In December of 2007 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Somehow I always actually thought that my daily dedication at the gym in the morning, the healthy lifestyle, constant positive attitude and attention to the golden rule I kept worked as some magical cloak around my shoulders that would protect me from things just like this. I couldn’t believe it, the words hit me like a ton of bricks.

I’m 15 years old and a survivor of cancer. It started when I was 12 years old and in 7th grade. I developed a large goiter on my lower neck. After many tests that came out suspisious I went in to surgery early morning of July 2005. It lasted 6 hours. I had my whole thyroid, 4 lymphoids, and 9 nodules removed all consisting of cancer cells and tumors. I’ll never forget that night when the nurse was wheeling me in to my room and my Mom told me that I did have cancer. I didn’t know how to react or what to say. I was nervous and I didn’t know what was coming up next.

Our son, Anthony, was 3 months shy of his 19th birthday when he was diagnosed on April 19, 2007 with Stage 4 Esophageal Cancer. Due to Anthony’s age, we found many gaps in his treatment. While there were many support groups for Pediatric’s (as there should be), we found no emotional or financial support for Anthony’s age group. To summarize the gaps, I would have to begin with the fact that Anthony was told up front that he had only 9-12 months to live.
