TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) — At just 8 years old, Averyana Monroe is a cancer survivor. The 3rd year student at Emmanuel Christian in Toledo has AML. It cost her twin sister her life when they were just 3 years old.
Averyana continued. Her leukemia went into remission, but recently it came back.
“We were clear for about 5 months that we weren’t detecting any leukemia in his system, and the tumor had shrunk from the size of a ping-pong ball to about the size of a marble, and then our routine biopsy of bone marrow, that’s where we found it had come back into her bone marrow,” says Jeni Monroe, Averyana’s mother. “So that’s what we’re fighting right now.”
Once a week, Averyana and her mother go to Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus for experimental treatments. Now his whole family is ready for a break.
Thanks to fundraising from the association One at a time campaigne and a donation via the Friends of Faith Pruden FoundationAveryana, her parents, her three older brothers will spend a week in Give children the village of the world in Orlando.
