Even since Chrissy Sturm was diagnosed with AML, the most aggressive form of leukemia, it's been a team battle as her loving family and four young kids rally around mom. Unfortunately, the extensive nature of cancer treatments often means Chrissy has to spend days away from Maddison, Megan, Cydney, Maddox, and hubby Dustin. Try not to tear up as the entire family comes together for hugs after ten long days apart in this heartwarming video.

Join the #STURMSTRONG movement on GoFundMe today and help this brave mom beat leukemia!

You can also support families battling leukemia by buying a 2018 "Motos for a Cause" calendar that is part of RTM's Christian Vera's ongoing fundraising campaign to raise money for leukemia.
