Hi, I'm JP. I'm 8 years old and live in Layton, Utah. I was diagnosed with cancer when I was 2 years old. I did chemo for 3 years before I rang the bell in 2015. I was cancer free for 2 years before it came back last summer. I've been doing chemo and a clinical trial to treat my relapse for just over a year.
When I was 5, I played for the Utah Jazz for a day. It was the best day ever!! They subbed me into the game and I made a slam dunk (with help from Rudy Gobert). When my cancer came back, the Utah Jazz made some #jpstrong shirts for me. It's been pretty cool.
I love CureSearch because there's a lot of cancer friends to meet and play with there. We all get a medal and a cape and we wave to our families on the stage. We play games, dance, sing songs with our superhero and mascot and princess friends, see doctors and nurses from the hospital and get our faces painted. It's a super fun day and I can't wait for it this year!! You should join my team!
