Olivia’s story hit close to home for our family as she was diagnosed at 17 in the middle of her senior year of high school with Ewing’s Sarcoma. She is currently undergoing treatment and to say her and her family’s life has been turned upside down is an understatement.
As we have said before, Zippy, has been passionate from the beginning of our fund about offering emotional support for our patients. Olivia and Zippy have connected and we are hopeful his story will bring some comfort as she fights her battle.
We also wanted to share an article Olivia wrote for her school newspaper that is incredibly powerful. The unseen affects of cancer are those that can be the most difficult at times, especially for children and teens.
You said it best Olivia, “I’m still beautiful, even though I am bald.” YOU SURE ARE and you’re one brave, strong young woman
