THE STORY:

I was a 16 year old sophomore who's life was all about softball. I began getting headaches during the spring of my sophomore year in 2011. One night over spring break they became so bad that I was throwing up so I was rushed to the community hospital for a CT scan. The doctors noticed a large mass in my head and would not let me leave the hospital.

My mom works at the University of Chicago so the doctors transferred me to Comer Children's Hospital where an MRI was taken. This all occurred on April 19th, 2011 and exactly one week later on the 26th the University's medical team performed brain surgery. This not only changed my life but also the lives of everyone around me.

I have an amazing family that has supported me throughout my journey. After 36 weeks of radiation, 2 years of chemotherapy, and 16 blood/platelet transfusions I have graduated from Andrean High School and am finally on my last round of chemotherapy. I plan on attending South Suburban College in the fall where I will not only study radiology but also continue my softball career.
