My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide. Over Christmas break 2015,my mommy noticed I had very swollen lymph nodes. I saw many doctors who thought I had an atypical infection and gave me many rounds of antibiotics. Thanks to my mommy's persistence and gut feeling she took me to a specialist at Wake Forest Hospital, where I was sent to pediatric oncology and diagnosed with ALL leukemia. I spent 4 days in the ICU, then 2 weeks in Brenners Children Hospital oncology floor. I am finally home, and was told February 15,2016 that I'm in remission. My daddy got a new job and we are moving to Knoxville in 2 weeks. I am very brave and am told I'm a hero.
