Fight like Berks

Twelve-year-old Berkley Samdal, front, poses with her mom, Ronette; her dad, Jeramy; and her sister, Bennett, 10. 

The tears come unbidden as Ronette Samdal recalls that summer day when her 12-year-old daughter, Berkley, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

“It was pretty wild,” Ronette said. “We had no time. She was so critical, we went to the ER, and everything just went really, really fast.”
