I was diagnosed with cancer at the age of four and a half Leukemia is a cancer in the blood One day we were out to dinner. I was said something doesn’t look right with Tyler he kind of pale So a mother’s instinct said let me get him to the emergency room. It was like, let’s take some blood work and we’ll be back the doctors came in Said yeah, he does have cancer And It was the worst day of my life The doctors treated me with chemotherapy when I lost my hair. I was really sad and Embarrassed at the same time to go to school They used to make fun of me and laugh at me because I was different they would spread rumors to say that My cancer was contagious and they all wanted to stay away from me One day Tao I saw a flyer at his school and it said after-school program the free violin lessons Because like mom I want to do it mom. I want to do it I was like, but no one our family plays an instrument. What a Novelli I Would just practice in my bedroom and the more I did it the better I got once he started that class.

I Just didn’t want to be the kid but cancer I’m the kid who plays the violin?
