Cheri Nelson

I was diagnosed in August of 1996 with JDMS. I have been in remission for 2 years now. I got married 3 years ago. I have an associates degree in Business and work for BB&T Bank in Hanover, Virginia. I plan to get my Bachelors Degree and maybe even go on to get my MBA. We recently built a new home here in VA. I have moved from Alabama to Arizona to Virginia. I had a very long 7 year battle with JM and hope that I remain in remission. My husband Andrew and I met online in 1997 and were married in 2002. It is a fairy tale come true for me. I have attended 4 TMA Conferences and spoke this year in Cleveland. I hope to do it every year! I love meeting the kids and teens who are having the same battles that I had.
