This dance was premiered at the 2014 Ft. Wayne Dance For All during its fundraiser workshop and is dedicated to 14 year-old Leukemia patient, Daisie Hilborn, from Montgomery, Texas. She is the granddaughter of well-loved couple’s dancer Bob Wheatley from Willis, Texas. On June 13, 2013, Daisie was diagnosed and treated for AML Leukemia. She went into remission and was able to go home in October, 2013. However, after just a few months, Daisie’s heart function rapidly decreased. She returned to Texas Children’s Hospital to discover the chemo had damaged her heart. She had open heart surgery to install a pump and will possibly still need a heart transplant. Daisie and her family are very thankful for your prayers and support as her medical journey continues. Follow Daisie’s journey on facebook at “Praying for Daisie Hilborn”.
