Reina's Story (Video)
Check out the video above! In 2009, Reina was 15 years old when she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). She went through 9 surgeries and a year straight of chemotherapy. It has been and continues to be a long journey, but praise God she is currently cancer-free and doing well! She is currently getting her Master's degree and still participating in ASK events (even though she lives 2 hours away from VCU)!
Reina decided to call her team The Funny Bones after beating bone cancer through silliness and smiles with her amazingly supportive family and friends!
" ASK has done so much for me and my family, I just wanted a chance to give back to that awesome community!" - Reina, Funny Bones team captain.
