Liliana Cordova is 6-years-old and has a rare form of leukemia.

She is Philadelphia chromosome-positive, a frequency of less than 5-percent making her high risk.

The good news is Liliana is responding to her treatment.

Her mother Heather had to leave her job to focus on Lily's recovery, which left the family with only one income and medical expenses that continue to rise.

As Liliana has been in and out of hospital treatment, she's taken up a new hobby. She's learned to play the piano.

Well, word got out to Cordogan's Pianoland in Geneva about Liliana's new favorite hobby. They presented her with a baby grand piano - with no cost to the family.

They hope it brings her joy during this struggle in her life.
