Cathleen was diagnosed with a germ cell tumor in Sept. of 2009. She had the tumor removed but cancer cells spilled into her abdomen.
In 2011 Cathleen was diagnosed with a undifferentiated Sarcoma in March. She developed a infection and had to wear a wound vac for three months. Cathleen finished her chemo on July 26th 2012!! She has issues with her knees and hips because of the treatment, but that never gets her down. Cathleen is a proud member of the Marching Mustangs of South Effingham High School. She loves to hang out with her friends. Her goal is to be a pediatric oncologist when she is older.
