Dec. 12, 2016 – Jackson, WI – Some high-profile exposure for 11-year-old Bailey Dove of Jackson who appeared in Monday’s Aaron Rodgers 12 Days of Christmas campaign.
Aside from being featured on Aaron Rodgers 12 Day of Christmas Facebook page, there was also a full-page ad taken out in the Monday edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The ad said Bailey was a 6th grader at Silverbrook Intermediate School in West Bend.
She was diagnosed with high risk acute lymphoblastic leukemia in Mach, 2015.
Her identical twin sister, Lily, was diagnosed with leukemia 21 months before that.
This tragic scenario prompted her mom to say “With Lily, we feared the unknown. With Bailey, we feared the known.”
The phrase “lightning doesn’t strike twice” comes to mind, but it clearly does at times.
Bailey is being treated under the care of Medical College of Wisconsin and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Physicians with a 108-week chemotherapy regimen in the MACC Fund Center at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin Physicians where her sister Lily is also seen having completed her treatment in August, 2015.
Bailey lives by the phrase her sister coined – “fight like a girl.” Bailey has an older sister, Maddie, who has provided great support for her younger sisters.
Bailey likes Reading, Math and Language. She enjoys softball and music along with special family time. The Brewers and the Packers are her teams and Aaron Rodgers is her favorite player.
Baily is the designer of the 40th Anniversary 2016 TODAY’S TIM4 MACC*Star. Lily, a member of the Aaron Rodgers’ 12 Days of Christmas Class of 2014, designed the 2014 MACC*Star.
This prompted her mom to comment, “The MACC Fund has offered great support opening doors to allow us to help others. The kids enjoy seeing people helping the MACC Fund to help kids’ treatment.”
