About the Event
Dariann Bushee 17-year-old MHS student was diagnosed in November 2020 with Philadelphia Positive Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Dariann has gone from being an incredible active teen to living in a world surrounded by doctors’ offices, endless testing, and never-ending treatments. From former competitive gymnast, an avid runner, and a weightlifter, her new role is to simply be a survivor. Despite all that has been thrown her way she is still able to find constant joy in the world through her love of nature. Dariann loves nothing more than to get outdoors and paddleboard, hike the trails, tend to her vegetable garden, and embrace nature in every form available.
For the past 2 months, Dariann and her family have had to manage to live in Denver as she began her recent intensive chemotherapy treatment. Traveling to Denver 1-2 weeks out of every month, for her intensive inpatient treatment, is now the new normal. As well as visits to Grand Junction at least once a month as needed for outpatient chemo and transfusions. Despite the current conditions she is facing in treatment as well as the taxing conditions of travel, Dariann continues to embrace her love of life, nature, and music.
Dariann and her family still have 2-3 months left of intensive treatment before she is even considered for maintenance treatment, which will require trips to Denver once every 2-3 months. The treatments will also include trips to Grand Junction each month for outpatient services.
In total, Dariann will be in treatment for at least 2.5 years. Cancer does not define this amazing young woman. She is a multi-talented young woman who deeply loves her pets, is a gifted singer, an avid lover of nature, and has strong rooting in her faith. Ultimately, Dariann defines the word strength.
