Elizabeth age 20 from Illinois
Acute Myeloid Leukemia
Before I was diagnosed with cancer, a typical week for me included attending school, being highly involved with school activities: cheerleading, softball, clubs including officer positions and 4H. I have not been able to participate in life like my peers. Because of my illness, my parents missed a lot of work. They’ve made sacrifices to support and care for me. While I still have a ways to go, I am making good strides at getting better. A family vacation would be healing for my family.
