House Notes | May 2022
In 2017, Reese Felderman was diagnosed with juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia (JMML) and soon relocated to San Francisco from Winnetka, IL for most of 2018 and 2019. After a lengthy battle against her disease, the family was able to move back home and Reese was able to live the life of a normal 8-year-old.

Now in recovery, she’s an active tennis and golf player! She even held a summer lemonade stand and raised $10,000 her first weekend to put towards leukemia research at the UCSF. Hear the family’s story from her mother, Jennifer.
