Meet Tanasia, she was diagnosed on January 29th, 2018 with Hodgkin Lymphoma Stage III. Her diagnosis came following a six week period of being sick and multiple visits to her pediatrician. After numerous blood tests, scans, x-rays and biopsies, the family heard the words, “it’s cancer”. Tanasia started her first round of chemo on January 29th. Since she did so well through her first days she is able to continue her treatment on an outpatient basis. As of today, she has completed two full rounds of chemo. She will start round three this month, April 2018. Aside from our financial assistance and sunshine pack provided, Tanasia benefitted from a visit from one of our Therapy Dogs.
