"Hi, my name is Jasmyne Cooper and I was recently diagnosed with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (ALCL). ALCL is a form of cancer produced in the lymph nodes and is a non Hodgkin’s lymphoma cancer. Generally this type of cancer is moderate, but can be considered aggressive. I have already started undergoing chemotherapy treatments in Oklahoma where I am currently staying with my family. The next few months will consistent of chemotherapy and radiation treatments, follow-ups, scans, etc. I am currently a Junior at the University of Wyoming and compete on the Women's Track and Field Team. I have had to step away from the University and the Track program while I undergo treatment. I am partnering with the University of Wyoming Athletics department to set up this account and raise funds for my treatment, travel expenses, and other miscellaneous expenses as I take on this battle with cancer. Any financial assistance and support that you can provide is greatly appreciated! Thank you all in advance. Your support is very much appreciated."
