"I remember being really sick and taking all that medicine for a long time. I had to wear a hat because I lost my hair. The worst thing was all the needles - I hope I don't ever have to be stuck again. Going to summer camp was fun - I went four times and got to take (sisters) Beth, Sarah, Emily and (brother) Ben. I like going to Astroworld, too. A couple of years ago, I sat next to President Clinton at the rodeo and my picture with him was on the front page of the newspaper (Houston Chronicle). I like school a lot, especially math and reading. When I grow up, I want to be a doctor just like Dr. (Irma) Ramirez at M. D. Anderson."
