CD Masters Blue
Meet Anna LaBella.
As her softball season wound down in June, 2019, Arianna complained of pain in her upper leg. At first, Mom and Dad thought it could be a muscle pull or bruise but knowing that Arianna never complained about pain before, despite being very active and getting bumped and bruised along the way, they decided to have it checked out. They visited their local hospital and they performed a scan and saw a mass on her pelvis and immediately sent her to Albany Medical Center.
On July 9, 2019 she was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. The tumor is very large but thankfully the cancer was, and remains, localized to that area. Chemo started immediately, which required in patient stay through August. The family stayed at the Albany RMH and utilized the House and Family Room at AMC.
She returned home in the fall and was able to resume going to school as her schedule and health allowed despite weekly trips for treatment back to Albany.
Treatments have continued including a six-week regiment in early 2020. She has been battling low counts, but she rolls with the punches and maintains a positive outlook. Her treatment plan will continue in the summer.
Anna and her family were also supported by Building on Love which helped with 3-months of financial support to assist with rent, car payments, utilities and cell phone expenses.
