ATLANTA -- Robert Hart has rosy cheeks and a beautiful smile.
And one day his mom noticed he seemed tired, pale. The diagnosis was leukemia and his parents were devastated and paralyzed, initially.
They began the grueling process of chemotherapy, spinal taps, hospital stays and family separations.
Through all of it, Robert did not lose his smile.
Today, he is in the maintenance phase of his treatment, and he is back at school.
And something else, Robert Hart is 8 years old Friday.
Happy Birthday Robert, CURE's kid of the week!
