About This Activity

Proceeds Benefit:  Anne Marie Fraser

Anne Marie Fraser is a seventeen year old senior at O’Fallon high school and a parishioner at St. Teresa’s in Belleville.  She was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma in November of 2012.  Ewing’s Sarcoma is a form of bone cancer, which in Anne Marie’s case, is in a very difficult spot for any kind of surgery.  She was in remission for nine months after receiving 14 rounds of chemotherapy and 30 rounds of radiation, but on 5/30/14 she was diagnosed with recurrent Ewing’s Sarcoma and is currently in the process of receiving chemotherapy and harvesting stem cells at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.  This round of chemotherapy will wipe out her immune system, which will then be saved by the autologous stem cell transplant, resulting in hospitalization for 4 to 6 weeks.
