“Sanm was diagnosed with Stage III Hodgkin’s lymphoma”
Sanm is a beautiful and bright young lady who is striving to accomplish her dreams. She was well on her way to a top university to study biology when her life hit a major speed bump. In February of 2013, Sanm was diagnosed with Stage III Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a cancer of the lymphatic system which is responsible for producing white blood cells.
As the cancer progresses, the body’s ability to fight infection is compromised and cancerous cells begin to overtake healthy cells in the lymph nodes. Sanm immediately started chemotherapy and radiation treatments. For seven months, Sanm battled against her cancer and braved through the devastating side effects of her treatment. Thankfully, her persistence paid off, and she finished treatments in August of 2013.
To help Sanm celebrate her struggle, and get ready for life at college, we sent her on an incredible shopping spree at Vintage Faire Mall in California. Sanm and her shopping buddy arrived in style thanks to Executive Transportation Company, and Sanm was able to shop to her heart’s content thanks to all her fantastic sponsors.
“Thank you, Kids Wish Network, for everything you did for me,” recalls Sanm. “My wish was really fun and I got to pick out a lot of things!”
Sanm goes in for regular check-ups but is currently in good health and very excited to start her new school year.
We’d like to thank all of Sanm’s sponsors for making her day possible: Vintage Faire Mall, Body Trends, Macy’s, Sports Station, BJ’s Restaurant, Flip Flop Shop, Mainland Skate & Surf, Executive Transportation Company, Body Shop, Foreign Exchange, and Shoe Palace.
