My Story

Jocelyn was diagnosed with cancer just after her 3rd birthday. She had a tumor in her left heel bone and the cancer metastasized to her lungs. Because of the size and location of the tumor, they had to amputate her left foot, a little above the ankle. Jocelyn endured a little over a year of chemo treatments, surgery and a week of radiation (to her lungs). She has since gotten a prosthetic (several since she is growing like a weed!) and is running around like a normal kid! She will be 6 in May. So far, she has been cancer free for about a year and a half! I kept a journal of sorts on a blog I created for her @ ourdearjocelyn.wordpress.com

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
