After dinner on December 12th, 2020 I discovered a rash on my legs and thighs. The following day, we went to the pediatricians to have it checked out. At the office, they pricked my finger and checked my blood. A little while later they told me I needed to go to VCU Children’s hospital because their machines were not strong enough. That afternoon at VCU, I was diagnosed with Leukemia. I was scared, but also comforted by many people and charities. I had to stay at the hospital for more than a week. In that week I made many friends. I am still battling cancer, but I am doing well. The cancer cells have not invaded my bones or spinal cord.
I would like to raise funds for the ASK foundation for comforting me though this time and helping my entire family. Thank you for your supporting me through this journey and please consider donating to the ASK foundation.
