Purcellville Community rallies for mother and daughter battling cancer

© Leesburg Today - 11/25/2015

For the Rubin family of Purcellville, this past summer began much like every other summer -- their kids swam in the pool, played with friends and they went on a family vacation in July.

However, while on vacation, they noticed something did not seem right with their 7-year-old daughter Iliana. Her skin color was off, she was very tired and complained her legs hurt when walking.

Her parents, Gina and Josh, took her to a doctor when they returned. After many tests and exams the results were not what they expected -- Iliana had leukemia.

Fortunately, leukemia is treatable and the prognosis is good. But the journey and treatment process to eliminate the cancer is not easy.
