Sydney

Sydney is an active middle-schooler who enjoys dancing, cheerleading and pageantry. Her journey began with back/shoulder pains in the first quarter of 2011. After several misdiagnosis, a MRI in August 2011 found a mass/lesion on her spine. She underwent a lamenectomy of the spine in which a biopsy was taken and a portion of the mass compressing her spinal cord was successfully removed. She required further treatment through 17 rounds of chemotherapy and 28 rounds of proton radiation in Jacksonville Florida. Sydney continues to cheer and dance through it all.
