Hi, my name is Jackie and when I was 16 I was diagnosed with cancer. I was in the hospital for a long time but luckily I was still fighting. On Sunday, March 2, 2012, at 9:46 am I got the best news of my life. But first, let me tell you how it started. It was almost my birthday and I was going to turn 17. On Monday, March 2, 2011, at 7:30 pm I was doing my homework for math and then I crashed. I fell to the ground and was unconscious. My mom said she came into my room and thought I was sleeping. She tried to wake me up for dinner (she was making my favorite, hamburgers) but I wouldn’t wake up. Then I was in a hospital room unconscious.
I woke up a few hours later and I was scared out of my mind. I did not know where I was and my mom was crying next to me like the world was ending. A lot of months passed but it felt like three years had passed.
