Amelia was 3 1/2 when what was originally thought to be pink-eye turned out to be retinoblastoma, a rare children’s cancer that begins in the eye. Within days, she was in surgery at Wills Eye Hospital to remove her right eye. She was fortunate not to need chemo or radiation, and she has been rocking a prosthetic eye since 2005. Amelia is a violinist and attends Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN where she is studying to become a music therapist. In her spare time she loves to travel and spend time with Sophie the Wonderdog, her sweet labradoodle.

Every child who has been diagnosed with childhood cancer inspires us to Rally On to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures. Please join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a donation or setting up your own Rally fundraiser today.
