Lyric Alana Frizzell is the daughter of Crystal Singleton and Corey Frizzell. Her first name given to her in honor of the Frizzell family musical heritage. On July 28th, 2009, we received the most devasting news of our lives. Lyric was diagnosed with an aggressive, rare form of AML Leukemia at 10 months old. In fact, she is the only person in history to have this newly discovered cancer. Lyric is now being treated at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in Nashville, TN. After enduring six months of chemo, Lyric is in what’s called a partial remission, which simply means that she has responded well to the chosen treatment, but must frequent the Vanderbilt Cancer Clinic once a month for the next four years to continue to treat and monitor her progress. She has a high chance of a relapse the first two years after chemo but if she can reach the five year mark with no relapse, she will be declared in full remission. This is a continued journey for Lyric and her family. Learn more about Lyric at:
