About the Book

After dancing the night away at her parents wedding, 3 year old Alayna Numbers awoke the next day covered in strange bruising all over her body. A rare, life threatening diagnosis of Severe Aplastic Anemia was given. Her parents had to quickly decide the best possible treatment for her recovery. As Alayna's condition was only getting worse, her parents made the decision that a bone marrow transplant would be her best option to live a full and healthy life as her 1 year old brother was a matched donor. Through ups and downs along the way, Alayna proved her strength and the family never lost hope.


About the Author

Ashley Numbers started writing a journal throughout her daughters diagnosis and recovery of Severe Aplastic Anemia. She found that the writing helped her emotionally and thought it would be something for her daughter to look back on as well. As a mother, Ashley feared for her daughter's future with this horrible, rare disease. When she realizes how well her daughter's recovery was going, she wanted to inform others that even though there is darkness, it cannot stay dark forever. There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope. Ashley is a stay at home mom who currently resides in a small town, Bolivar, Ohio. She is happily married and has 2 beautiful children. Ashley's current mission is to spread awareness to her daughters rare disease, known as Aplastic Anemia and share her story with others who are facing the same predicament of uncertainty.
