Meet Anna


At 15 years old, Anna was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma after she found a lump on her neck. Anna had to leave her school, her soccer team, and her friends in order to go through her treatment. With the incredible support of her family, friends and community, Anna went through a five month treatment plan.

Almost two years later, Anna is now 18 years old and cancer-free! When she’s not in school, she loves giving back to the cancer community through different foundations and fundraisers. Anna is also kicking the soccer ball around with her team, spending time with her friends again and applying to colleges to study nursing! She also enjoys watching Gossip Girl, cheering on the Columbus Crew and FC Barcelona. This past fall, Anna and her soccer team raised $7,000 for BuckeyeThon! Look out for Anna on the Yellow Team this year at the Dance Marathon!
