My Story

Jocelyn is 7 years old, has 3 older brothers & daughter of Jocivus & Raquel Lopez. She was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in September 2019. Her leukemia was progressing fast so treatment was started right away. She had a very long & difficult start. She had to be put on a ventilator 3 times during her 6 weeks in the Pediatric ICU. She finally improved enough to be moved to the children’s oncology floor where she stayed off & on for the next 6 months of treatment. During that time she had to have her port replaced due to continuous infections. She started her maintenance phase in late May, during that time she’s had a few infections that has put her in the hospital for a few weeks each time. Due to her compromised immune system the family has been in isolation for quite some time now. Her parents are very grateful & blessed to have an amazing community come together to show their support for her. She is truly a blessing & a fighter. They still have a long road ahead but with God’s strength they can get through it together. Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure.
