When Leni was just three months old, she be­came se­ri­ously ill. Her pe­di­a­tri­cian didn’t know why— but she knew who would. The pe­di­atric spe­cial­ists at NewYork-Pres­by­te­rian di­ag­nosed Leni with a rare form of leukemia — but that was just the be­gin­ning. Be­fore Leni was dis­charged, she’d un­der­gone seven life-sav­ing pro­ce­dures, in­clud­ing chemo­ther­apy, a liver trans­plant, and gall blad­der surgery. In all, it took 10 doc­tors, 20 nurses, and two NewYork-Pres­by­te­rian hos­pi­tals to get Leni where she is to­day: a happy, healthy three-year-old.
