My Story

Miriam was diagnosed on Christmas Eve, 2003 (at the age of 12 1/2) with a PNET of the right chest wall. She underwent 14 rounds of chemo, coupled with a major resection of the chest area and finished treatments on August 1, 2004. On April 28, 2005, Miriam was diagnosed with a relapse of PNET/Ewing's Sarcoma of the right pelvic area. She underwent more rounds of chemo, coupled with a major resection of the pelvic area with a saddle prosthesis insertion. Transplant was scheduled for October 26, but was cancelled when pre-transplant testing revealed three new cancerous lesions. On November 21, Miriam began a 28 day course of radiation to be completed on December 30. On December 2, more cancer was found. We stopped radiation on December 28. Miriam began her dancing with Jesus, at 1:32 p.m., Saturday, January 28, 2006. She was 14 years and 265 days old and a gift every one of those days.
