My Story

Jensen was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma in December of 2007. He was given a 35% survival rate. He initially underwent 6 rounds of chemo, 12 radiation treatments, multiple surgeries, stem cell transplant, and 6 months of oral chemo. He relapsed 3 months later forcing him to undergo 4 more high dose rounds of chemo, more surgery, and was on maintenance antibody therapy. While on this treatment, he developed a brain tumor requiring more surgery, more chemo and radiation, and more antibody treatments. He grew up in the hospital and was extremely wise and knowledgeable of cancer life. He rarely ever stopped smiling and was extremely passionate about anything with Luigi and the Super Mario brothers. He mastered every game he played and enjoyed playing in full Luigi costume. He used his knowledge of the nintendo games to calm him during painful procedures and treatments. He made everyone he came in contact with smile with compassion. He was loving and affectionate and didn't let cancer take his spirit. He reminded us all everyday to live life to the fullest and enjoy each day as if it were your last with no regrets. He never met a child that he didn't like and had a true compassion for each cancer child he came in contact with. His favorite foods were pizza, spaghetti, broccoli, and anything chocolate. He liked to play anything outdoors. He loved to practice Taekwondo and was a yellow belt. He was all boy when it came to toys and had drawers full of cars and trucks.
