At age 14 Roberta has been on quite the cancer journey. She was diagnosed with ALL (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) and has had a bone marrow transplant along with taking trial medications. She has been in and out of the hospital for three years. Other issues have resulted from treatment, one of them being lung disease. She would like to work on healthy eating and when she gets older would like to become a gluten free baker. Meeting Beyonce is on her “bucket list” because she loves her music! She also hopes to succeed in life. Her superpowers she would love to have would be to be invisible and bullet-proof. The advice she would like to give to other cancer survivors is, “Don’t give up, and keep on trying”.
