Additional Comments: Missy was diagnosed with blasto (x-ray of her lungs) on 3-21-08 and died on 4-5-08. At that time, she started with a cough on 3-14-08. Looking back, there were times 6 months prior to her death, that she felt like she had a fever, would cough occasionally and at times would get tired very quickly when playing. She had no other symptons. The blasto only affected her lungs.
