My Story

I had been sick for about a month in October of 2017. After seeing the ENT he said I had an abscess on my tonsils from being sick with strep throat. He tried antibiotics and steroids and it would go away until the steroids and antibiotics were finished then it would come back. He decided to take out my tonsils so on November 1, 2017 I went to the hospital to have a tonsillectomy and that is when the doctor realized that what he thought had been an abscess was actually a tumor inside my tonsils. I started chemotherapy 8 days later and completed 4 rounds and am now in remission!! The doctors, nurses, and other staff at Janet Weis Children's Hospital were awesome and have become like my family. Every time I have a check up I still go see all of the staff on the oncology floor just to say hi and every time it is like seeing old friends. Having gone through cancer has also helped me decide that I want to go to nursing school after I graduate and become a pediatric oncology nurse. I really want to be able to help other kids deal with what I did just like all of the nurses at Janet Weis did for me. Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
