Finley is a 6 year old little girl from Lenexa, KS. She was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in June of 2016. Finley had to miss quite a bit of school this year. She was very excited when we got Hopecam set up. Her teacher worked with us on a daily basis, determining the best time for her to join the class virtually.
This made it so much easier not only on her, but also on her classmates. It allowed them to see her and understand how she was changing physically (i.e. hair loss,) so that when she was able to go to school they weren’t shocked or making fun of her. This also kept her in line with where her class was at in their curriculum, and made her feel like she was participating and not getting behind. All around, just a very good program for everyone!
