Jose

In 4th grade, Jose was diagnosed with Embryonal Rhabdomyosarcoma. He had just started to play basketball and continued to play and practice with his team during his chemo treatments.

 

In February 2015, Jose was considered to be in remission and he wanted to attend basketball camp. Jose's mom found Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation's Camp Scholarship Program and applied for assistance. Jose enjoyed his time at camp so much he wanted to go to the next one, an overnight basketball camp. The following year CCRF was able to help with funds to send Jose to basketball camp once again. The camps have helped to strengthen Jose's ankle and hip weakness caused by the chemo treatments.
