My Story

In may of 2009 Jasanti was a starting pitcher on her softball team. She began complaining of a pain in her left thigh. After several doctors visits a tumor was discovered. She began chemotherapy soon after at Robert Wood Johnson's Children's Hospital. However, she became very ill and chemotherapy had to be stopped. During this time her tumor continued to grow out of control. In July of 2009 doctors amputated Jasanti's leg in an effort to save her life. She had had two lung surgeries at Sloan Kettering to remove lesions that had moved to her lungs. Jasanti returned to school and continued to be active in her girl scout troop. She was a very remarkable young lady who loved to read and communicate on Facebook. She is dearly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
