. We are very happy to report Olivia will be done with her chemotherapy on October 31st 2015! They think the leukemia is gone! She was able to attend Kindergarten and is now in 1st grade  She will continue monthly labs to make sure it does not come back after chemotherapy. I have nicknamed my daughter “Warrior Princess” she is truly a warrior and my hero!
