She is a high energy, avid and incredible soccer player that is very involved with her community. She recently fell ill with a final diagnosis of Luekemia. Poppy underwent bone marrow testing recently to confirm the diagnosis, and is now undergoing treatments including an agressive round of chemo-therapy. She will need to stay in Vancouver for many weeks or months to come. Poppy is looking at 2 years of treatments and a long road, travelling back and forth with her parent's Jenny and George.
