My Story

On December 15th 2009 16 year old Jamie Botteon, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). She has completed two cycles of chemotherapy in CT Children's Medical Center and is responding well. Jamie will have a total of 5 cycles of treatment. Jamie is a goalkeeper for Bristol Eastern High School, the SoccerPlus Connecticut U16 team, New England Mutiny, CT ODP and the Region 1 ODP player pool. She is known for her strong, positive leadership, her smile and her tremendous willpower and attitude. She is a joy to be with and loved by everyone who has had the pleasure to meet her. The Botteon's have fought this battle before - for 11 years - with their son and brother Wade. Jamie was Wade's perfect match and donated bone marrow to her big brother 3 times! Showing maturity and grace beyond his years, Wade battled leukemia but passed away in 2003, at the age of 13. Wade's World was founded by the Botteon family to help others finding themselves in similar situations. Through Wade's World, family and their friends have raised tens of thousands of dollars to help children and families during their most difficult times including those in need of heat, groceries and winter coats as well as supporting other organizations such as Time for Life and The Hole in the Wall Gang. Jamie often had to put her passion for soccer aside so that she could help her family with Wade's world annual fundraiser.
