My Story

I am trying my best to show the world what cancer CANNOT do.  It CANNOT stop me from being a competition dancer at Starlight School of Dance, a Senior Girl Scout, or a member of JSA class of 2025.  It CANNOT stop me from turning 16 years old in July 2023.  It CANNOT stop me from loving life, my family, and my friends.  I was just 18 months old when  cancer picked a fight with me. My parents say that I fought through 4 rounds of chemo, had a full liver transplant, and two more rounds of chemo.  I have been in full remission since June 16, 2009. They say that I fought hard to be healthy, and now I want to fight for all people, especially kids, who have cancer. No one should have to fight through this battle alone, and I am lucky to be supported by friends and family who love me very much and consider themselves blessed to have me in their lives.
