My Story

Mya was diagnosed with ALL when she was just 3 years old. Her blood counts were so low at diagnosis that her doctor had never seen such low counts in a living person. She is a fighter for sure!  Her treatment was long and painful, so thank you so much for helping support finding a cure for these tiny heroes like Mya.  Maybe one day they won't have to feel the heavy effects of their treatment, both physically and mentally. The trauma of her cancer & treatment will stay with her her entire life, so let's find a cure!

The Childhood Cancer Ripple Effect

Help kids take childhood back from cancer — support lifesaving cancer research today.

Children who are fighting or have fought cancer inspire others to be part of the Foundation's mission — to support the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.
