2020 Hockey Challenge Kid Captain Heaven Brooks
“I am so thankful for the support RMHC has given to us over the years. They are always there for us and we hold a special place in our hearts for RMHC.” – Lacelin Nordstrom (mom)
In 2016, Heaven was diagnosed with very high-risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at only two years old. Their initial four-month stay at RMHC led to regular visits over the next three years while Heaven was in and out of treatment.
Heaven loves so many things at RMHC including the craft room, animal visits, outdoor playgrounds, musical instruments, and treasure closet! “Instead of focusing on upcoming treatments and painful procedures we can look forward to a fun, comfortable, accessible place to feel at home in…” says mom Lacelin. Today, Heaven is doing well; she is still in treatment after a recent relapse in the summer of 2019.
