Shyann was 12 years old when she was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). We originally thought it was a bad case of strep throat. Shyann immediately started chemo and responded well to it and was in remission a month later. Throughout her cancer journey, Shyann had many hospital stays and months of being at home. When we learned about Hopecam, we jumped on it. It has been a great way for her to keep up in the classroom and stay in touch with her friends and family. Thanks to Hopecam, along with her determination, she has remained on the Honor Roll throughout this journey.
Shyann is now nearing the completion of her chemo treatments, July 23, 2017 to be exact, and is looking forward to her future with hitting her 5 year remission mark. We are thinking positively that it is gone for good, making it a memory/journey to look back and say WE SURVIVED!
