A five-year-old girl has crossed a major finish line in her fight against leukemia. She rang the bell at Golisano Children’s Hospital to signify the end of her chemotherapy treatments after being diagnosed two years ago.

Five-year-old Autumn Spassatempo was diagnosed with leukemia in January 2020, just before the pandemic hit. She has been fighting for more than two years.

On Wednesday, the shy five-year-old celebrated with family and the nurses and doctors who helped her break out of her shell.

Autumn’s parents said they are thankful and hopeful for their daughter’s future. Autumn and her brother Brennan gave us two thumbs up.

“Super excited to be done with everything, except for her port. She still has to get that removed, but I don’t even know how to put it in words really,” said Autumn’s mom Tiffany Trivett.

When asked if she was happy to be done with chemotherapy treatments, Autumn nodded yes.

Her parents, Christopher and Tiffany, want to help and be a resource for other families who may be in the same fight. You can connect with the family or follow Autumn’s journey by clicking here.

Once the family left the hospital on Wednesday, they grabbed some celebratory ice cream.
