Maya was born healthy on May 7, 2010. Nine months later, Maya had a very high fever and her family rushed her to Miami Children’s Hospital at the advice of her pediatrician. There, Maya was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a cancer of the white blood cells. Maya then began a two year chemotherapy protocol to treat the disease. Thanks to the efforts of the hospital oncology staff, she is now a strong and healthy 2-year-old. While Maya continues to grow, the battle is not yet over. Although Maya went into remission two months after starting her treatment, she still has almost another year of chemotherapy to fully complete her treatment. Maya’s family members feel very blessed and fortunate to have the support and care of Miami Children’s Hospital helping work for the wellness of their most precious gift: Maya.
