My Story

Rachel is eleven years old and in 6th grade. She loves school, going to football and basketball games and hanging out with her friends. Rachel also enjoys playing sports and is looking forward to rejoining her friends on the girls softball team in the spring. Since her diagnosis of Synovial Sarcoma Rachel has had a positive attitude, she really "fights like a girl". She continues to amaze everyone with her strength, courage and determination. Rachel is looking forward to the end of her treatments and getting back to the normal life of an eleven year old.
