“My name is Kivon Salters and my daughter’s name is Sydney and we were recently diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer, called Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor. It only effects about 0.05% of women that range from 13-35. She’s only 6. These last three months have really been an eye opener!! We have been truly blessed throughout the whole experience! And we are so grateful! Her older sister hasn’t taken it so well, but we have a really good support system at home. Unlike common cancers, we don’t have a support group for our type, so our family as been amazing and so have the wonderful doctors at children’s! Our oncologist is the best doctor at that hospital if you ask me. She ended up losing her ovary, which was the size of a softball. So I thank you all so much!”
We sincerely appreciate you having shared your story with us AND our community. We believe that by sharing one another’s stories, H O P E is offered to other families also fighting! Salter family, may you enjoy a CHRISTMAS filled with JOY!
