My Story

In March 2007 the Dr's said I had cancer, a brain tumor called Anaplastic Medulloblastoma. They also told me that it had spread to my spine in a couple of spots. I had to have an operation and they gave me medicine that gave me the "yuckies" really bad. My hair fell out and I had some more problems and surgeries on the way. My eyes don't work as well as they use to. I am legally blind, but I can see some stuff. My hearing was affected too but I wear these cool things called hearing aids and it helps me hear better. Today I am working on getting stronger, walking again, eating again, and I am even going to school for a little bit. I love Star Wars, Poke'mon, Spongebob, Maisy, Max and Ruby. Oh, and I have a nutty dog named "Jack." I love to look at my playing cards (star wars and poke'mon cards), hearing stories, playing Connect 4, and draw pictures, shoot webs (spider-man impression), and role playing from movies. I also love playing food shopping, and pretend kitchen. Thanks for reading =}
