At the age of 3, Roxie was diagnosed with high-risk neuroblastoma, a solid tumor and form of pediatric cancer. Over the course of 17 months, Roxie went through an aggressive, multi-therapeutic regimen to treat her disease. The majority of her treatment was administered on an in-patient basis at St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Frontline treatment for high-risk neuroblastoma was successful in bringing Roxie to NED (no evidence of disease). She is currently participating in a trial study at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital¬†with the intent of keeping the disease from ever returning and will continue being monitored by St. Louis Children’s Hospital for long-term side effects as a result of treatments.

Today, Roxie spends the majority of her free time as a care-free first grader. She loves time with her family, especially when she’s playing with one or all of her three siblings. Roxie loves to sing, dance, play soccer and has a real talent for arts and crafts. If you ask Roxie what she wants to be when she grows up, without hesitation she’ll tell you, “A Doctor.”
