My Story

Erin was a fighter. Ever since she was diagnosed a week after her 1st birthday, she has fought against any obstacles that stood in her way. After her first surgery, she had to learn how to walk again, did it. Lost her sight after her first surgery, learned and excels in Braille. Successfully recovered from numerous surgeries prior to her 5th birthday. She has survived chemotherapy treatments twice, radiation, and almost 30 surgeries. You would not have ever thought anything had happened to her, because she is always the happiest kid around. She walked into any room and instantly lights it up. She participated in anything that she put her mind to, including taking Judo and playing the Cello. She gives others to have hope.
