12:12 2016 Meet Erin


December 2, 2016

     “My name is Erin McAneney. In 2013 I was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma. The tumor on my back and attached to two ribs was the size of a softball. I endured several months of chemo until my tumor was small enough for removal. When the surgeons removed my tumor they left a type of dangerous gauze inside of me.  It compressed my spinal cord paralyzing me. I now could no longer move or feel anything from the chest down. I then endured 7 more months or chemotherapy with radiation to complete treatment.  Just 3 months in remission my cancer came back. It was all along my chest wall.  My local cancer hospital said there was nothing they could do. I sought treatment in another state.
     I then endured another seven months of chemotherapy, a surgery to remove my lower right lung and half of my diaphragm, and six weeks of radiation.  Then just 3 months in remission my cancer was back again in the same area! I then had my diaphragm and upper front ribs removed. But oh no we're not done yet! I now am enrolled in the Vigil trial. My tumor was removed, genetically modified to make vaccines to hopefully charge up my immune system to fight any cancer cells. If you stayed with me this far in my novel - congratulations! You can tell I have endured a lot, which is why I am so passionate about finding alternative therapies. I don't want another kid to have to endure what I have, and I DO NOT want to see another one of my friends pass away. It's 2016  - - let’s wake up and start finding cures so another child doesn't pass away from this horrible disease!!”
