April 2017

Hi, my name is Jessie. I’m 11 years old. I love school and I love to read and write stories.

In January of 2014 I found out I had leukemia. It was a hard battle but I beat it in June of 2016. I was so happy! But then in that following November it came back with a vengeance. The cancer was now in my kidneys.

This caused me to be in a coma on my birthday and on Christmas. I was really sick and none of the doctors had any idea what was wrong with me. They weren’t even sure if I’d make it… but then I did.

I’m happy at home feeling great! I eat as much as I want now without a feeding tube. I have a bone marrow transplant scheduled soon, but until then I will continue to fight.
