Jazmine is a beautiful, active, spirited three-year-old! Her laugh is infectious, and you can't help but smile around her. She loves playing outside, getting dirty, Peppa Pig, and dancing. Jazmine also has a genetic condition called Neurofibromatosis. While having a baseline brain MRI in November of 2013, tumors were found on her optic nerves.
We took a wait-and-see approach for a few months, but when her ophthalmologist found vision changes in March of 2014, Jazmine underwent a port placement surgery and began chemo the same day. Our hopes are to stabilize the tumors and preserve her vision and eye function.
Jazmine is now almost a year into her treatment plan with Carboplatin and Vincristine. She is handling the weekly chemo treatments like a rockstar! She is a true hero and brave as can be!
