Age: 12 Passed away (April 22nd 2004-July 30th 2015) | Diagnosis: Synovial Sarcoma| Date of Diagnosis: 04/16/2014
Angelina was your typical happy, healthy little girl with a smile that could light up the darkest of nights. Angelina celebrated her 10th birthday on April 22nd. On April 23rd she was admitted to CHOP and diagnosed with Synovial Sarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of soft tissue cancer. She had a tumor in her intestines that was determined inoperable due to its size, and her only option was to start chemotherapy treatments in hopes to shrink the tumor. She immediately began chemotherapy on the 23rd of April, one day after her 10th birthday. After seven rounds of chemo, it was determined that she would need radiation and proton therapy, which she received 25 rounds combined.
The last year hasn’t been easy for Angelina or her family, but as of December 2014, we are happy to report her recent scans to show she is CANCER free! Her journey doesn’t end there though she will be going every three months for scans to ensure no new growth, but we are so happy Angelina has the chance to live a “normal” life the way kids her age should live.
