My Story

I was only 1 years old when I was first diagnosed with a brain tumor called Ependymoma.  I had multiple surgeries, chemotherapy and proton radiation.  For 8 years I was cancer free.  Unfortunately, on February 19, 2018, my cancer came back.  After 2 more surgeries and 30 rounds of proton radiation I am now NED, no evidence of disease!  I have several deficits from all my treatments, but I do not let it get me down!!! I love the color purple, SpiderMan, and aspire to be a hair stylist when I grow up. Come join me and my family as we fight together to find a cure for pediatric cancer.
