Cure Kids Cancer: Holly
Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon and Townsquare Media Sioux Falls
So many times, parents hear from their kids that their ears are hurting. Never did Adam and Amy anticipate a cancer diagnosis when their daughter Holly complained of an earache.
But, in December of 2018, what started out like any ear infection turned into a diagnosis of rhabdomyosarcoma. Holly was just five and a half years old at the time. Within a week, Holly had her first chemotherapy to treat the tumor, which was the size of the lime in her cheek.
Holly underwent 42 weeks of chemotherapy and several rounds of proton radiation before ringing the bell, signifying the end of treatment, but Holly's cancer continues to impact her life.
Every 3-4 weeks, Holly returns to the Castle for a blood transfusion to give her the strength and energy she needs. Holly's cancer diagnosis strengthened the bond she shares with her twin sister, Haley, and while they no longer look identical, they still support each other like two peas in a pod.
