In the spring of 2003, Drs. Michael and Eileen Lauzardo were faced with an unprecedented life situation. Before their infant daughter Keira, had her first birthday, tragedy struck. Both their son and Keira, were simultaneously diagnosed with two different types of leukemia. Their son survived his cancer but 17-month-old Keira did not. It is this experience that propelled the Lauzardos to form Keira Grace Foundation.
