Camila was found to suffer from osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, in March 2014. Her family traveled from Puerto Rico to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for her treatment, which included chemotherapy and surgery, during which the tumor was removed as well as part of the femur in her left leg. Camila regained her strength through physical therapy sessions at St. Jude.
We’re so grateful for everything at St. Jude.
“It hasn’t always been easy,” said Camila’s mom, Roxane. “But we’re so grateful for everything at St. Jude.”
At school, Camila's favorite subject is English. “She’s so smart and loving,” Roxane said. “She’s strong willed and very kind.” Camila likes to draw, read, color and play games.
