Story of Brighid Cloonan as told by Brighid
My name is Brighid May Cloonan. I’m 9 yrs. old. My Daddy is in the Navy. My Mommy stays at home taking care of me and our house. We have four cats: Samhain, Yule, Sassy, and Kitty.
I like to do craft projects with Mommy. We make jewelry, paint and color, and make dream catchers. Sometimes we sell what we make. We like to sing together.
Daddy and I cuddle on the sofa and watch movies. Sometimes we read together. Sometimes we play board or card games.
I like to play with my Barbies. I also play with my baby dolls. Sometimes I play outside with my friends. I want to be a police officer when I grow up.
I was diagnosed with leukemia in April of 2022. The doctors call it AML. I have been in the hospital since I received my diagnosis. So far I have had two rounds of chemotherapy, several bone marrow biopsies, and two lumbar punctures. I’m in the middle of my 2nd round of chemotherapy. I have one more round of chemotherapy to go through before I head to Philadelphia, PA for my bone marrow transplant. Three months in the hospital so far. At least three more months to go. I celebrated my 9th birthday in the hospital. I can’t wait to go home.”
