Morgan is a happy and energetic teenager. She loves to dance, cheer, tumble and compete in pageants.
Morgan found a small lump on her neck that continued to grow. She also began to experience pain in her legs and back. She was given several rounds of antibiotics and had several blood tests. As the lump continued to grow she was referred to an ENT who suggested a biopsy. The results were Stage III Burkitt's Lymphoma.
Morgan was immediately admitted to the hospital where staging and other tests were performed over the next few days. She had her port placed and began chemo treatments. She also got chemo through spinal taps. She had a total of 5 months of chemotherapy.
Morgan hopes to graduate from high school and become a cosmetologist.
Carol, Morgan’s mother, advises families who have recently received a cancer diagnosis to remain hopeful, trust in your doctors and have faith.
Morgan is her mother’s hero because throughout all of her treatment she remained hopeful and strong. She had a good attitude every day of treatment, even on her worst days.
