During the summer of 2017 Austen’s parents noticed some alarming symptoms. During this time Austen was visiting her pediatrician multiple times with no solid answer. In September her parents noticed a small protruding mass and they promptly took her to the ER.
In October, after multiple trips to the ER, a trip to the urologist, and more alarming symptoms, Austen was diagnosed with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma.
Today she is thriving. Austen loves cheer leading, country music and spending time with her family.
