Lucy Roop, Port Matilda
At 3 years old, Lucy spiked continuous high fevers with no real explanation for their cause. After she complained about shoulder pain, her doctor ordered blood work, which showed an extremely low white blood cell count.
She was sent to Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital to be seen by hematology/oncology specialists. Further testing found that Lucy had leukemia. Her treatment began immediately and continued for more than two years. Now, more than three years later, Lucy is cancer-free and is a kindhearted little girl with her eye on the future.
Donations to Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital helped to provide the Pediatric Sedation Suite, where Lucy underwent many procedures during her long battle to beat cancer.
