When I was five years old, my mom and dad found a big bump on my neck. So then, I had to go to the hospital during my vacation in North Carolina.
When I was there, I learned that my bump was called cancer. I had to have surgery and get a port. That weekend was also my birthday so I had to celebrate my birthday there and turned six.
After almost a week, I got to leave and go home. Then I went to a hospital called Blank and met Dr. McCarthy, Dr. Hickman, Nurse Mary and Nurse Katie. I was really scared on my first day but then I got used to it. The more I went, the more my fears started clearing away.
I had to have chemo for a little more than a year. All my hair fell out and I only got to go to school sometimes. I was really tired a lot and sometimes didn’t feel good. But After 66 weeks, my cancer was all gone! I got to ring the bell with my whole family on January 3, 2023.
When my mom and dad told me I was going to get a special, new room I was very happy. I’m so excited to have my own special room to relax, draw and read books. Sometimes I had to stay nights at the hospital and I always wanted to bring my own bed. I love my room and can’t wait to make it a happy place.
