Janet was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in August 2009 while studying at UCLA. She endured 8 rounds of high-dosage chemotherapy that lasted over the course of a year. In June 2010, she left the hospital in complete remission and began a regimen of maintenance therapy that kept her cancer-free for a year and a half.
Grateful for the time she had to be healthy, Janet finished her studies and finally graduated. She was hired by a local school district to assist the teaching staff with tutoring high school students. Although she studied for the GRE and was accepted to graduate school, she declined the offer because she was uncertain about her career choice. Instead, she took a long-awaited dream trip to England and France with her mother. Janet also got a chance to appear in People Magazine on behalf of the nonprofit organization First Descents to promote hope and healing to other young adult cancer patients through whitewater kayaking and other outdoor adventures.
Unfortunately, she has recently relapsed with her leukemia and her plans for the future have been put on hold once again. JANET NEEDS YOUR HELP!
