Jessica Meyer was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2011 called germinoma. Her cancer was located in her central nervous system in the supra cellular region that spread to her pituitary, hypothalamus, and optic nerves. Jessica endured brain surgery to biopsy the cancer, spinal taps, surgery for her g-tube and port catheter, months of chemotherapy including etopiside and carboplatin, and 24 cycles of radiation. Jessica’s treatment lasted throughout all her 5th grade year. She still suffers from other health conditions caused by the tumor, but the cancer mass — now much smaller — appears to be inactive and Jessica has a 90 percent chance of survival. She is back in school, is now a 7th grader, on the dance team and on a mission to share her story.

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.
