My Story

I was 5 when I was diagnosed with HL. My doctors acted fast and I was in treatment less than 2 weeks after my biopsy came back. My parents immediately asked about clinical trials and that’s what we chose to do. I was what they called a “rapid responder” and the mass in my neck and other parts of my body were almost completely gone after two rounds of chemo. I finished the last of 5 rounds of checmo in March of 2019 and have been in remission since! With you’re help, we can bring medicines, like the ones I had, and new ones made just for kids to the front lines. Thank you for your support.
