My Story

Our story really begins when Corrie complained of a tummy ache for two or three days. I really thought she might be getting the stomach flu as Emy, her little cousin, had the flu the week before. She underwent 9 months of surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation. Nothing seemed to keep her down. Even on her sickest days, she wanted to play and visit all her friends in the hospital. There was never a boring day at the hospital when Corrie was around. Perhaps her strong will was part of her success story. Today, Corrie is a highly energetic little girl who loves life to its fullest. She runs everywhere she goes. She loves horses, cats, and dogs. She loves to learn, but not in the classroom. She loves to experience learning hands on with real stuff. She likes to be in charge and is aware of what goes on around her. She continually prays for all her friends she met while in treatment at University of New Mexico Children's hospital.
