This is my niece Sarah. Sarah was diagnosed with a brain tumor called Gliosarcoma. Because of where it was located it could not be removed, but after many different surgeries and treatments Sarah went into remission at the age of 15. At the age of 17 she was put on an experimental treatment along with 5 other little girls. Four of them died and Sarah suffered a stroke that left her paralyzed. After many years of therapy, Sarah has relearned how to walk with a brace on her leg and her arm is kept in a sling. Sarah is 25 years old now and is still on therapy and many medications. She speaks clearly but sometimes she has to stop and think before she can verbalize her thoughts. She is still on her journey dealing with her cancer. We thank God everyday that she can live as normal a life as can be expected.
Will Sarah ever be able to live as a normal young woman? Only God has the answer to that. But we are blessed that she is doing well for now and helps children in a cancer hospital when she is able to do so. Our niece is an angel on earth. She is so brave and strong that it amazes me what we can learn from her after all she has been through.
