Meet Nyah, our 2024 spokeskid

From a young age, Nyah had been a gifted athlete. Soccer was her game. It was all she imagined for her future. But all of that changed in 2017 when she was diagnosed with leukemia. After relapsing twice, Nyah underwent a bone marrow transplant. Now 16 and cancer-free, Nyah is battling graph-versus-host disease, a serious side effect of transplantation. Sadly, she can no longer play soccer, but she has the heart of a champion and isn’t letting any of this stop her. Nyah found hope and healing in Kids Cancer Care where she has found a community of youth walking a similar path through our camp and teen leadership programs. These days, she’s focusing on her studies with the hope of becoming a pediatric oncologist. And when she’s ready, there will be a Kids Cancer Care Derek Wandzura Memorial Scholarship waiting for her.  Your generosity is helping young people navigate the setbacks of cancer and helping to build the next generation of resilient young leaders.
