"Getting diagnosed with cancer the day after Christmas and a couple months before your 13th birthday is not the ideal present. But it is what happened to me when I was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare bone cancer.
I didn't know what to expect, and never met anyone with my disease. All I knew of cancer is what I had seen in Make-A-Wish commercials. Despite incredible support from family and friends, I still felt alone, with nobody to turn to for answers.
When my cancer came back in high school, I knew what to expect from treatment and I dreaded it. I was sick of being bald, sick of a tube hanging out of my chest and just sick of being sick. I needed to talk to someone who knew what I was going through.
I promised myself to be there for those who needed firsthand experience. With Spero for Cancer, everyone in the world affected by cancer will get the support they deserve."
