When Mya, of Fargo, grows up, she wants to be a doctor by day, firefighter by night. When she’s not chasing fires, she’s a loving sister who likes to be a mama bear to her siblings: twin brother, Elijah, and one-year-old brother, Levi. A social butterfly, she is eager to start school next year.
Mya also has Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).
She has been in this fight for the past year, and she is currently in the maintenance phase of treatment, requiring monthly treatments at the Roger Maris Cancer Center, steroids and home-based chemotherapy.
After a tough year of side-effects from her aggressive treatment plan, Mya is currently doing very well and has been enjoying the maintenance phase, though her medications have left her immunocompromised, which can often limit social interactions. Mya is ready to be around more people, so that she can play!
Mya, while you may not be a doctor and firefighter quite yet, you’re already a hero in our books.
