The Scully family knows firsthand the importance of having a world-class pediatric cancer program close to home. That’s because two of their six children have battled the terrible disease. In September 2018, daughter Quincy, now six years old, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. Cancer took a toll on her little body, but she never stopped fighting and was declared cancer-free in late 2019.
Less than two years later, tragedy struck the Scully family again when their daughter Mia, now ten years old, was diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Early in her treatment, Mia and her family moved across the country to Charlotte, NC, where she was transferred to Atrium Health Levine Children’s.
“From very early on, the people at Levine have made Mia feel right at home,” shared Mia’s parents, Courtney and Jeremiah Scully. “We especially appreciate and value the team approach to Mia’s care – oncology, integrative medicine, and Child Life. Dealing with childhood cancer twice, we don’t take that team approach for granted.”
While Mia is still in active treatment, she embraces each day with a smile. And her mighty family is prepared to tackle any obstacles that come their way.
