program (given that they said the 7 year has been battling brain cancer
Jaclyn is a small girl who was adopted by the Northwestern Women's Lacrosse program a few years back. For the lacrosse players, they learned that no matter how hard practice, games, losses, etc. feel - it's nothing compared to the fight that is childhood cancer. For Jaclyn and the family, they were adopted into an amazing group of women and families who treat them like one of their own.
I know all of this because my daughter has been adopted by the John's Hopkins Women's Lacrosse program through FoJ. Just after her first birthday, as 2005 rolled in, my life changed when my daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor called an ependymoma. We had 2 weeks of daily vomiting followed by an ER visit and ended that evening with a brain tumor diagnosis. She had surgery the next day, another 2 weeks later and then had 6-weeks of radiation treatments. She had an IV line planted and later removed in her chest.
We've been blessed with 8 years of clear scans and she being cancer free.
This is her holding her little brother from last week's camping trip:
