Katelynn - A Survivor Story

Throughout October, Newyorkislanders.com will share stories submitted by our fans who have survived cancer. Today we meet Katelynn, who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma before her first birthday. To submit your own personal survivor story for our blog, e-mail ann.rina@newyorkislanders.com.


At 11 months a mass was found on my carotid artery through a CT-Scan. The next day I was brought to CCMC (Cohen Children’s Medical Center). After much testing and a biopsy, I was diagnosed with Intermediate Neuroblastoma stage 4, days before my first birthday. My parents were devastated and that is where my journey began. I was given a MRI and more tumors were found in my lymph nodes and scans showed additional tumors in my abdomen and chest. I had a meda-port put in my chest and had 2 lymph nodes removed all in one surgery. I was also given 4 sessions of chemo for 3 months.

At age 4 I am a Survivor and have been declared cancer free. I could not have done it without the great team of doctors at CCMC. Dr. Fish is very supportive and has always been very attentive to my family’s concerns about my future. The nursing staff, medical staff and administrative staff have been amazing. With the emotions and ups and downs, they have been extremely kind and helpful, and my family and I feel so blessed to have so many great people in our lives. We will be connected to them and CCMC forever.
