PEDIATRIC CANCER AWARENESS
Tessa is Worth the Fight
Tessa Hodgson was diagnosed with a brain tumor, just before she turned 3 months old. Her surgery was Nov. 6, 2019. On Nov. 14, 2019, she was given the diagnosis AT/RT at just 3 months old. 
Tessa was treated in Toronto at Sick Kids with intensive chemo and stem cells transplant.

She was just about in remission when she developed a lump in her axilla, under her right arm. The biopsy showed it’s MRT (malignant rhabdoid tumor). Tessa's family was absolutely devastated. Surgeons tried to surgically remove the lump earlier this month, but the cancer has intertwined within her muscles and lymph nodes. Radiation is now their only option.

WE NEED A CURE NOW!!! 

Tessa just turned one year old and is the strongest fighter you’ll ever see! We won’t give up!
