Harrison Collett was just 6 years old when he was diagnosed with cancer.
After complaining of leg pain that doctors initially thought was due to growing pains, his mother, Amy, a nurse, knew it might be more severe than that, and took him to Children’s Hospital in Boston. In April of 2009, Harrison was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma when a bone tumor was found in his leg.
After undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments, Harrison was declared cancer-free on Dec. 26, 2009, and he remains cancer-free today. The 11-year-old is back to doing what he loves: being a regular kid and playing basketball, and he and his family thank the Jimmy Fund for that.
