Every child diagnosed with childhood cancer inspires us to Rally On to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures. Please join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a donation or setting up your own Rally fundraiser today.
In 2018, Jiyah noticed a spot on her leg that was causing some discomfort. She went to the hospital, where she was then sent to numerous other doctors to try to figure out what it was. Eventually, she was diagnosed with a rare form of alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Jiyah had surgery to remove the spot and was in remission for 5 months, until it metastasized. She has been fighting this beast on and off for 5 years with a very intense chemotherapy treatment.
