I was 8 when I was diagnosed with Leukemia and I am 13 years old now. I was diagnosed on Christmas Eve in 2011. I did cancer treatments for over 2 years and now I am totally fine. It has been really hard but I have stayed positive and grateful all the way through. If I could say one thing to my cancer it would be “You’ve taught me so much, one being that I HATE YOU!” Something special after getting chemo was my mom always got me a cookie dough Blizzard from DQ. My favorite food is tacos because you can mix/match the toppings and I also love kale…because it’s amazing! If I could travel anywhere it would be to go to New York and see a ton of Broadway shows. That would be the best thing ever!
