Born: March, 2003
- Hometown: Georgetown, Ontario
- Year of Diagnosis: 2008, relapsed Sept 2010
- Diagnosis: Stage IV Neuroblastoma. After the first treatment protocol, I was in remissin for 17 months but the cancer came back in Sept 2010
Some facts about my treatment:
My initial treatment protocol involved 6 rounds of chemo, multiple surgeries, including one for 8 1/2 hours to remove the tumour in my abdomen, 2 stem cell transplants (which require high doses chemo before transplant) and 12 rounds of radiation. Since relapse, I have had 15 rounds of chemo and will continue to get chemo indefinitely.
What I want people to know about me
My mom says that I am thoughtful and very outgoing. She also says that I live life to the fullest and have fun no matter what or where I am.
My favourite day was
Every day I get to go to school with my friends
The worst thing about having cancer
Having people stare at me cause I have no hair, missing school, going to the hospital, getting chemo and finger pokes
What do you want to be when you grow up?
My message to other kids undergoing treatment
Find a good thing in each and every day and keep fighting.
If you could have one superpower strength, what would it be?
I would love to fly so I could travel to all the places I would like to go - like Paris and England
If I had three wishes they would be...
A cure for all cancers, no one in the world would need anything (ie. food, clothes, shelter, love, safety etc.) and be a model
I'm involved with Coast to Coast because...
I can't ride across the country myself and I would do anything I can do to help raise money to help other kids with cancer and finding cures to all cancers.
