Maya is a thoughtful and funny 4-year-old from Los Angeles, CA. She loves to dance and sing and expects a round of applause after one of her performances. She is a natural leader and her preschool peers gravitate towards her. She is selfless, generous and inclusive because she will make sure nobody is left out. Her sweet voice and kindness radiates positivity in every situation. Her strength and light through her cancer journey not only inspires her family but everyone around her.
Maya’s journey began when she was just 2 and a half years old when her family became concerned about unexplained bruising all over her body. Prior to the bruising she had been craving ice and eating poorly, something that they mistook as a developmental stage of pick eating. Maya had to rush into the ER because blood tests showed that her platelets were dangerously low and she was potentially at risk for internal bleeding. Further testing would show cancer cells in her blood and she would undergo a bone marrow biopsy that would confirm Maya had pre-b Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
Our mission is to raise $5,000 to send Maya and her family on a dream trip to Disney World and Give Kids The World Village, so they can make wonderful new memories together.
It will cost $5,000 to fulfill our goal to cover the costs of Maya's trip to Disney World.
If just 50 people gave $100, we would reach this goal!
Any funds raised exceeding Maya's goal will go towards our dream bank, to help more kids like Maya.
