My Story

Just before her third birthday Ruthann was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. In the three years since she has undergone 2 major surgeries, several minor procedures and regular check-up (every ninety days) that include pokes, prods and needles. Despite her cancer, Ruthann is an active and happy little girl. She enjoys princess’, dress up, and arts & crafts. When she is not playing with her friends and/or her younger brother she helps her mom and dad with the daily farm chores. Ruthann inspires the people around her with her good spirit and strength.
