Sydney was a healthy happy 11 year old enjoying this summer with her friends, when she became dizzy and was rushed to the hospital where she underwent emergency surgery to save her life. She was diagnosed with with stage 3 anaplastic astrosytoma–our world was instantly changed forever. Sydney was flown to Children’s Hospital and underwent a second surgery to remove the rest of the tumor. She underwent 30 radiation treatments and will start 30 weeks of chemo on Monday Oct. 10th. Sydney got to go back to Montana for 3 weeks to see her dad and brother and enjoyed some good healing time. She is very brave and is ready to start her chemo treatments. Sydney will be in Denver until May to get her chemo treatments. She will get to go home to Montana for short visits on her days off. We are blessed to have the wonderful staff at Children’s Hospital to help us get through our journey.
