Jamison, an Amazing Kid at American Family Children's Hospital   

Jamison's Story

Jamison Davis of Roscoe, Illinois, was diagnosed at age 19 with Ewing's Sarcoma, a cancer that occurs primarily in the bone or soft tissue.

 American Family Children's Hospital: Kaitlin and Kylie's story  

Kaitlin and Kylie's Story

In some ways, Kaitlin and Kylie Drechsel are just like typical 3-year-old girls. And, like any pair of siblings, they can occasionally be a handful for their mom and dad, Lynn and Jim. What makes the Drechsel's handful overflow at times, however, is that their identical twin girls have cancer. Both of them.
