Mila's treatment includes chemotherapy and is planned to end in April 2019.

In her spare time, Mila loves to do arts & crafts, dance, dramatic play, gymnastics and dress-up.

She has an older sister, Olivia, 6.

Mila currently attends pre-school.

The Jimmy Fund Clinic has become the family's second home. They feel that the staff,  doctors, and other families have a deep understanding of what each other is going through.
