When Jessica was only 3 years old she was diagnosed with you Ewing’s Sarcoma in her left tibia. She underwent chemo and radiation and was declared in remission.

Then, in July of 2008, the cancer was back - this time in her shoulder blade. She had more chemo and more radiation; in May of 2009 she was considered in remission again. In August of 2010, on routine scans, it was found the cancer was back in both her tibia and shoulder blade.

Jessica underwent more chemo and then surgery. February 3rd of 2011 she had her shoulder blade amputated and on March 22nd 2011 she had her leg amputated. That very night, after waking up from surgery, she wanted Auntie Anne's Pretzels, with extra cheese, and a blue Icee!

She finished chemo and 3 months later, on another routine scan, a spot was found in her lung. It was decided to wait and watch it for a while. In November of 2012, Jessica and her family decided it was time to see what she was dealing with. Jess had a biopsy and lung ablation. The biopsy came back positive for Ewing’s and once again, she was back on chemo. In July 2013, the unthinkable happened. The cancer had metastasized to her brain.

Jessica completed 19 days of whole brain radiation on August 13th of 2013. Recently after undergoing more treatment, doctors found that the tumors had shrunk over 50%. Great news!

Designing Dreams redesigned Jessica's bedroom in January of 2014. We appreciate every single supporter throughout the process of making this little girl’s dream come true.
