Meet Kaia

Throughout her battle with leukemia, Kaia held onto two things: her family, and her smile. Now, ten-year-old Kaia and her family are smiling together as they celebrate her being cancer-free!

“Raising money will help find a cure. Then maybe someday NO ONE will have cancer.”

- Kaia

Kaia enjoys swimming, softball, and soccer – and, like most girls her age, playing with her friends.

The courage and positivity that sustained both Kaia and her family during her battle with cancer continues in her role with Tackle Kids Cancer now. She sees an opportunity to spread strength and encouragement to kids whose place she once was in.

“Stay strong,” she advises, “keep fighting hard. You will get through it.”

Kaia and her Crushing Cancer Crew raise money for Eli’s Challenge to be part of the solution to childhood cancer.

“Raising money will help find a cure,” she says, “then maybe someday NO ONE will have cancer.”
