MICAELA ‘SLOAN’ EDGE

A battle to graduate Darryl Welch

A high school student’s senior year can be challenging enough without having to overcome a devastating medical diagnosis, but for one Eastside High School senior, that’s how her last year in high school started. To have the opportunity to talk with 18-year-old Micaela Edge, better known as Sloan, is chance to hear her story. Diagnosed in September with Hodgkin lymphoma, Sloan will walk with the Class of 2018 later this month, her cancer in remission, ready to start the next chapter in her life. “I had noticed a slight swelling on my neck that we assumed was a torn muscle of some kind and after a week or so, it didn’t go away so we decided to go to the doctor and ask them about it,” she said. “And they said to go get some X-rays and blood work and such, and I thought, ‘Blood work’s a little weird, but X-rays are normal,’ and then our doctor got the results back and she immediately said ‘You need to go to Egleston right now and get some test done.’ “It was actually my homecoming night so I was kind of just like this is all over noth-

ing. It’s just a torn muscle. So we got the tests done and they found out it was some kind of lymphoma, and that was a whole deal. So we got admitted into the hospital and we did some more tests and we found out it was Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.” Sloan said finding out it was Hodgkins lymphoma was a relief of sorts. “It’s one of the more easily cured cancers out there,” she said. “Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, the other kind, is a bit harder to cure.” Sloan said she was out of school for two weeks or so after her diagnosis having regular check-ups and getting everything planned out to make sure she was ok to still go to school. “And then I went to school for a while, until we started chemo,” she said, “From there, it was periodically missing school, because the way they had my treatment set up, I would do a round of three weeks. One week was three days of chemo, the next week was one day of chemo and then the next week was a break, before we started on the next round. Throughout the course of her treatment, Sloan continued to try to keep up with her studies.

“I had hospital homebound so I tried to do as much as I could then. And I also tried to do my best outside of hospital homebound to keep up, at least with my literature class,” she said. “I’m a very big literature person. I want to be a writer one day so I thought I have to keep up with this.” Sloan said her teachers were supportive as she fought her cancer and worked hard to keep up her studies. “They all felt so sympathetic for me and they knew that what I was going through was rough and I needed some lenience,” she said. “And a lot of my teachers, all of them, just responded positively and tried to help me as best they could.” Sloan said her cancer was also hard for her parents. “Parents, they hate it when they see their children in pain, so that was really hard for them,” she said. “But since getting better, since I’ve started recovering and since I’ve been in remission, they’ve done so much better. “I’m so glad to have them in my life and I’m so glad that we’re a family and together.” When asked what she will

miss most about Eastside Sloan said, “Definitely the teachers, the counselors and the staff. They’re all really great people. And a lot of the friends I’ve made here.” Sloan, the daughter of a Newton County educator, plans to continue her education and pursue her writing career at the Newton campus of Georgia State University. Eastside’s 2018 prom queen said she never doubted she would graduate on time. “In fact, when I was first diagnosed and they first told me I needed to stay overnight, I was like ‘But Mom, I have school. I can’t miss school,” she said. “I was freaking about that instead of freaking about ‘I had cancer.’ “I knew I was going to graduate on time, even with the cancer,” she said. “I told myself, ‘There’s no way I’m not going to graduate on time; I’m not letting that happen to myself.’ “That was just one thing I was bound and determined to do. And graduating, I feel like it will be one part, it’s like I actually did it, I’m actually here. I can’t believe this. And another part will be, hallelujah, it’s over.”

CHRISTION MASON

Triumph over tragedy Darryl Welch When 17-year-old Christion Mason walks across the stage to graduate with Alcovy High School’s Class of 2018, it will truly be a story of triumph over tragedy considering he had to learn to walk all over again after suffering devastating injuries in an accident. Christion was struck by a logging truck while walking home from Alcovy on the evening of Jan. 14, 2016. He was not found until 30 minutes later when another Alcovy student driving past saw him on the side of the road and called 911. He was flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston by air ambulance with massive injuries. “I was on the baseball team, baseball conditioning and track conditioning and I asked my mom if I could walk home, so she told me yes,” he said recalling the day of his accident. “Well actually, it’s a funny story because all I remember is waking up in some weird - it looked like it was a blue van - flashing lights. I didn’t know what it was. It was flashing lights I was thinking I was dreaming. “I woke up in this van and then we finally stopped and I just blacked out again. I didn’t remember anything.” Christion’s road back to Alcovy was long and laborious. He said he had to learn to do things he had long taken for granted all over again, starting with re-

hab in the hospital. After he discharged from the hospital on March 1, his birthday, he had to go to what he called day rehab. “I got discharged from the hospital, but it wasn’t over after that,” he said, “After they discharged me from the hospital I had what was called ‘day rehab,’ where you go there like school. I was going over covering the same things I was doing in the hospital, just more sort of advanced. “I was doing physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy, every day for I believe it was a month. So I finally graduated from that. But after I graduated from that, the journey still wasn’t over.” Christion said after he got home there was still more therapy. “It takes a lot of work to get the range of motion back if you’ve lost it,” he said. “I filed for occupational therapy, speech therapy and physical therapy. So after a few weeks, we decided that I didn’t need anymore physical or speech, but for the occupational, I kept doing that. Christion did hospital homebound while he was in day rehab to keep up with his studies. He was determined to get back to Alcovy. “Me being me, I was always ready to go back to school. It’s when they decided,” he said. Christion made it back to Alcovy with two weeks left in the 2015-2016 school year. He said it took a lot of work to

make it back. “It was a whole bunch of stuff,” he said. “I would say that there were times where I was just like, man this is too much. I don’t even know if I want to do it anymore. But I just kept pushing myself and I got through it.” Christion explained that one of his sustained injuries was a traumatic brain injury. “I could go on all day about the things that happen with that. The key point is that it makes it harder to focus,” he said. “It gets you really fatigued. It’s like you’re basically like a little kid again. You’ve got to eat every hour or so.” A two-sport athlete before his injuries, Christion was determined to compete when he got back to Alcovy. He joined the golf team. “I took up golf because my right arm is out of commission but for golf, if you’re right arm dominant you only need your left,” he said. “It’s just sort of a sport where I felt I could thrive.” With his emphasis on keeping up with his studies, Christion maintains a 3.5 GPA as he graduates. He has been accepted and plans to study at Morehouse College in Atlanta in the fall, studying business administration. As he approaches graduation and prepares to start a new chapter, Christion said he’s proud of what he’s accomplished. “I’d say I’m really proud. It’s a milestone for me.”
