My Story

Layla is a creative, happy, energetic girl who someday wants to grow up to be an artist. She loves to play with her twin sister and her brother and she loves to paint, draw, read her books, and swim.

At 4 years old, Layla was diagnosed with high-risk T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. She underwent 2.5 years of treatment with many ups and downs along the way and very difficult battles which she faced with such courage and determination. She celebrated her end of treatment in August 2020 and although she continues to face ongoing challenges from the effects of treatment, she pushes through with strength and resiliency.

We are very grateful for the many advancements in pediatric cancer research that have improved outcomes for T-Cell Leukemia patients over recent years, and we are incredibly thankful for St. Baldricks helping to make this research possible. Please consider donating today to help other kids fighting cancer and to continue to advance research and develop better treatment options for all types of childhood cancer.
