My Story

Everly was diagnosed with stage 4 High Rick Neuroblastoma on October 20, 2021. It was only two days prior when Everly fell and was rushed to the Children’s Hospital Colorado emergency room. A subsequent CT scan revealed a large mass in her abdomen, and a later biopsy confirmed that it was Neuroblastoma, a solid tumor cancer affecting the sympathetic system. Her tumor is attached to her left adrenal gland near her kidney. A bone marrow biopsy and an MIBG scan showed that the cancer had spread to her bone marrow. High Risk Neuroblastoma is an aggressive and tricky cancer, with an equally aggressive treatment plan. Stage 4 is scary but Everly's cancer is treatable, and we're already seeing progress, but the road is long and terrifying.Everly is a bright, creative, and intelligent girl. She loves playing imaginative play with her older brother where they create fantastic worlds and storylines using anything they can grab from toy cars and the must-have Paw Patrol figurines, to shoe boxes and Legos. She is not only funny and kind, but strong willed and beautiful (with bright blue eyes and a perfect shaped bald head). These are all great traits to have when fighting cancer. At 4.5 years old, she learned how to swallow whole pills as she was determined to not have liquid medicine, and although she says it hurts, she stays still for the numerous needle pokes and port accesses. All these are rare in a preschooler, and everyone is in awe of her bravery and strength. The dog at home knows she's a alpha as she's assertive and knows what she likes and doesn't like. She's an incredible little girl and is so loved. No one messes with Everly, and the cancer picked the wrong girl.
