My daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia (ALL) on October 29, 2013. She had just turned 4 years old in September. From the the day of the diagnosis, we were told by doctors and nurses about all the complications and side effects that could very possibly happen, including hair loss, mood swings, blood and platelet transfusions, organ damage; it was a lot of negative things that no parent wants to hear.
Treatment started the following day and we immediatly noticed a change in her energy levels, mood, and hair. My daughter was not the same anymore; all she would do is lay in bed, take lots of naps, and not have much of an appetite. Her blood levels were very low and they have to be at a certain level to get chemo started, so she had to have one blood transfusion and two platelet infusions.
On November 23, 2013, we were given the NutriBullet by our family. We had seen the infomercial days before on TV and we were very intrigued by one of the testimonials from a woman with Leukemia. Her story gave us new hope! Immediatley after we got the NutriBullet, I started making my daughter a smoothie every day and, within a couple of days, we noticed a huge difference in her. I got my daughter back! My Lorraine was playful, energetic, with a normal appetite, laughing and playing with her older brother. I was so thankful and happy that the smoothies were making her feel and look better. We also noticed that they were reducing her hair loss. Now, when it's time for another round of chemo and they do her blood work, she always qualifies. My daughter even has better blood levels than I do!
The doctors and nurses are amazed at how great she looks. They say, "Wow, she didn't lose her hair," "Her skin looks good," or "She looks so healthy." Every chance I get, I tell parents about the NutriBullet and, seeing the huge difference it has made for my daughter, I let them know they should definitely give it a try.
Thank you, NutriBullet! We dont go a day without you. :)
