(Children's Hospital of Philadelphia) local radiation to her primary tumor site, 9 rounds of Accutane. Since February, 2006, Janie's treatment involved 6 different hospitals.
In November of 2005, Janie reached a point where there was no detectable cancer in her body. In November of 2007, however, it was discovered that the cancer returned. She began another clinical trial. After nearly every day in the hospital for brief treatment, she progressed after 4 months. Her fight is nowhere near over as we were resolved to give her the most normal life possible while hoping to hold her cancer back.
This page has been created to keep our friends and family updated about her treatment and progress throughout her battle.
Thank you for stopping by to visit our girl!
