Rockstar Michael

Role Model 
 In Remission

Hey there, Rockstar Nation. I just wanted to let you all know how thankful we are that Michael is one of your Rohr Rockstars! Michael was diagnosed with a form of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma back in February and is currently in remission and doing really well. Since we met Trish, she has played such a huge role in helping to get Michael back on track after all of the months of school that he missed while receiving chemo. We meet with Miss Steffanie often (BEST TUTOR EVER) and sweet Trish has spent a lot of time meeting with Michael's teachers and school administration to provide guidance during his transition back to school. Today was a great victory for Michael. Today was his first parent teacher conference of the school year. The teacher's words... "Michael is having a great year. He is meeting all of his grade level expectations and he is showing consistent progress in all areas of school. (This next part is my favorite...) He is gaining more confidence in himself and shares great ideas in class. The other students look up to him." She also handed me his report card which was just AWESOME!!! As I read it, I could hear the choir singing the Hallelujah chorus in the background. Trish, Miss Steffanie, and all of you Rohr Rockstar supporters, I can't thank you enough for all that you do. My son is healthy, happy and loves school. I will be forever grateful to you all!!!
Michael's mom, Shannon
P.S. Today Michael had his monthly checkup and everything looked great. Still rockin it out in REMISSION. GO MICHAEL... YOU'RE A ROCKSTAR!!!
