My Story

Courtney was diagnosed with a Medulloblastoma brain tumor a few days after her 8th birthday. She had 30 rounds of radiaion and 48 weeks of chemotherapy. After the brain surgery Courtney temporarily lost her ability to speak or move most of her body. She used a minimal form of sign language to communicate since she could not move her arms or legs, only some of her fingers. Through determination and perserverance, Courtney can now speak and is working on walking on her own. Courtney's beautiful smile has remained throught this journey and warms the hearts of all she meets. She's anxious to return to dance class and "moves and grooves" any chance she gets. She loves Arts and Crafts and playing games.
