My Story

Alexes was taken to her local pediatric doctor on 1/5/15 for a low grade fever and rapid breathing. Her doctor thought she had pneumonia and sent her to local ER. From there they sent us to children's where they did an xray and ct. And from there our perfect world was rocked. They told us what they thought was lung was actually a tumor and that the right lung was collapsed. From there we were sent to picu and the following day she was sedated, a drain tube and breathing tube placed. She had biopsies done which came back as localized Ewing sarcoma and was atttatched to the 3rd right rib. It was aproximently 11x9. She spent the next 6 days sedated in picu. Chemo started while she was still sedated. She had 4 5 day cycles of chemo 2 3 day cycles and 5 clinic chemos then on April 20th she had her local control surgery. The tumor was removed along with 3 1/2 ribs and 1/4 rib removed. The pathology report indicated tumor had no viable life and she had clear margins. Her chemo will continue haveing 8 5 day cycles 3 2 day cycles and 5.clinic visit cycles to finish off her treatment. Though she has been through so much at only 4 she continues to smile and sing and dance. She also started up a movie collection for the hospital. She is true inspiration to everyone and our hero!
