“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Allison went through months of sickness and dead end hospital visits and was near death before her cancer was detected. In March of 2012 At the age of 3, er doctors discovered a soft ball size mass in her chest, it was t-cell non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Over the course of her treatment, she went through many hospital stays, anorexia, transfusions, etc. but she never at any point gave up. She fought through everything like a champ. She has been off treatment for 2 years and is still in remission!!!” – Nickie M.
