Lexi’s Story - as told by her Mom, Tami

Lexi

It was the first day of school, September 2017, and our three daughters were off on the bus – just a normal day. Thirty minutes later everything changed. We received a call from our family doctor. Lexi had recently had an x-ray and the radiologist saw something in her bone. The doctor told us it looks like cancer and that we would be going to Children’s Hospital the next day.

Meet Shannon Rogers

Shannon Rogers

Please meet Shannon Rogers, our speaker from 2017.   Shannon was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma at 16 years old. After being repeatedly told she was suffering from growing pains in her hip, the pain became unbearable and landed her in Children's Hospital ER. This set into motion a series of tests and scans that lead to the devastating diagnosis of the rare form of bone cancer in her pelvis in June of 2015.
