Back­ground:

In late 2017, Lib­er­ty and Aaron Smart of Vic­to­ria had their life turned com­plete­ly upside down. Their very active, healthy and beau­ti­ful 5 year old daugh­ter, Adaea was trans­port­ed to BC Children’s Hos­pi­tal and diag­nosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) on Decem­ber 17th, 2017. Adaea spent 20 weeks in hos­pi­tal under­go­ing aggres­sive chemother­a­py treat­ments with her mom Lib­er­ty by her side while her dad Aaron and her 3 year old broth­er Alden vis­it­ed back and forth. On May 11th, 2018 Adaea and fam­i­ly were dis­charged and back in Vic­to­ria get­ting back into the rou­tine of day to day life. In June and July, Adaea’s check ups at BC Children’s Hos­pi­tal went well and her team of doc­tors were hap­py with how she was pro­gress­ing. Adaea was enjoy­ing her sum­mer swim­ming, attend­ing sum­mer camps includ­ing Camp Good­times and spend­ing lots of qual­i­ty time with fam­i­ly and friends. Unfor­tu­nate­ly just last week, Adaea relapsed with AML and is back at BC Children’s Hos­pi­tal where she has already under gone one round of chemother­a­py. The treat­ment plan this round will involve more aggres­sive chemo and a bone mar­row trans­plant and they are expect­ed to be in Van­cou­ver for approx­i­mate­ly 6 months. As with the last round, Adaea has yet again been so strong and brave and is tru­ly an inspi­ra­tion to any­one she meets.
