Nancy Stepusin's Story

I lost my daughter Rebecca at the age of 19 to a rare cancer, Rhabdomyosarcoma. Rebecca was just beginning to realize her dreams as she begun school at the University of Florida, when she was diagnosed with a rare cancer, Rhabdomyosarcoma. She was only 18 years old. Because the disease is so aggressive and we do not have a cure, she lost her battle February 28, 2008 at the age of 19. The more research, the better chance to find a cure for these rare diseases. Not much is known about Rebecca's rare cancer, however, through medical research we can understand it better. My husband published a book on our daughter's faithful journey through cancer. He dedicated the book to families who are going through cancer with a loved on. If you would like more information on the book, please visit
