Throughout October, Newyorkislanders.com will share stories submitted by our fans who have survived cancer. Today we meet Catherine, who was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma before she was six months old. To submit your own personal survivor story for our blog, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
At five months of age I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Although I do not remember much about my treatment, my favorite parts about follow up visits were the nurses and staff in the treatment room and playing with the other kids.
At age 4 I am still close with Dr. Fish and I love seeing him at the Survivors Facing Forward Program. I am in my second year of dance, have performed at two recitals and I love swimming and playing soccer!
