The month of August brings back memories for me when I was a kid and my Mom hurriedly racing around buying me a few new items of clothing so I could at least look appropriate when going back to school. Well, kids aren’t the only ones that can get a new look in the “back to school” month…
Making a move to a new house is the perfect way to a
new look. Unfortunately, the current marketplace has many doubting the possibilities or hesitant to buy in what many consider to be uncertain times. I heard just this morning on the radio that almost 40% of American’s are
doubting the American Dream is a possibility. #coreychambers

Why I Support Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles
I grew up right here in Los Angeles. Born right nearby at St. Francis Hospital. I remember when I first heard about a young person close to our family suffering from a nasty disease and getting treated for that at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. It was then that I began to pay closer attention to the work they do at that hospital. Since then, I have learned that it is a collection of hard-working health care professionals, most making their home right here in the Los Angeles area, all coming together for a common cause. That cause is to help young people overcome unfortunate health issues that life sometimes throws our way. Being a Los Angeles area, California native, I take pride in supporting in any way that I can the good work these people do at Children’s. My team rallies around our annual goal of raising money and donating portions of our income to help Children’s in their quest to heal young people when they need healing. My team and I are committed to providing outstanding results for buyers and sellers referred to us by our past clients. I have discovered that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles shares similar commitments to their patients. And since their services survive on sponsorships and donations we are happy to contribute and proud to support them.
Following is the story of a patient so young and so undaunted by her cancer that she compels us to want to face our adversities more bravely.
Hazel’s Slice of Life
The Internet’s ‘Pizza Girl’ bites back at cancer
Hazel Hammersley, a usually bubbly toddler, was clearly in pain. She also had a fever, had stopped eating and was very lethargic. Lauren Hammersley’s motherly instincts told her that something just wasn’t right.
“I took her to the pediatrician the day after I first noticed Hazel had stopped eating or drinking,” Lauren says. “Something told me it was cancer.”
Her doctor told Lauren to get Hazel, who was 2 years old at the time, to the Emergency Department at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles right away. Lauren’s worst fears were confirmed; a tumor was found in Hazel’s abdomen, and it was diagnosed as neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma is the most common solid tumor found outside of the brain in children and accounts for about 15 percent of deaths from childhood cancer. There are around 1,000 new cases per year in the United States and, despite advances in therapy and supportive care, about half of the children with aggressive tumors will die from their disease.
“In hindsight, I’m so thankful that doctors at CHLA diagnosed her so quickly,” Lauren adds. Neuroblastoma often spreads to other parts of the body before any symptoms are apparent, and the majority of children aren’t diagnosed until their cancer has spread.
Hazel’s cancer was at stage 3. The news was overwhelming, but there was hope. Lauren knew that a lot of the toughest cases of neuroblastoma were treated at CHLA.
“CHLA did an amazing job in the first few days. The doctors, nurses. Child Life team, social workers—everyone was so supportive.”
Still, Lauren was scared. With four children to care for—her youngest child was 5 months old at the time—she says the prospect of Hazel’s treatment seemed “insurmountable.” Within days, her daughter began the first of what would be five rounds of chemotherapy to shrink the tumor prior to surgery.
Four months later, surgeons at CHLA removed a softball-sized mass from Hazel’s abdomen in a daylong procedure, eliminating nearly 98 percent of cancer, a millimeter at a time. The remaining live cancer was still deeply concerning, so she had to go through one more round of chemotherapy in preparation for a stem cell transplant—in the hopes of eliminating any resistant tumor.n the following months, the Hammersley family experienced a lot of ups and downs, including a couple of months of rehabilitation as Hazel learned how to walk and talk again after the transplant. However, she took it in great stride and made the most of her time at the hospital.I
“If you ask the nurses, they would say she was hardly in her room,” says Lauren. “She would play hide-and-seek with them, sit on the bottom of her IV pole and ride it up and down the hallway.
Aside from those occasional days where she wasn’t feeling well, she had a lot of spunk during her treatment.”
On one occasion, Hazel took full advantage of this spunk when she and her grandmother decided to spell out “Send Pizza Rm 4112” on her hospital window as a fun project. Soon, the sign, which faced Sunset Boulevard, attracted passersby and was eventually posted on the community website Reddit. Generous people began to send pizza to the hospital for Hazel to enjoy. She was dubbed “Pizza Girl” by the internet.
Although Hazel has fond memories of the hospital, nothing beats going home. And we’re glad to say that for over a year, Hazel has been at home, doing well and currently showing no signs of cancer. She is back to being like any other 4-year-old who loves to sing, dance, play dress-up and go to preschool, and wonders what she wants to be when she grows up. But as much as Hazel seems like a normal kid, she understands that she’s not; she understands how amazing it is to beat cancer.
“She was standing in the bathroom one day and yelled for me to come over,” says Lauren. “She says to me, ‘Mom, I just love my scar. It’s so important to me, because it means my neuroblastoma is all gone.’”
