My Story

Olivia is a fifth grader at Grace Community School in Tyler, Texas.  Mid-November, she visited her pediatrician for what was initially assumed to be a pinched nerve.  On November 20, medical tests revealed a mass on the spine near the neck. 

Olivia's mom is Judy, and her third-grade sister is Alicia.
