Jairetzie was diagnosed with ALL at age 4. She is a very special girl who likes school, reading, and helping others. Jairetzie was healthy until cancer hit. She was in the hospital for 1 1/2 months with a fever. When she was diagnosed, her family was living in Bullhead City, and felt like they needed to move to Mesa to be closer to the hospital for treatment. They moved without knowing anyone in the area and no family close by. Children’s Cancer Network is a place they come for activities, resources, and support. What would Jairetzie say to other cancer survivors? Never give up!
