Celebrating 15 Years of Love: Jia’s Story

How many of you remember little Jia? This link to a blog post from 2010, To Love Always, To Heal When Possible might remind you. LWB helped Jia through our medical program 8 years ago, and we wanted to share an update on this little girl’s life.  She had been born with a saccrococygeal teratoma, which is ideally resected within days of life; however, Jia was 7½ months old before LWB was called upon to help. We quickly raised the needed funds for her surgery and monitored her healing. Unfortunately, a year later, Jia’s tumor had returned, and along with it a cancer diagnosis.  We were unsure of her prognosis, but we acted to treat her with chemotherapy and more surgery.  Jia had a long road ahead of her.
