2010---Mandi is the most easy going, smart, and loving child in the world. In early November she was just back from a trip to SFO for the Nation Junior Olympics where she competed in trampoline and tumbling. She had just made the Cheerleading squad, finishing cheer camp at UNCG, and was off to a great start in school. Then came cancer. After a long road in the Hospital she is doing "out patient" chemo now and is going to school this year. She is back on the Cheerleading squad and has made the Volleyball team. She has only had to miss 2 volleyball practices but still bounces the ball in the house even when she is sick. She is amazing and my hero!
2015---Mandi finished treatment March 15, 2012, a day we celebrate. She is still monitored closely by Brenner's Children's Hospital and shows no evidence of disease. She now lives a normal teen life, a senior at Grimsley High School and getting ready for college in the fall. Who would have thought a little bald cancer girl could one day be 1st runner up to Miss Greensboro.
Mandi and the Doctors at Brenner fought a hard fight and won. But unfortunately most of the friends we made in the cancer world are now angels. That's not right and not fair!!! We need a cure. So please help in supporting research for Children's Cancer. Mandi was one of the lucky ones.
