Jocelyn is a 9 year old from Bath, San Marcos, CA. Jocelyn’s journey began when her family took a vacation, but towards the end of the trip Jocelyn had developed a really bad cough.

Jocelyn was dealing with on and off fevers, and it was then when her mom made the decision to take her to the hospital to have her blood work done.
