Christina Renna FoundationChristina Renna Foundation Contact: Philip & Richard J Renna
Hello, my name is Christina Renna I am 16 years old and about a year and a half ago my life changed completely. I found out that I have cancer. It’s called Rhabdomyosarcoma. It’s easier to just say Rhabdo, which is a soft tissue cancer. I had to undergo a year of treatment just to find out that the cancer had returned. In January I had surgery, by March the cancer was back. I just completed more radiation treatment and just got back from the hospital this passed Wednesday. This has been a tough time for me but cancer has taught me a lot about myself. I found out how strong I truly am. When you hear the word cancer for the first time your life takes on a new meaning. All the things that you thought were so important turn out not to be. The things that you take for granted every day like eating, running, school, friends and even your hair now become even more special.
Relay for life give us hope for a brighter tomorrow by bringing us all together. All that I thought about these last few months as I went thought my treatments was about today and being here with all of you. The relay for life gives us the chance to strike back at this unseen enemy that hides within us. Together we get the chance to help put an end to cancer. Fighting this fight may one day save the live of someone you love or even your own life.
