Jameisha

Jameisha's Signature Jameisha was just 8 years old in June 1998 when she began a journey that would take her from cancer patient to survivor to advocate. She was diagnosed with Burkitt's lymphoma, an aggressive lymphoma that occurs most often in children and young adults. Although Brown was cancer-free by February 1999, she continued participating in the Children's Art Project until age 19. Today, Brown's life is still focused on health. She received her master's degree in health studies from Texas Woman's University - just blocks from where she was a young patient at MD Anderson. She'll pursue a Ph.D. in health education, study chronic disease and health disparities research at Texas A&M University. She hopes one day to be an MD Anderson scientist working with other cancer patients who come from disadvantaged backgrounds.
