    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Chemo lasted 3 years, 3 months, & 19 days. I finished on November 28th, 2008. It caused me to miss 96&1/2 days of my 8th grade year. Due to the length of treatment there were many different experiences, side effects, results, etc.

    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): I had my metaport put in the center of my chest. This device made the next 3&1/2 years much more manageable, but the day of surgery was possibly the longest day of my life.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): I was 13. It was August 8th 2005 at 5:31 in the evening when my parents came down after talking on the phone with my doctor. It was the most scared I have ever been, and I knew I was in for a rough ride. It was, however, a ride I had to take and refused to give up.
