Meet Kiara — a Tween with a Mission
At just 12 years old, Kiara is more thoughtful, determined, and philanthropic than most of us. Her grit and grace belie her years. We first met Kiara in late 2017 when she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Kiara has endured surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy.
Kiara and our Director of Family Services recently spoke with the entire student body at her school. Kiara spoke openly about her cancer – helping her classmates better understand what kids with cancer go through and allowing them to ask questions. What an empowering and meaningful experience for all!
“She now knows her voice matters and she wants to encourage others to use their voice as well.”
